Gov Chris Christie and United CEO Jeff Smisek held a press conference earlier today at Newark Internatinal Airport to announce the news. Officials are saying that this should create a major economic boost for Atlantic City.

The flights from Houston and Chicago will be daily starting in April. Chicago and Houston are United’s largest hub airports.
