San Francisco, USA - For Napa Valley wine lovers in San Francisco who do not want to drink and drive, United Airlines will offer a flight between San Francisco International Airport and Sonoma Jet Center located in Santa Rosa, California. 

This is a delightful news for Napa and Sonoma residents, Calistoga Spa fans, and Napa wine lovers who have to be stuck in Highway 101 traffic constantly, The flight will only be 50-mile-long and is estimated to take only 20 minutes. That is way better than the minimum of an hour-long trip in a car.

United used to offer the same service 16 years ago, and the Sonoma residents who remember the service welcomed this change with excitement. 

This new flight routine will begin on June 8 and the cheapest roundtrip offered is currently priced as $413 without taxes. 

Napa Valley in California is known as one of the most famous wine regions in the world and is a producer of prized Cabernet Sauvignon. Calistoga, a city in Napa County, is also known for its hot springs spas.
