ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - United Airlines has added Roanoke Blacksburg Regional Airport to its schedule to support what it expects to be additional demand for the Virginia Tech versus Notre Dame football game October 9.

Friday, October 8, the flight will leave South Bend at 5:30 p.m. and arrive in Roanoke at 7:30 p.m. The return flight will depart Roanoke at 8:45 a.m. and arrive in South Bend at 10:35 a.m.
