United Airlines said Thursday it has agreed to fly the San Francisco Giants baseball team to road games and work with the defending World Series champions on customer and fan promotions.

The Chicago-based airline will also get its name on more signs inside the Giants’ stadium, AT&T Park, and on the schedule page of the baseball club’s website under a letter of agreement signed by the team and the air carrier. Financial terms were not disclosed.

A Giants spokeswoman said the team previously used Delta on road trips. The deal with United began with a season-opening road trip last week, she said.

United, part of United Continental Holdings Inc., operates more than 250 daily flights from San Francisco International Airport, where it is the dominant carrier. Last year, United accounted for 44 percent of capacity and no other airlines were above 8 percent, according to the airport.
