Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 29 October 2008

United Airlines has launched its first-ever nonstop flights between Washington, D.C., and Dubai.

The new Washington – Dubai route expands United’s breadth of service to the Middle East and strengthens the company’s Washington Dulles hub as an international gateway. United also serves Kuwait City daily from Washington Dulles in addition to 21 other international destinations. Washington Dulles also offers valuable connections to more than 58 destinations in the United States.

United Flight 976 will depart Washington Dulles at 10:02 p.m. arriving in Dubai at 6:50 p.m. the following day. United Flight 977 will depart Dubai at 11:30 p.m. and arrive in Washington at 6:44 a.m. the following day. When U.S. Daylight Savings Time ends on November 2, arrival and departure times for Dubai are one hour later.

“Dubai is one of the fastest growing tourist and commercial centers in the Middle East," said Kevin Knight, United's senior vice president-Planning. “This route answers customer demand for more convenient, nonstop service to the Middle East and strengthens our international network by connecting these important cities like never before.”

Customers flying to Dubai on United will be able to enjoy specially designed cuisine. United First customers will have an option of three Western selections as well as a Halal entrée of chicken curry with basmati rice, vegetable jalfrezi and pickled vegetables. United First guests may also dine on what they want when they want with United’s flexible and customizable dining option.

United Business customers will have an option of two Western selections as well as a Halal prepared entrée of Lamb korma, saag kabul and dhal complemented by sides of spinach with garbanzo beans and curried yellow lentils. United Business guests can also select a traditional dinner served in courses or United’s Express Dine service – a complete meal served at once.

To complement United First and United Business meals, United’s Sommelier Doug Frost, one of only three people in the world to hold both the title of Master Sommelier and Master of Wine, has selected wines that will be available on United Flight 976.

United will operate combined passenger and cargo service between Washington and Dubai using a Boeing 777 aircraft configured with 10 United First Suite seats, 45 United Business seats and 198 United Economy seats, including 84 Economy Plus seats. With the Boeing 777 aircraft, United has the capability to carry about 15 tons of cargo from Washington Dulles to Dubai and about 7 tons of cargo from Dubai to Washington Dulles.
