United Airlines has launched daily flights
between its Washington hub, Dulles International Airport, and
Doha, Qatar, via Dubai.
The extension of the existing Dubai service to
Doha is the first of three new, previously announced United
services from Washington Dulles. The airline will introduce
nonstop service between Dulles and Manchester, U.K. today (1 May),
and between Dulles and Dublin, Ireland, on 7 June 2012.
“We are delighted to add Doha to United’s global
route network,” said James Mueller, United’s vice president
Atlantic & Pacific Sales. “Our customers in both the U.S. and
Qatar will benefit from increased travel opportunities and options
with this new service.”
United operates the
Washington/Dulles-Dubai-Doha service with a Boeing 777 aircraft,
which has a total of 269 seats – eight in United Global First, 40
in United BusinessFirst and 221 in United Economy, including 108
Economy Plus seats with added legroom.
United also operates nonstop or one-stop
service to Dubai, Kuwait City and Bahrain from Washington/Dulles.
