United Airlines has unveiled plans to launch nonstop flights
between its hub at Washington Dulles International Airport and Tel
Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport.
Scheduled to commence on 22 May 2019
subject to government approval, the new flight will be the first
to be operated by a U.S. carrier between the two cities.
United's new route to Tel Aviv
will be the carrier's fourth flight to Israel. The airline currently
operates a twice-daily service between New York/Newark and Tel Aviv
and a daily nonstop service between San Francisco and Tel Aviv.
"As we begin celebrating 20 years of service in Israel, we
want to thank our customers and employees who have helped make
United the top U.S. airline serving Israel," said Patrick Quayle,
United's vice president of International Network. "We thank the
Israeli government for its ongoing support and partnership. We
look forward to continuing to serve Israel with this new service
for our customers traveling between the U.S. capital and one of
the most advanced science and technology sectors in the world."
United's new service between Washington Dulles and Tel Aviv
will offer convenient connections to nearly 70 destinations in the
United States, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland,
Houston, Dallas and Miami.
"We are thrilled to welcome
another United Airlines flight to Israel from the United States,"
said Yariv Levin, Israel's Minister of Tourism. "Today's
announcement is a wonderful way to celebrate United's 20 year
history in Israel and opens many more opportunities for both
countries to continue to build strong relationships while growing
business and expanding tourism."
