United Airlines to Launch Flights Between Washington Dulles and Tel Aviv, Israel

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."
