United offers New Domestic and Seasonal Flights

Nonstop Washington Dulles to Honolulu

The Washington D.C. Metro area was one of the few big cities without non-stop flights to Hawaii.  Today, January 31, 2012, United announced they would begin service between Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and Honolulu (HNL) starting on June 7, 2012.

The Honolulu flight will be operated with a Boeing 767-400 aircraft and will operate year-round.

Summer Seasonal Flights from Denver, Houston, and San Francisco


Fairbanks, Alaska, is a new one for the route map – United will operate this seasonal flight from their Denver hub from June 7, 2012, through August 27, 2012.  The Denver (DEN) to Fairbanks (FAI) flight will be operated by a Boeing 737-800.  Fairbanks provides easy access to Denali National Park, one of the states most visited attractions.

Should visiting the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, and the Badlands National Park be on your list, United Express will operate daily seasonal flights between Houston Intercontinental (IAH) and Rapid City, South Dakota (RAP).  The flight will be operated by ExpressJet with the Embraer ERJ-145.  United also provides flights to Rapid City from Denver and Chicago.

Yellowstone National Park or the Grand Tetons anyone?  United will add flights this summer from their hubs in Houston (IAH) and San Francisco (SFO) to Jackson Hole, Wyoming (JAC).  The Houston flight will operate twice a week from June 8, 2012, to August 27, 2012, with a mainline Boeing 757.  San Francisco to Jackson Hole will be a daily flight, operated as United Express by SkyWest Airlines using Bombardier CRJ-700 aircraft.  These two routes are in addition to existing flights to Jackson Hole from Chicago, Denver, and Los Angeles.
