Boeing 777 Flight via Dubai

Today, April 30, United Airlines launched service to Doha International (DOH) with one-stop, no change of aircraft, via Dubai International Airport (DXB) from Washington Dulles (IAD).

The add-on flight to Doha is the first of three, previously announced United flights from Washington Dulles.  Next-up is nonstop flights to Manchester, UK (MAN) tomorrow, May 1st, and Dulles to Dublin (DUB) on June 7th.

The new service couldn’t have come at a better time with the opening of an expanded International Arrivals Building at Washington Dulles Airport.  The new Federal Inspection Facility will allow for faster processing with the US Customs and Border Protection.

James Mueller, United’s Vice President Atlantic & Pacific Sales, said, “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 flight with a Boeing 777-200 aircraft seating 269, with eight seats in United Global First, 40 in United BusinessFirst, and 221 in Economy, including 108 Economy Plus seats with extra legroom.
