United seeks approval for SFO and Washington National flights

United seeks approval for SFO and Washington National flights

Wednesday, 10 Jul, 2024 0

United Airlines has applied with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for a new daily roundtrip flight DCA with San Francisco.

If approved, the new route will give customers more nonstop options between DCA and SFO and provide connections from SFO to about two dozen domestic markets as well as seven international destinations.

At least nine of these destinations are without United connection options via San Francisco.

United’s proposed route also seeks to avoid the busiest travel times at Washington National Airport, which is already one of the most congested airports in the country.

“With our hub in San Francisco, United is well positioned to serve the strong customer demand for air travel between DCA and the Bay Area,” said Patrick Quayle, SVP of Global Network Planning and Alliances.

“This new service will give customers a unique morning departure from Washington National and a unique afternoon return departure from San Francisco.”

United’s proposed flight would provide additional scheduling options to customers by offering for the first time a morning departure from DCA to SFO.

United plans to use the Boeing MAX 8 aircraft, with 166 seats.

As a possible alternate option, United also applied for its first-ever DCA-Los Angeles flight.
