United launching Newark-Washington DC shuttle service

United Airlines is launching a new hourly shuttle service between its Newark hub and Washington, DC.

There will be 13 daily flights starting on March 29, using three-class 50-seat Bombardier CRJ-550 regional aircraft.

The jet offers 10 seats in United First, 20 seats in Economy Plus, and 20 Economy seats.

According to United it has more legroom per seat than any other 50-seat aircraft in operation in the US.

"Our customers who regularly travel between Washington, DC and New York - one of the busiest routes in the country - have told us they value convenient flights and a comfortable ride above all else," said Sarah Murphy, United Express SVP.

Departures from Newark begin at 6.00am through 8.00pm daily.

Tickets are now available for purchase.

  • "Shuttle"?

    The word "shuttle" has a particular meaningh for me in the air transport context. It was Eastern who implemented the first shuttle in the north east of the USA. The critical selling point was no need to book. They operated every hour and, if the hour you wanted to go, the plane was full they had a standby and there were even a couple of occasions when (to great publicity) they operated a flight with just one passenger. The initial flights were operated by 100 seat Electras using Super Constellations as the back up. Is this a shuttle? It doesn't look like it to me. No mention of backups and, despite the claim, when I look at 9th July EWR-DCA it isn't even hourly, there's no flight at 1000. It's not even operated by United but by Gojet and Republic Airlines.
