United Airlines has launched its first nonstop flight between the Washington, DC area and Tel Aviv from its hub at Dulles Airport.
It is the carrier’s third U.S. gateway to Israel and United is the only airline providing nonstop, year-round service between DC and Tel Aviv.
“We are honored to welcome this route from Tel Aviv to Dulles International Airport as we forge a new link between our two countries,” said Jack Potter, president and chief executive officer of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. “Today, Tel Aviv joins 57 other nonstop international destinations from Dulles International. We are pleased to be able to offer passengers unparalleled connectivity to more than 40 other countries across five continents.”
The flights depart Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
