United Airlines announced a new nonstop flight between its hub in Washington D.C. and Tel Aviv will start May 22, 2019. The new flight will offer customers convenient, nonstop access between Israel and Washington, D.C., and surrounding areas, including high-tech business centers in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties in Virginia.
United currently operates twice-daily service between New York/Newark and Tel Aviv and daily nonstop service between San Francisco and Tel Aviv.
United Airlines has continuously served Israel since August 1999, when the airline began daily service between its New York/Newark hub and Tel Aviv, and in 2004 it increased to two flights daily. In response to a growing demand for business and tourism travel, United became the first U.S. airline to operate nonstop service between the U.S. West Coast and Tel Aviv from its hub in San Francisco in March 2016, operating three flights weekly with Boeing 787-9 aircraft. In October 2016, United increased its service to daily and earlier this year began operating its newest aircraft, the Boeing 777-300ER, from San Francisco (seasonally) and New York/Newark (year-round).
