United Airlines (UAL) today announced it is expanding its schedule at its East Coast hubs in New York/Newark and Washington-Dulles. The network adjustments build on United’s leading route network at New York/Newark where the airline serves more destinations than any other carrier from the New York City metro area.
Additionally, the changes to its Washington-Dulles schedule will offer more customers easy access to the nation’s capital and seamless connections to flights throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.
Beginning in October, United will maximize the unique strengths of each hub by adding new destinations, additional frequencies and larger two-cabin aircraft.
The schedule adjustments are designed to offer more nonstop flights to destinations popular with New York area customers while reallocating largely connecting passenger flights on short-haul routes to United’s hub at Washington-Dulles.
United will transition service between New York/Newark and Chattanooga, Tennessee; Ithaca, New York, and Scranton, Pennsylvania to Washington-Dulles.
