United connects Washington Dulles with Manchester Airport in England

Flanked by the United crew, Clive Memmott, CEO Manchester Chamber of Commerce, and Mats Sigurdson, Manchester Airport Group’s Commercial Director Aviation, held the ribbon for Bob Schumacher, United’s Managing Director Sales UK & Ireland, to cut. Celebrating the new Washington Dulles link with Manchester were also Barbers shop quartet members Rod Butcher, John Brough, George Badland and Henry Foster.

  • United Airlines added its second route to Manchester (MAN) in northern England on 1 May when the Star Alliance airline complemented its daily Newark services with a daily operation from its Washington Dulles, DC (IAD) hub. Flights operate with 169-seat 757-200s. This makes Washington DC the ninth US airport served from Manchester. Bob Schumacher, United’s Managing Director Sales UK & Ireland, said: “We are delighted to launch non-stop service between Manchester and the US capital. Having operated our Manchester-New York/Newark service successfully for 17 years, the new Manchester-Washington/Dulles service will further benefit our customers in the North West, offering reduced journey times between the two cities as well as increased travel options.”
