United Airlines launches six new routes to its network

United’s new route from Washington Dulles to Dublin was celebrated with an Irish themed cake.

United’s new route from Washington Dulles to Dublin is the airline’s second route to the Irish capital. The city pairs attracted 35,000 passengers last year in spite of the lack of a direct service.

  • United Airlines launched six routes from across five of its bases last week. Only one airport, Washington Dulles, VA (IAD) saw the launch of two routes; one international and one domestic. This is United’s second route to Dublin (DUB) after flights from Newark and it is the airline’s ninth route to Honolulu, HI (HNL) from the US mainland and its second from the US East Coast after Newark. With the exception of the Hawaii route, all other services launched by United last week are seasonal. The only to face competition is the route from Denver, CO (DEN) to Fairbanks, AK (FAI), which faces Frontier’s four flights a week. Commenting the new route to Ireland, Dublin Airport Authority’s interim CEO Oliver Cussen said: “Last year, despite the lack of a direct service, about 35,000 people travelled between Dublin and Washington D.C. and the advent of United’s new direct daily service will significantly grow that market. Ireland is a key location for US foreign direct investment in Ireland, as American firms have invested more in Ireland than in Brazil, Russia, India and China combined. The US is also a major inbound tourism market for Ireland and vice versa.”
