A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport on 4 October to officially open United Airlines’ inaugural service from Washington Dulles, a route that will be flown 13 times weekly. Pictured cutting the ribbon are: Tim McGinley, Airport Board Vice-Chairman, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport; Carl Beardsley, Executive Director, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport; Patrick O’Malley, Commissioner, Lackawanna County; and Tom Reich, Air Service Program Manager, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. Flights will be operated using 50-seat CRJ 200s.
- United Airlines launched four regional services over the past seven days, three of which originate from Washington Dulles (IAD), with the other being inaugurated from Denver (DEN). It should be noted that all routes launching from Dulles are services which have been switched from New York Newark, while none of the four routes added to the network this week will face direct competition. All sectors will be flown on either 50-seat CRJ 200s or 50-seat E145s. See how Chattanooga Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
