New United Domestic Routes from Hub Cities

United Continental Holdings has announced plans to launch year-round and seasonal service on several new routes to begin in the summer of 2012. United will begin daily year-round service between Washington/Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Honolulu (HNL) on 7th June 2012, the only non-stop service between the two points. The flights will operate using Boeing 767-400 aircraft.

The airline will also add seasonal service to the following summer destinations:

  • Alaska: New daily service between Denver (DEN) and Fairbanks, Alaska (FAI), will operate from 7th June to 27th August using Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Fairbanks offers access to Denali National Park, one of Alaska’s most visited destinations.
  • South Dakota: United Express will offer daily seasonal service between Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Rapid City, S.D. (RAP), gateway to the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore and the Badlands National Park, from 7th June to 27th August. ExpressJet will operate the flights using Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft.
  • Wyoming: The airline will also add summer-season flights between its Houston and San Francisco (SFO) hubs and Jackson Hole, Wyo. (JAC), which attracts millions of summer visitors to nearby Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Tetons. The Houston flights will operate twice weekly from 8th June to 27th August, using Boeing 757 aircraft. The San Francisco flights will operate daily from 1st July to 27th August, as United Express, with Bombardier CR7 aircraft flown by SkyWest Airlines.
