United Airlines has announced plans for a new nonstop route between Washington Dc and Tel Aviv, to launch on May 22, 2019.

United to fly Washington-Tel Aviv route

The thrice weekly service will depart Washington at 2230 on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, arriving into Tel Aviv at 1630 the following day, with the return leg leaving the Israeli city at 0020 on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday, landing back in the US at 0550.

The service will be operated by United’s B777-300ER aircraft, and will be the first nonstop route between the two cities by a US carrier.

It will join United’s existing twice daily flights to Tel Aviv from New York’s Newark airport, and the carrier’s daily service from San Francisco.

United began daily flights between Newark and Tel Aviv in 1999, and commenting on the new service Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network, said:

“As we begin celebrating 20 years of service in Israel, we want to thank our customers and employees who have helped make United the top US airline serving Israel.

“We thank the Israeli government for its ongoing support and partnership. We look forward to continuing to serve Israel with this new service for our customers traveling between the US capital and one of the most advanced science and technology sectors in the world.”
