Expanding the Airway Network
United Airlines is all set to increase its flight routes with a new nonstop connection from Berlin Brandenburg Airport to Washington Dulles International Airport. The service, using a Boeing 767-400ER, will operate daily from May 26 to October 28, 2023.
Effortless City Transfers
In addition to the new route, passengers wishing to travel downtown Washington D.C. can now avail of a direct Metro connection established in late 2022. The Silver Line Metro whisks passengers straight to the National Mall in the U.S. capital and other destinations in Virginia.
A Special Place for Germany in United’s Plans
“Germany traditionally holds a special place in United’s flight schedule,” Thorsten Lettnin, United Airlines Director of Sales Continental Europe, Middle East, Africa, India, and Israel, stated. This expansion is a testament to that relationship, aiming to provide passengers with more options and flexibility.
Record-Breaking Flight Offerings from Germany
United is set to offer up to 18 flights per day from Germany – specifically Frankfurt, Munich, and Berlin – during the summer of 2023. This equates to a whopping 4,974 seats daily, making it the most extensive flight offering from Germany ever.
In conclusion, United Airlines’ new direct route from Berlin to Washington D.C. is a significant step in its ongoing commitment to improving and expanding its services. This move not only enhances the accessibility of transatlantic travel but also underscores the special relationship between the airline and Germany.
