United to launch first ever nonstop between Honolulu and Washington Dulles

United will launch new year-round service between Washington-Dulles and Honolulu, the world's largest airline announced Tuesday. The announcement marks the first time the Washington DC metro area has had a nonstop link with the State of Hawai'i. United Flight #1245 will depart Dulles at 12:50PM daily, arriving Honolulu at 5:15PM. United Flight #1286 will depart Honolulu at 8:05PM and arrive Dulles at 11:30 the following morning. The flights will be operated by Continental Airlines 767-400 aircraft equipped with BusinessFirst and Economy seating. Although Dulles is an international hub that feeds United service to Europe, The Middle East, Africa, and South America, the Honolulu flight will depart too early in the day for same day connections, although passengers originating in cities along the Eastern seaboard could see reduced journey times and plane changes when traveling to the 50th State.

United has served Hawai’i since 1947, and today offers more seats between the Aloha State and the Mainland than any other carrier, offering service to five cities on four islands. The Dulles nonstop joins existing United service to Honolulu from Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago O’Hare, Houston, Newark, Tokyo, Guam, and Majuro in the Marshall Islands.

The announcement comes on the heels of Hawaiian Airlines announcing new nonstop service in the Honolulu – New York JFK market beginning in June, as well as plans to interline and eventually code share with JetBlue, which operates a hub at the city.

The new nonstop service to Dulles is currently available for sale, and will begin June 7.
