“As the gateway to the Washington, D.C., region, we welcome United’s continued growth and investment in new air service routes from Dulles International,” said Yil Surehan, vice president of Airline Business Development with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.
United will start nonstop service three times a week to Tel Aviv starting in May.
Dulles pulled ahead of Reagan National Airport for total passengers in 2018, the first time it has passed the Arlington airport in four years.
Dulles saw 24.1 million passengers in 2018, a five percent increase over 2017.
