Airport to launch non-stop flight to D.C. this fall




United Airlines will begin non-stop, daily service between Chattanooga and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) on Oct. 4, 2018. United also will suspend service to Newark when this new route to Dulles begins in October.

The Washington Dulles flight will be the second non-stop route to the nation’s capital from the Chattanooga Airport, which provides travelers with direct flights to nine cities and connections to many international destinations. The aircraft will be an Embraer RJ 50.

“While we’re disappointed with the cancellation of the Newark service, we appreciate United’s ongoing commitment to our region and our passengers,” says Terry Hart, president of Chattanooga Airport.

The new direct flight between Chattanooga and Washington Dulles will begin in October with two daily departures from both destinations. The United flights to Washington Dulles will depart at 2:42 p.m. and 7:35 p.m., and the flights to Chattanooga will depart at 8:15 a.m. and 5:05 p.m. daily.

Passengers can book flights to Washington Dulles through the Chattanooga Airport’s recently launched website, www.ChattAirport.com.
