First ever air shuttle between Liberty and Dulles

United Express to launch 13 daily flights linking Newark and Washington DC

United Airlines (UA) is launching a new hourly shuttle service between Washington’s Reagan National Airport and New York/Newark Liberty International Airport from 29 March.

UA will operate the world’s only two-cabin 50-seat regional aircraft – the Bombardier CRJ-550 – on almost all of the 13 daily flights.

“Our customers who regularly travel between Washington, DC and New York – one of the busiest routes in the country – have told us they value convenient flights and a comfortable ride above all else,” said Sarah Murphy, United’s Senior VP of United Express. “With our new shuttle service aboard the one-of-a-kind CRJ-550, United Airlines is the only carrier to deliver both.”

The CRJ-550 is a first-of-its-kind jet boasting a wide variety of premium amenities, including:

  • 10 seats in United First, 20 seats in Economy Plus, and 20 Economy seats
  • Space for every customer to bring a roller bag on board.
  • A self-serve refreshment centre for United First customers featuring a wide assortment of snacks and beverages.
  • More overall legroom per seat than any other 50-seat aircraft flown by a US airline.
  • The ability to stay connected while in flight with United Wi-Fi.

United’s daily shuttle service between Newark (EWR) and Washington DC (DCA) is scheduled to operate as follows, subject to time changes:
