United Airlines Expands Florida Services

United Airlines announced more flights and more opportunities for customers to connect between Washington, D.C., and Florida starting from October 2019.

Beginning October 29, United will begin new twice-daily, year-round service between Washington Dulles and Fort Myers and Sarasota in Florida. Additionally, United will begin operating extended seasonal winter service between Miami and Washington Dulles starting two months earlier than originally planned in October 2019.

United’s new service to Fort Myers and Sarasota complements the airline’s growing Florida network of more than 50 routes served from Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

“These new routes offer our customers many more opportunities to conveniently travel year-round between Florida and our Washington hub,” said Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of Domestic Network Planning. “Our schedule offers customers from Fort Myers and Sarasota easy connections to more than 130 flights across the United States and 11 European destinations with just one stop.”
