Bridging The Gap

  Friday 24 November, 2017
Direct flights between Edinburgh and Washington DC will operate from next summer.

A DIRECT route between the capital of Scotland and the capital of the USA will operate from next summer.

United Airlines will operate the daily service between Edinburgh Airport and Dulles International Airport, Washington DC from May 23 next year.

Airport bosses say it’s the first time there has been a direct route between the two airports.

The airline will continue to run year-round flights to New York Newark in addition to extending their Chicago summer service.

Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “This is fantastic news for Edinburgh Airport and Scotland as we connect our two capital cities for the first time.

“Our partners at United have seen first-hand the positive impact of flights from Edinburgh to New York Newark and Chicago, and we are keen to replicate that to Washington for both a business and tourist audience.

“The Scottish economy will also benefit as we open up Edinburgh to a new market and as international passengers continue to soar, we will see a positive contribution to the local and national economy.”
