CHICAGO (TVLW) – United Airlines today announced that it will serve nine new east coast cities from its hub at Washington-Dulles International Airport. Service between Dulles and Bradford, Pa.; Jamestown, N.Y.; and Parkersburg, W.Va. will begin January 7, and flights to all nine cities are now open for sale.

United customers in Altoona, Pa.; Beckley, W.Va.; Clarksburg, W.Va.; Johnstown, Pa.; Morgantown, W.Va.; and Shenandoah Valley, Va. will have service to Washington-Dulles in early 2008.

“We are pleased to offer our east coast customers what they want — more air service with a convenient schedule and easy connections to cities across the world,” says Kevin Knight, United Airlines senior vice president — Planning.

“With today’s announcement of direct service to Dulles, new and more reliable domestic and international travel options to our state are opening up,” says Senator Jay Rockefeller, Chair of the Aviation Subcommittee of Senate Commerce. “I commend Colgan and United for taking this step so that West Virginia businesses and families will have better air service options.”

United Express will offer service through its regional partner Colgan Air with a Saab SF-340 aircraft with 34 seats onboard.

United’s hub in Washington gives customers one-stop service to 26 international cities, including South America and Asia, and 84 cities across the United States. Since last year, United has added daily service from Washington to Beijing, Rome, Rio de Janeiro, and Tokyo.

Service to and from Washington is scheduled to begin on the following dates:

— January 7 — Bradford, Pa.; Jamestown, N.Y.; and Parkersburg, W.Va.
— January 21 — Clarksburg, W.Va. and Morgantown, W.Va.
— February 4 — Altoona, Pa. and Johnstown, Pa.
— February 18 — Beckley, W.Va. and Shenandoah Valley, Va.
