BLUE GRASS AIRPORT AND UNITED AIRLINES ANNOUNCE NON-STOP SERVICE TO WASHINGTON DULLES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

October 15, 2018 – United Airlines announced today that it will add non-stop service between Blue Grass Airport (LEX) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD). With two daily flights, this new service will provide central Kentucky with access to the nation's capital and an excellent gateway for passengers connecting to other regions, including the mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Europe. This new service will begin on February 14 and will replace United's current service to Newark, New Jersey, which will conclude on February 13.

"United's new service between Lexington and Washington Dulles will be a tremendous addition to the airport's route map," said Eric Frankl, executive director of Blue Grass Airport. "In addition to United's existing Lexington service to Chicago and Houston, Washington Dulles will provide United passengers with another non-stop service to the Washington, D.C. area and a connecting hub when traveling to the Northeast as well as to international gateways. We are delighted to see United expand its service from Lexington."

The new flights between Lexington and Washington Dulles will be flown on a 50-seat aircraft and are available for booking immediately on www.united.com. The schedule will begin as follows, but is subject to change.
