Record domestic flight for United Airlines

Washington (Dulles) to Honolulu non-stop is the star new route to be introduced next summer by United Airlines as it fully gets into stride with the Continental merger completed. 

Flown by a Boeing 767-400 the flight time is likely to be around 10 hours plus, making it probably the world’s second longest domestic flight, just less than United’s own Newark to Hawaii service.  At around 4,800 miles it is 150 miles short of first place, but somewhat longer than the Moscow to Vladivostok route at 3,998 miles.  United is the biggest carrier between the mainland US and Hawaii, connecting the Aloha State with eight mainland cities, as well as Tokyo, Guam and Majuro.  It is also the largest airline with domestic and international services from the nation’s capital.

United also plans to add seasonal services to popular summer travel destinations from Denver, Houston and San Francisco. www.united.com
