United Adds 3 New Flights To Washington Dulles



United Airlines is adding three new routes to the nation’s capital as the carrier looks to grow its mid-Atlantic hub at Washington’s Dulles Airport.

United will start flights between Dulles and Akron/Canton in Ohio, Philadelphia and West Palm Beach airports.

The new routes will begin next year.

United will offer one daily round-trip flight between Dulles and West Palm Beach starting February 13; on May 8, United will start three daily flights between Dulles and Akron-Canton and four daily flights between Dulles and Philadelphia.

Regional jets will be used to operate the routes, including 70-seat Bombardiers for West Palm Beach and 50-seaters for the relatively short flights from Washington to Akron/Canton and Philadelphia.

Delta Air Lines Upgrades Health, Safety Guidelines



As travel restrictions are lifted, Delta Air Lines has implemented a series of health protocols to keep passengers safe as they fly again during the coronavirus outbreak and moving forward.

From the time customers check-in for their flights until they collect their bags at the final destination, Delta officials claim the company’s main focus has shifted to the health and safety of passengers.

In the airport, travelers will notice check-in lobbies, self-service kiosks, gate counters and baggage claim are thoroughly wiped down throughout the day, while electrostatic spraying will take place in the planes and throughout terminals.

In addition, Delta continues to install plexiglass shields at check-in counters, in Delta Sky Clubs and at gate counters throughout the United States. Social distance markers will also be added at all of the airports served by the airline.

Hand sanitizer stations will also become easily accessible throughout the facilities.

“The (travel) experience is a very comfortable, a very safe experience, we have taken actions, even above and beyond what the CDC has recommended to ensure safety,” Delta Chief Customer Experience Officer Bill Lentsch said in a statement.

As for the actual onboard experience, Delta is now boarding passengers back to front and limiting it to 10 customers at a time to minimize your contact with others. The carrier is also blocking middle seats, adjusting capacity numbers and requiring face coverings.

Before passengers board the planes, cleaning crews complete an extensive checklist of procedures using high-grade disinfectant to wipe down personal and common areas of the cabin.

Delta also temporarily streamlined food and beverage offerings to reduce touchpoints, with snack bags given out during the first pass through the cabin by flight attendants.
