On April 15, 2024, United Airlines celebrated the 15th anniversary of non-stop service between Washington DC and Geneva. The first flight was carried out on April 20, 2009.

According to its own information, the carrier has since had around 1,07 million passengers on this route, who were transported on around 7.800 flights. United flies daily from Geneva to Washington, DC. Flight UA 975 takes off at 11 a.m. and lands at Washington-Dulles International Airport at 9:15 p.m. local time after 14:15 hours of flight. A Boeing 767-300ER in a special configuration is used. There are an extra number of seats in the premium classes among the four service classes: 46 flatbed seats in United Polaris, all of which are on the aisle, and 22 seats in United Premium Plus. In addition to Washington, DC, United serves a second US destination, New York, from Geneva. These flights also take place daily.

“We are very proud of this anniversary, as it shows how important this connection to the USA is for our guests. These flights are in high demand, particularly in the premium segment,” explains Reto Schneider, Country Sales Manager for Switzerland and Germany at United Airlines. “From Washington, DC, our guests can also fly to more than 200 destinations throughout the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska. Particularly popular in the summer months, in addition to the large metropolises and classic sun destinations, are the connections to airports near the large national parks such as Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon or Yosemite National Park.”
