United Airlines announced Wednesday it is continuing to strengthen its domestic route network by offering more ways for customers to connect between Washington Dulles (IAD) and Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport (ITH). United is adding a third daily flight to its schedule between Washington, D.C., and Ithaca with an ERJ-145 regional aircraft. From its hub at Washington Dulles, United offers customers access to more than 70 cities across the United States and nearly 40 destinations in Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Tickets are now available for purchase for the flight.

"Ithaca is a vital economic centerpiece for business and tourism in Upstate New York, and United Airlines is proud to offer customers the only non-stop service between Washington, DC, and Ithaca," said Jill Kaplan, United's President of New York and New Jersey. "The addition of a third daily flight to our schedule offers our customers more choice and convenience to travel between Ithaca and Washington-Dulles."

"I'm very excited – but not surprised – that it took only a few months for our community to show that we'd make great use of United's convenient nonstop service between Ithaca and Washington, D.C.," said Martha Robertson, Chair, Tompkins County Legislature.

"Cornell University is thrilled by today's announcement by United Airlines," said Joel M. Malina, Cornell's vice president for university relations. "Many of our faculty and staff engage with federal policymakers on a regular basis, and having an additional daily flight from Dulles to ITH will make day trips to our nation's capital more feasible. We thank United Airlines, Airport Director Mike Hall and County Legislature Chair Martha Robertson for their ongoing efforts to make ITH an increasingly vital resource for Cornell and our shared community."
