by Alice

United Airlines will inaugurate a new cross-country route from Palm Springs this winter, marking its first-ever East Coast connection to the California desert city.

Starting December 19, United will offer a daily service between Washington-Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Palm Springs International Airport (PSP). The seasonal flight will operate through April 30, 2025, with the following schedule:


Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Palm Springs (PSP): 9 a.m. to 11:40 a.m.


Palm Springs (PSP) to Washington, D.C. (IAD): 1 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.


The flight will last approximately five and a half hours and will be operated on a Boeing 737 MAX-8 aircraft, featuring 16 first-class recliner seats and 150 economy seats.

“This service will be the first connection ever between Washington, D.C. and Palm Springs, creating unparalleled access to Palm Springs from the East Coast and Europe through one of United’s fastest-growing hubs,” stated Patrick Quayle, United’s Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances. “We pride ourselves on offering unique, world-class destinations and are excited to provide our customers with more service to beautiful Greater Palm Springs.”

Travelers can book the new flight through United’s website or app. This addition brings United’s total flights to Palm Springs to six cities, including Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and now Washington, D.C.

United continues to expand its seasonal network, offering flights to popular destinations during peak travel times. Recently, the airline commenced summer seasonal service to Anchorage from its Washington-Dulles hub and will provide flights to top ski destinations this winter, including Bozeman, Montana; Kalispell, Montana; and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Additionally, United has introduced new promotions for its frequent flyer members, such as the opportunity to purchase miles with a 100% bonus.
