United Joins Carriers Bidding for New DCA Slots

United Airlines has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation for a new daily roundtrip flight between Reagan Washington National Airport and San Francisco International Airport, the carrier announced Monday. 

The request comes after passage in May of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization billincluded five new slots for Washington Reagan, also known as DCA. United joins Alaska Airlines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, which each announced in May their intention to apply for one of the DCA slots, as well as Delta Air Lines, which in June announced plans to apply for a slot between DCA and Seattle-Tacoma

American also on Monday submitted an application for its desired DCA-San Antonio slot.

The proposed United plans offer a morning departure from DCA to SFO, with the return in the afternoon, in order to “avoid the most congested travel times at DCA.” The carrier also intends to use Boeing Max 8 aircraft for the route, with a total of 166 seats, including 150 in economy class
