New Nonstop to Houston Lifts Off June 8, 2018

On June 8, 2018, United Airlines flight 4229 will depart for the first time from the Dayton International Airport (DAY) at 7:08 a.m. and is projected to arrive Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) at 8:46 a.m.

“A new nonstop flight for our passengers is always something we love to celebrate,” said Terry Slaybaugh, director of aviation for the City of Dayton. “Thanks to United Airlines’ decision to add more air service to Texas, Dayton residents and visitors can now skip the layovers when they travel to Houston.”

As of June 5th, 40 of the 50 seats available have been booked on the ERJ-135. The airport will be offering passengers free donuts and Fly Dayton branded merchandise at Gate B-17. Each week, United will offer seven flights to connect the two cities.

“United Airlines has helped make it possible for Dayton-area customers to easily connect to major business centers and leisure destinations around the world,” said Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of Domestic Network Planning. “The start of new United service between Dayton and our Houston hub opens up a world of possibilities and offers customers more opportunities to make convenient connections to destination across the United States as well as to Latin America.”

The addition of Houston marks the 17th nonstop destination from Dayton International Airport. To book your flight, visit flydayton.com/destinations/houston.
