United Airlines is a major U.S. airline which operates a large domestic and international route network across the United States and on all six inhabited continents. Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) is one of eight hubs that United operates in the U.S. and serves as its “gateway to the nation’s capital”, connecting business and leisure travelers to the seat of government.
