 ATLANTIC COAST AIRLINES ANNOUNCES NEW DAILY SERVICE
 TO SAVANNAH, GA., BEGINNING MAY 5
 WASHINGTON, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- United Express service will come to the Savannah International Airport on May 5, when Atlantic Coast Airlines begins twice daily service from its hub at Washington Dulles International Airport.
 "We are very enthusiastic about our new Savannah service, which will allow customers from Savannah and the Hilton Head resort area to continue to enjoy the benefits of one stop access to United's worldwide network of destinations," said Kerry Skeen, chief operating officer of Atlantic Coast Airlines. The flights, conveniently timed to allow passengers to connect onto other United Airlines and United Express flights, will be operated with the Embraer Brasilia 120, one of the fastest and most technologically advanced turboprop aircraft in the world.
 Washington Dulles International Airport serves as the East Coast hub for both United Airlines and United Express. Together, United and United Express offer more than 200 daily departures to 63 domestic destinations. Washington Dulles has also become a leading gateway to Europe, with United's introduction of non-stop service to its hub at London Heathrow, and also to Frankfurt, Germany; Paris; and Madrid. On June 1, United will add Brussels, Belgium, to the list of non-stop markets in Europe. Passengers originating on United Express in Savannah will enjoy the benefits of one-stop check-in to Europe on United Airlines.
 The announcement marks the first United Express destination offered in the state of Georgia. The carrier currently services Charleston, Columbia and Greenville/Spartanburg in neighboring South Carolina. With the addition of Savannah to the schedule, the United Express carrier will serve 36 East Coast cities in 14 states and the District of Columbia, and will operate 233 daily departures.
 In a separate announcement, Atlantic Coast Airlines said that it will begin non-stop service between White Plains and Buffalo, N.Y., on May 5. United Express will operate four round trips between the two key New York state markets each business day.
 Through a comprehensive marketing agreement with United Airlines, Atlantic Coast Airlines operates as United Express. Flight schedules are closely coordinated to offer customers the benefits of one stop check-in to worldwide destinations on United Airlines. Members of United's popular Mileage Plus frequent flyer program earn a minimum 500 miles on all United Express flights.
