 ATLANTIC COAST AIRLINES TO INAUGURATE SCHEDULED SERVICE
 TO ATLANTIC CITY FROM WASHINGTON DULLES
 WASHINGTON, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlantic Coast Airlines/United Express announced today that it would inaugurate daily non-stop scheduled service to Atlantic City, N.J., from its hub at Washington Dulles International Airport. Service will begin June 1. The United Express carrier will offer three round trips each business day as well as weekend service. The flights will be operated with the British Aerospace Jetstream 31 aircraft, a state- of-the-art 19-seat turboprop aircraft.
 In conjunction with a national tour operator, Atlantic Coast Airlines has been operating charter air service to Atlantic City since August 1991. Atlantic City will be the second destination in the state of New Jersey to which the carrier operates. Atlantic Coast Airlines began service to Newark on March 2, complementing the existing United Airlines flights in the market.
 Commenting on the upcoming Atlantic City flights, Kerry Skeen, chief operating officer of Atlantic Coast Airlines, said: "Our new service to Atlantic City will add an exciting dimension to the Atlantic Coast Airlines route network. Atlantic City continues to grow as a leading convention center on the eastern seaboard, and the leisure market remains solid as well. With the strength of United's global route system behind us, along with our East Coast network, we offer more worldwide access to Atlantic City than any other airline combination currently in the marketplace."
 Atlantic Coast Airlines serves 36 cities in the eastern United States from its hub at Washington Dulles International Airport. As of June 1, the carrier will operate a fleet of 30 aircraft, comprised of 18 British Aerospace Jetstream 31's and 12 Embraer Brasilia 120's. Atlantic Coast Airlines will offer a total of 246 daily departures with the addition of the Atlantic City flights to the schedule.
 Through a comprehensive marketing agreement with United Airlines, Atlantic Coast Airlines operates as United Express. Customers are offered the benefits of one stop check-in to worldwide destinations on United Airlines through the hub at Washington Dulles International Airport. Members of United's popular Mileage Plus Frequent Flyer program earn a minimum of 500 miles on all United Express flights.
