United Express/Atlantic Coast Airlines to Expand Service With New Regional Jet Flights to Four Destinations
Flights From Washington Dulles to Cincinnati and From Chicago O'Hare To Grand Rapids, Cleveland and Syracuse to Begin August 1st
DULLES, Va., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlantic Coast Airlines (ACA) (Nasdaq: ACAI - news), the Dulles, VA-based United Express carrier announced today it will offer regional jet service from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to Cincinnati (CVG) as well as from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to Grand Rapids, MI (GRR), Cleveland, OH (CLE) and Syracuse, NY (SYR) beginning August 1, 2001.

The Washington-to-Cincinnati schedule will include four daily roundtrip flights. Each of ACA's new Chicago destinations will be served by one round- trip United Express regional jet flight per day. United Express/ACA already offers service from both Cleveland and Syracuse to Washington Dulles. Grand Rapids is a new destination for ACA.

All the new United Express jet flights will be serviced by the 50- passenger Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ), considered one of the fastest, quietest regional aircraft available today. The CRJ flies at speeds of 530 miles per hour at an altitude of up to 41,000 feet. For passenger comfort, the CRJ provides two-by-two seating throughout the entire cabin, eliminating the ``middle seat.''

Atlantic Coast operates as United Express in the Eastern and Midwestern United States, and as Delta Connection in the Eastern U.S. The company has a fleet of 113 aircraft and offers approximately 650 daily departures, serving 55 destinations in the U.S. and Canada.

Atlantic Coast employs over 3,500 aviation professionals. The common stock of Atlantic Coast Airlines Holdings, Inc. is traded on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol ACAI. For more information about Atlantic Coast, visit its website at .

Any thoughts? I sure hope GRR doesnt lose mainline 733's, 722's, and the occasional 757 to this airline. I doubt it. I think Air Wisconsin would serve GRR instead of ACA.
