SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diegans will be able to fly nonstop to Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., for the first time beginning Thursday.
Until now, the only nonstops from Lindbergh Field to the nation's capital flew to Dulles International Airport in suburban Virginia, which is beyond the reach of the region's Metro subway system. San Diego had been the largest city in the country without nonstop service to Reagan National.
The flight will be operated by US Airways, using an Airbus 320.
Flight 65 is scheduled to leave Reagan National at 8:55 a.m. Eastern Time and arrive in San Diego at 11:18 a.m. Pacific Time. The return flight, 66, is set to depart Lindbergh Field at 12:30 p.m. and get to Washington, D.C., at 8:23 p.m.
Officials with the airline and San Diego County Regional Airport Authority plan a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception before the aircraft departs Lindbergh Field.
