Ultimate Air Shuttle is launching four-times-weekly service with 30-seat Dornier 328JETs between Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Field Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport on June 6.

The operator says its new scheduled-charter service will allow passengers to leave Lunken Field at 7:45 a.m. and return the same day by 7:45 p.m. Ultimate Air Shuttle will operate the new service on Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays, the same days on which its existing services to New York and Chicago operate. All three services leave Lunken Field between 6:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. and return between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.


Passengers will depart from the Ultimate Air Landmark South building at 4700 Airport Road in Lunken Field Airport (LUK). Ultimate Air Shuttle says that for passengers wishing to get to downtown Washington D.C. from Dulles Airport – which is some 30 miles west of the city – transportation to Union Station, located in the heart of the city’s business district near Capitol Hill, can be arranged for a nominal charge.

The well-appointed interiors of Ultimate Jet Charters' 30-seat Fairchild Dornier 328JETs allow people as tall as 6 feet 4 inches to stand up without hitting their heads on the ceiling

Ultimate Air Shuttle already serves New York City and Chicago from Lunken Field Airport. Like the carrier’s existing services, the Washington D.C. shuttle will leave from the hassle-free Lunken Airport, offering passengers shorter pre-flight arrival times, free parking, no baggage fees and comfortable seating. Passengers will be able to return the same day, or stay as long as they desire.

The carrier offers flat-rate pricing and allows travelers to stay one day, 30 days, or more at their destination.

“This is the next phase in our expansion plan,” says Rick Pawlak, Ultimate Air Shuttle’s managing director. “Washington D.C. is a wonderful city with a high number of business travelers. Business travelers can now get to Washington D.C. fast and stress-free on the Ultimate Air Shuttle. In addition, the leisure traveler can enjoy our shuttle service and visit any one of our three cities for a long weekend. Washington D.C. offers so many educational opportunities for the family planning their summer vacation.

“All of us at Ultimate Air Shuttle are very excited to launch the Washington D.C. shuttle. We would not have been able to continue our growth without the great support of the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky business community,” adds Pawlak. “It seems travelers are tired of long delays, long lines and arriving early so they can be squeezed into a seat on a full plane. Ultimate Air Shuttles provide the luxury of VIP travel for the cost of commercial service, making Ultimate Air Shuttle a luxury anyone can afford.”

In addition to its three scheduled-charter services, Ultimate also carries thousands of college athletes around the U.S. throughout the collegiate sports season and provides Fortune 500 companies with corporate-shuttle charters. The company expanded into the Cincinnati commercial-service market in 2009.

Ultimate Jet Charters, the parent company of Ultimate Air Shuttle, operates eight Dornier 328JET 30-seat regional jets, offering business and leisure clients a private on-demand service to customers around the country.
