Beginning October 26, United will operate two daily nonstop flights between San Francisco and Hong Kong giving customers the choice of midday or late-night departures from both airports.
“The addition of a second daily nonstop flight between San Francisco and Hong Kong offers customers more flexibility and convenience when planning travel to one of the world’s largest business markets,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network.
“We look forward to offering customers a schedule that fits their travel needs with convenient times and greater connectivity to United’s extensive and growing network.”
United’s schedule between San Francisco and Hong Kong offers business and leisure customers more flexibility when planning travel. United’s new evening departure from San Francisco gives customers a morning arrival in Hong Kong to start their day and the new evening departure from Hong Kong will arrive into San Francisco in the evening. These two flights combined will offer customers more options to connect to 80 destinations beyond San Francisco.
This year, United started nonstop seasonal service from San Francisco to Amsterdam; and extended Auckland, New Zealand and Tahiti, French Polynesia services to year-round. The airline also began a second daily flight to Seoul, South Korea and twice-daily service to Toronto, Canada. In October, United will begin seasonal nonstop service to Melbourne, Australia and new seasonal service to New Delhi in December.
With these new routes, the airline will serve 29 international destinations from San Francisco, including eight cities in Europe, India and the Middle East; seven in North America; and 14 in Asia and Oceania.
United, the largest airline at San Francisco International Airport, operates more than 300 daily flights.
