United Airlines is back in Hong Kong for the first time since the pandemic.
United Airlines has resumed its non-stop service between Hong Kong and San Francisco.
The debut flight took-off from Hong Kong on March 6, the first United passenger service out of the city since the start of the pandemic.
United’s regional director of sales for Greater China, Walter Dias, and US consul general Gregory May were at the departure gate to celebrate the return of United Airlines to Hong Kong.
“We see the relaunch of United Airlines’ non-stop service to San Francisco as a tremendous step forward in the recovery of US airline services to Hong Kong after a challenging three years,” said May. “In the months ahead, we are eager to welcome more visitors from Hong Kong and connect with passengers from across the Asia Pacific region to the United States.”
The airline celebrates its 40th anniversary in Hong Kong this year.
Flight UA862 will leave Hong Kong daily at 12.20pm, arriving in San Francisco at 8.45am on the same day. The return flight, UA877, departs San Francisco daily at 10.40pm and will land in Hong Kong at 6am two days later. All flights will use a B777 aircraft with Polaris business class seats, United Premium Plus seats and economy class seats.
