United will be flying to seven Asia-Pacific destinations from its hub in LA this winter.
United Airlines announced this week that it will be flying daily from Los Angeles to Hong Kong starting this autumn.
The proposed non-stop service is currently subject to approval from the Hong Kong government; if it goes ahead, it will join United’s twice-daily service to San Francisco from the Asian city.
Beginning October 29, the new service will depart Hong Kong airport in the evening, touching down in Los Angeles in the afternoon of the same day. The return flight will begin on October 28 and will depart Los Angeles in the morning, arriving in Hong Kong in the evening of the following day.
All flights will use B787-9 Dreamliners, with 48 seats in business class, 21 seats in Premium Plus and 188 in economy class.
United has also confirmed that it will be launching a new daily service between Manila and San Francisco and between Tokyo and Los Angeles. It will also be running a second daily flight between Taipei and San Francisco. The start dates are to be confirmed.
United has operated out of its Los Angeles hub for more than 50 years and has recently invested US$573 million refreshing its customer-facing spaces in Terminal 7 and Concourse 8 at the airport. The LAX United Club lounge offers a kitchen and bar with an expanded food and beverage menu and seating with views over the Hollywood Hills and the Los Angeles skyline.
If the new Hong Kong service is approved, United will be flying to seven Asia Pacific destinations from Los Angeles this winter, including Hong Kong, Tokyo (Haneda and Narita), Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland.
