United Airlines to Reinstate Daily Services to Beijing and Enhance Flights to Shanghai
United Airlines has announced plans to resume daily flights between San Francisco and Beijing this coming November, alongside an increase in its service frequency to Shanghai, initiating daily flights from San Francisco starting October 1, 2023. This development follows an agreement between the U.S. and Chinese governments to augment the number of flights operating between the two nations.
United's Enhanced Asia Pacific Schedule
Enhancing United's Asia Pacific schedule is a significant stride in reinstating air services between the U.S. and China. This move is anticipated to meet the current market demand, especially given the existing limitations on nonstop services to China from United's mid-continent hubs or the East Coast due to Russian overflight restrictions.
Patrick Quayle, the Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances at United, expressed gratitude for the collaborative efforts of officials from both countries in facilitating this positive development. He noted that the daily services to Beijing and Shanghai from San Francisco align with the existing market demand, offering a timely solution to the restricted nonstop services arising from Russian overflight constraints.
Travelers can book flights to Shanghai through the United website and the United app. The schedule for the Beijing route is expected to be updated within the next week, offering customers the convenience of planning their travel accordingly.Advertising
