United Airlines to resume Shanghai/San Francisco flight service

United Airlines has announced that, beginning July 8, it will resume flight service to China with twice-weekly flights between San Francisco and Shanghai´s Pudong International Airport via Seoul´s Incheon International Airport, the company said.

United will operate service with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft from San Francisco to Shanghai on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Customers traveling from Shanghai will return to San Francisco on Thursdays and Sundays.

Prior to suspending service to Shanghai in February due to COVID-19, United was the largest US carrier serving China and operated five daily flights between Shanghai and its hubs in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York/Newark and has served Shanghai for more than 30 years.

United´s shared purpose is Connecting People. Uniting the World.
