United Airlines makes seats available for sale on new flights to Chengdu, China

Nonstop service from San Francisco is the first by a U.S. carrier to mainland China beyond Beijing, Shanghai.

CHICAGO – United Airlines has made seats available for sale on its new nonstop flights to Chengdu, China. The airline intends to operate three-times-weekly service from its San Francisco hub beginning June 9, 2014, subject to government approval, using Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

The flights will depart San Francisco International Airport at 1:35 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and arrive at Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport at 6:50 p.m. the following day (all times local). Service from Chengdu will depart at 10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and arrive at San Francisco International Airport at 8:50 a.m. the same day. Flying times will be approximately 14 hours, 15 minutes westbound and 13 hours, 50 minutes eastbound. This new nonstop flight will shave nearly four hours off the typical travel time between the two cities.

Chengdu will be the ninth destination United serves in the Asia/Pacific region nonstop from its premier San Francisco gateway, from which the airline offers more nonstop trans-Pacific flights from the United States than any other carrier – nearly twice as many as any airline from any West Coast city. From San Francisco, United provides access to more than 300 destinations worldwide, with nonstop service to 80 destinations on five continents – more than any other carrier.

Additionally, United operates more nonstop U.S.-China flights, and to more cities in China, than any other airline.
