United Airlines resumes nonstop flights between Hong Kong and San Francisco

United Airlines (UAL) resumed its first nonstop service to and from Hong Kong on March 6, 2023, marking the airline’s first passenger flight service out of the city since the start of the pandemic.
United’s daily nonstop service from Hong Kong (HKG) to San Francisco (SFO) directly connects Hong Kong travelers to the airline’s largest hub airport on the U.S. West Coast, and numerous cities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Latin America vis its hub.

On March 6 at the departure gate of United flight UA862 at the Hong Kong International Airport, Walter Dias, regional director of Sales for Greater China and Southeast Asia, and Consul General Gregory May of the U.S. Consulate celebrated the return of the San Francisco nonstop service to Hong Kong by making remarks before passengers boarded the flight.

Walter Dias, United’s regional director of sales for Greater China, Korea and Southeast Asia, said, “This year United is celebrating its 40th anniversary in Hong Kong and we’re thrilled to be able to return to this important market. We very much look forward to welcoming Hong Kong customers on our HKG-SFO service again. Customers traveling from Hong Kong to the U.S. will find convenient, easy connections at our San Francisco hub to more than 70 destinations in the mainland U.S., Canada and Latin America. We also look forward to bringing our loyal customers in North America to the vibrant city of Hong Kong!”

Consul Gregory May of the U.S. Consulate said, “We see the relaunch of United Airlines’ non-stop service to San Francisco as a tremendous step forward in the recovery of U.S. airline service to Hong Kong after a challenging three years. In the months ahead, we are eager to welcome more visitors from Hong Kong and connect passengers from across the Asia Pacific region to the United States.”

United reaffirmed its commitment to the Hong Kong market where the airline is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

Flight UA862 will leave HKG daily at 12:20 p.m. and will arrive in SFO at 8:45 a.m. the same day. The return flight, UA877, will depart SFO daily at 10:40 p.m. and will arrive in HKG at 6:00 a.m. two days later. All flights will utilize the B777-300ER aircraft offering 60 seats in the United Polaris business cabin, 24 seats in the United Premium Plus cabin, and 266 seats in the United Economy cabin.

San Francisco is United’s largest hub airport on the U.S. West Coast and a gateway to Asia-Pacific. United operates more than 200 daily departures from San Francisco International Airport, taking customers to more than 100 destinations around the globe, including the most international service with flights to 26 different international cities.
