United Airlines will be resuming daily flights to China’s mainland in fall of 2023. The airline will resume daily flights between San Francisco and Beijing in November and will increase flights to Shanghai with daily flights from San Francisco, starting in October.
“We are grateful for this positive step forward in U.S. – China passenger air services, and we thank the many officials from both countries who partnered to make this reinstatement of air service possible,” said Patrick Quayle, senior vice president of Global Network Planning and Alliances. “This announcement is good news for United customers because we believe that a daily flight to Beijing and a daily flight to Shanghai from San Francisco is consistent with the demand we see in the market right now – especially since our ability to serve China nonstop from our mid-continent hubs or the East Coast is severely limited by Russian overflight restrictions.”
Shanghai and Beijing flights are currently available on United.com and on the United app.
