United Airlines resumed service from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) in March. Now, United is hoping to return to pre-pandemic levels with two daily flights.

Flights to Hong Kong will increase to 12x weekly in August with twice daily service beginning on October 25th. The flights will both be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with 350 seats including 60 in Polaris, 24 in Premium Plus, and 266 in Economy.

Walter Dias, United’s Regional Director of Greater China, Korea, and Southeast Asia Sales, said:

United returned to the Hong Kong market just two months ago after a pause of nearly three years, and we are excited to announce that we will be adding more flights between Hong Kong and San Francisco this August.”

Before the pandemic, United flew from Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) as well as Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). I was fortunate to fly both routes and would love for one or both to return.

Anthony’s Take: Hong Kong is one of my favorite cities in the world and I hope to return soon. United increasing its frequency from SFO makes it easier for a one-stop flight. I’d love the nonstop from ORD to return, but I’m not counting on that any time soon.
