United Airlines will officially resume flights to Hong Kong from San Francisco at the end of next May.
On May 28, 2022, the American carrier will therefore relaunch its flights to the Chinese destination knowing that it has stopped its operations on this route for two years due to the spread of the pandemic.
According to information released by Cirium, the American carrier will offer one daily flight to Hong Kong from San Francisco International Airport using its Boeing 777-200 which can accommodate 276 passengers.
