United Airlines Launches Four New Pacific Routes Next Week

United Airlines will launch four new Pacific routes next week, beginning with nonstop service between Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia, and between San Francisco and Tokyo's Haneda Airport, on October 26, 2014. Later in the week, the airline will also launch two new routes from its Guam hub - Seoul, South Korea, on October 27, 2014 and Shanghai on October 28, 2014. Los Angeles - Melbourne, Australia The airline will fly the Los Angeles - Melbourne route six times weekly with the new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. United is the North American launch customer for the 787-9, and this will be the carrier's first international deployment of the aircraft type. United has timed the new Melbourne flights to conveniently connect at Los Angeles with an extensive network of service throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America. With this new service, United will provide convenient one-stop service to Melbourne from more than 37 U.S. cities. United started service to Australia in 1979 and operates more flights to more destinations in Australia than any other U.S. carrier, with daily flights from its San Francisco and Los Angeles hubs to Sydney and Melbourne and twice-weekly service to Cairns from Guam. Boeing 787 Dreamliner The 787 Dreamliner is revolutionizing the flying experience for United customers and crews while delivering unprecedented operating efficiency, comfort and lower emissions. The 787-9's extended range - 8,550 miles compared to the 787-8's 8,200 - enables United to launch the Los Angeles-to-Melbourne service, which will be the longest Dreamliner route in the world to date. The Boeing 787-9 aircraft operating the new Melbourne route will feature a total of 252 seats - 48 in United Business First and 204 in United Economy, including 88 Economy Plus seats with added legroom and increased personal space. San Francisco - Tokyo/Haneda Airport New daily flights between San Francisco and Tokyo's close-in Haneda Airport complement United's existing service between the hub and Tokyo's Narita International Airport. Flights from San Francisco to both Tokyo airports maximize choice and convenience for customers traveling from across the Americas to Tokyo, and to points beyond on United's joint-venture partner ANA. The flight schedules enable customers to use convenient public transportation between Haneda Airport and central Tokyo and Yokohama. United also operates daily service to Tokyo/Narita from its hubs in Chicago, Denver, Guam, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, as well as from Honolulu. United is the largest carrier at San Francisco International Airport, offering nearly 300 daily flights to more than 90 destinations in the U.S. and around the world, more service than any other airline from the Bay Area. United's San Francisco hub also offers more nonstop trans-Pacific service than any airline hub in America. The company currently operates nearly 30 daily nonstop flights from San Francisco to more than 20 international destinations. Guam to Seoul, South Korea and Shanghai In addition, United will launch two new routes from its Guam hub at A.P. Won Pat International Airport: daily service to Seoul's Incheon International Airport beginning on October 27, 2014, and twice-weekly service to Shanghai's Pudong International Airport, the first nonstop service from Guam to mainland China, beginning on October 28, 2014.
