United Airlines has launched nonstop flights linking the airline’s San Francisco hub with Chengdu, China, the fourth-largest Chinese city.

United will use the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner to operate the three-times-weekly service.

 Chengdu is the ninth destination United serves in the Asia/Pacific region nonstop from San Francisco, from which United offers more nonstop trans-Pacific flights from the United States than any other carrier.

“United offers travelers more choices to more of the world than any other airline and we’re proud to expand our global reach with the first trans-Pacific service to Chengdu,” said Dave Hilfman, United’s senior vice president of worldwide sales. “With more than 250 of the Fortune 500 companies located in the area, and as home to the giant panda and Sichuan cuisine, Chengdu will be a popular destination for both business and leisure travelers.”

Flight 9 will depart San Francisco International Airport at 13:25 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and arrive at Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport at 18:40 the following day (all times local).

Flight 8 will depart at 09:50 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and arrive at San Francisco International Airport at 08:40 the same day.

Flying times will be approximately 14 hours, 15 minutes westbound and 13 hours, 50 minutes eastbound.
