United Airlines Launches Thrice Weekly San Francisco - Hangzhou Flights

United Airlines has launched flights between San Francisco and Hangzhou, China.

 United will operate the thrice weekly nonstop flights with the Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

UA 982 will depart San Francisco at 14:20 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and arrive in Hangzhou at 18:10 the following day. The flight time will be 12 hours and 55 minutes westbound.

 The return flight, UA 983, will depart Hangzhou at 10:55 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and arrive at San Francisco at 07:50 the same days. The flight time will be 11 hours and 55 minutes eastbound.

The Hangzhou service is a great addition to our growing portfolio of mainland China destinations, including three interior cities that no other airline serves from the United States, said Marcel Fuchs, United's Vice President of Atlantic and Pacific Sales. This new route provides U.S. travelers with convenient access to one of Chinas most dynamic cities, while giving Chinese travelers direct access to Uniteds premier San Francisco gateway with options for onward connections to our extensive network of service throughout the U.S., Canada and Latin America.

Hangzhou, selected to host the 2016 G20 Summit in September, is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites - West Lake and the Great Canal.
