United begins Nonstop Service between San Francisco and Nagoya, Japan

Travel News Asia 24 March 2005

United Airlines is to begin nonstop daily service on Saturday, March 26, from San Francisco International Airport to the new Central Japan International Airport near Nagoya, Japan. 

Uniteds new Nagoya service begins just in time to bring travelers to the 2005 World Exposition Aichi, near Nagoya, said Graham Atkinson, Uniteds senior vice president of Worldwide Sales and Alliances. It also is the most efficient service for business travelers to move between the western half of the United States and the industrial center of Japan. For travelers in Nagoya bound for points throughout the United States, the new and efficient San Francisco international terminal is the ideal U.S. starting point for connections.

The Consul General of Japan in San Francisco Mr. Makoto Yamanaka said, I am delighted to witness the inauguration of direct trans-Pacific flights on United Airlines between San Francisco and Nagoya, located in the heart of Japan. I hope many people will take advantage of this new route to visit Japan and enjoy the 2005 World Expo in Aichi Prefecture.

United Flight 831 will depart San Francisco at 11:55 a.m. on March 26, 2005, and arrive in Nagoya the following day at 4:40 p.m. From Nagoya, Flight 830 will depart at 3:55 p.m. on March 28, and arrive in San Francisco the same day at 8:25 a.m. (flight times are subject to change). United will operate the combined passenger and cargo flights with a Boeing 777 aircraft that seats 258 passengers: 12 in United First, 49 in United Business and 197 in United Economy, including more than 80 Economy Plus seats.
