Expanding San Francisco’s International Network in 2019
This year, United started nonstop seasonal service from San Francisco to Amsterdam; and extended Auckland, New Zealand and Tahiti, French Polynesia services to year-round. The airline also began a second daily flight to Seoul, South Korea and twice-daily service to Toronto, Canada. In October, United will begin seasonal nonstop service to Melbourne, Australia and new seasonal service to New Delhi in December.
With these new routes, the airline will serve 29 international destinations from San Francisco, including eight cities in Europe, India and the Middle East; seven in North America; and 14 in Asia and Oceania. United, the largest airline at San Francisco International Airport, operates more than 300 daily flights. The network expansion cements United’s preeminent position in San Francisco, where the carrier offers more nonstop flights than any U.S. airline from San Francisco to the Asia-Pacific region and Europe. Tickets are now available for purchase.
United has been a Bay Area company for 90 years and employs 14,000 people in the Bay Area, including 2,500 at its maintenance base, which recently celebrated its 70th anniversary of operation.
