United Airlines Applies To Fly Nonstop From San Francisco To Tokyo's Haneda Airport

CHICAGO, Oct. 18, 2013   /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines has applied to the U.S. Department of Transportation for authority to provide daily nonstop service from the airline's hub at San Francisco International Airport to Haneda Airport in downtown Tokyo. United applied for the Haneda Airport slot pair used by American Airlines for New York/JFK-Haneda service, which the carrier announced on Oct. 16, 2013, it will terminate.

United proposes to begin the new service from San Francisco in the summer of 2014, using existing aircraft in its fleet, subject to government approval.

"With these slots, United will be able to provide convenient daily nonstop flights between our trans-Pacific gateway in San Francisco and the close-in Tokyo Haneda airport," said Jim Mueller, United's vice president of Atlantic and Pacific sales. "In addition to giving customers direct access between San Francisco and Haneda, the service will also offer connecting opportunities at the San Francisco hub from cities across United's route network."

From San Francisco, United and the United Express carriers operate more than 300 daily flights to more than 90 cities in North America, Asia, Australia and Europe. With nonstop service from San Francisco to Beijing, Hong Kong, Osaka, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney and Tokyo Narita, and beginning next year to Taipei and Chengdu (subject to government approval), United's San Francisco hub serves more destinations across the Pacific with more nonstop flights from the United States than any other airline, and nearly twice as many as any other airline from the U.S. West Coast. United also operates daily nonstop flights to Tokyo Narita from Chicago, Denver, Guam, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/ Newark, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington.

The proposed San Francisco-Haneda flights will complement United's daily San Francisco-Tokyo Narita service, which will continue to operate and offer alternative time-of-day departures and arrivals, as well as options for passengers who prefer to travel to Tokyo Narita or are making connections there.
