United Airlines has announced that it will relaunch its nonstop services between San Francisco (SFO) and Hong Kong (HKG) on March 3, 2023, making it the first United passenger flight service to and from Hong Kong since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Walter Dias, United’s Regional Director of Sales for Greater China, Korea and Southeast Asia, said in a statement, “Our early-morning San Francisco arrival time and late-evening San Francisco departure time will offer more than 70 one-stop destinations in the mainland U.S., Canada and Latin America via our hub in San Francisco. We have nearly 40 years of long history in the Hong Kong market and our commitment to the market remains unchanged.”

The westbound SFO–HKG flight, UA877, will restart on March 3, 2023, but there will be no flight on March 4 for operational reasons. Then from March 5, the service will leave San Francisco at 10:40 p.m. daily to arrive in Hong Kong at 6 a.m. two days later. The return flight, UA862, will depart Hong Kong at 12:20 p.m. daily and touch down in SFO at 8:45 a.m. the same day. All flights will utilize Boeing 777-300ER aircraft offering 60 seats in the United Polaris business cabin, 24 seats in United Premium Plus, and 266 seats in the United Economy cabin.
