United, First to Add New Transpacific Destination Post Pandemic

Read Time:49 Seconds

Jun 8. United Airlines announced it would become the first carrier in the United States to add a new transpacific destination to its global network since the start of the pandemic when it launches year-round, nonstop service between San Francisco and Brisbane in October.

United’s new Brisbane service will operate three times weekly on a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft that includes 48 United Polaris business class seats, 21 United Premium Plus seats, 39 Economy Plus seats and 149 economy seats.

“With United’s strong history in Australia, and now with a great partner in Virgin Australia, it’s the ideal time for United to expand service to Brisbane as demand for travel continues to grow,” United senior vice president Patrick Quayle said.

The airline currently operates nonstop flights to Sydney from San Francisco and Los Angeles and between Melbourne and the U.S. United was the only carrier to maintain passenger service between Australia and America during the pandemic.
