United Cargo opens Chengdu service

UNITED CARGO has launched new non-stop belly cargo services between its San Francisco hub and Chengdu, China.
A three-times weekly B787 is the first aircraft from a US airline to operate into China’s fourth largest city.
It is also the first non-stop service by any airline between the USA and mainland China beyond Beijing and Shanghai.
Chengdu’s emergence as a hi-tech manufacturing centre makes it one of China’s fastest-developing cities economically, and more than half of the Fortune 500 companies have a presence in the city, says a United Cargo statrement.
Chengdu is the ninth destination in the AsiaPacific region served by United with non-stop flights to and from San Francisco.
