United Airlines resumes Taipei Taoyuan flights

On 29 March, San Francisco Airport celebrated United Airlines’ resumption of services to Taipei Taoyuan, last served in August 2008, with a ribbon cutting ceremony as well as Taiwanese performers.

On the other end of the San Francisco route, United’s inaugural flight was celebrated with Taiwanese dancers and a ribbon cutting ceremony at Taipei Taoyuan Airport. 

  • United Airlines expanded its long-haul network with a new service from San Francisco, CA (SFO) to Taipei Taoyuan (TPE) on 29 March. The Star Alliance member resumed operations on the 10,411-kilometre sector to Taipei’s main airport, after it was last served in August 2008, with daily flights, utilising its 269-seat 777-200s. United’s new route will face direct competition from EVA Air’s 12 weekly flights and China Airlines’ daily operations. Commenting on the route launch, Jim Compton, Vice Chairman, United, said: “With the most extensive route network, the broadest alliances and hubs in the largest US cities, United offers travellers more choices to more of the world than any other U.S. airline.”
