United Airlines to launch San Francisco-Haneda flights


United Airlines is to launch daily nonstop flights between San Francisco and Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, effective Oct 26, subject to government approval.

Haneda Airport will be the 10th trans-Pacific destination that United serves nonstop from San Francisco, and the third new Asia-Pacific airport – also including Taipei and Chengdu – for United this year.

“We are excited about adding Haneda Airport to our global route network,” said Jim Compton, United’s vice chairman and chief revenue officer. “By providing nonstop service from our San Francisco hub to both Tokyo airports, we will maximize choice and convenience for customers traveling from across the Americas to Tokyo, and to points beyond on our joint-venture partner ANA.”

Flight 875 will depart San Francisco International Airport daily at 18:35, arriving at Haneda Airport at 22:05 the following day (all times local).

On the return, flight 876 will depart Haneda daily at 00:05, arriving in San Francisco at 17:15 the previous day, after crossing the International Date Line.

Flying times will be approximately 11 hours, 30 minutes westbound and 9 hours, 10 minutes eastbound.

Effective Nov 2, San Francisco arrival and departure times will be one hour earlier due to the end of daylight saving time.

The flight schedules enable customers to use convenient public transportation between Haneda Airport and central Tokyo and Yokohama.

With the introduction of the San Francisco – Tokyo/Haneda service, United will operate once-daily service between San Francisco and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, rather than the twice-daily service currently offered. The airline also operates daily service to Tokyo/Narita from its hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and Washington.

Connecting Flights

United customers traveling on the new Haneda flights will be able to make one-stop connections at the San Francisco hub to and from 28 cities throughout North America and beyond.

In addition, the new service will provide connections at Haneda on the extensive network of United’s joint-venture partner ANA to other international destinations, including Bangkok and Singapore.

that arrival time into haneda is pretty late. it'll take you about an hour to pass through immigration, collect bags and clear customs. so you're looking at leaving the airport around 11 p.m. to try to get home. thanks but no thanks.

@rickyvee It's not for everyone, but for many who live near their station, just take a limousine bus from Haneda and it'll drop you off right near your home.
