Thank you United Airlines! Corporate Summer Joint Meeting Sponsor

In June United Airlines launched new nonstop service linking their San Francisco hub with Chengdu, China, the fourth-largest Chinese city, becoming the first carrier to fly nonstop from the U.S. to mainland China beyond Beijing and Shanghai and the first U.S. carrier to serve Chengdu. "United offers travelers more choices to more of the world than any other airline and we're proud to expand our global reach with the first trans-Pacific service to Chengdu," said Dave Hilfman, our senior vice president of worldwide sales. "With more than 250 of the Fortune 500 companies located in the area, and as home to the giant panda and Sichuan cuisine, Chengdu will be a popular destination for both business and leisure travelers." They will use the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner to operate the three-times-weekly service. Chengdu is the ninth destination they serve in the Asia/Pacific region nonstop from San Francisco, from which they offer more nonstop trans-Pacific flights from the United States than any other carrier.
