United Airlines said Sunday it would restart non-stop service to China between San Francisco and Shanghai.

The airline had suspended its flights to China amidst the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic earlier in the year.

The flights will no longer stop in Seoul for a crew change.

“We look forward to resuming nonstop service and offering our customers greater convenience and shorter flight times,” said Patrick Quayle, the airline’s vice president for international network and alliances.

The service will operate four times per week on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and start on October 21, 2020. Return flights will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

United will operate the flights using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft that seats a total of 350 passengers in three distinct cabins.  The 777 features 60 Polaris business-class seats that 22” in width and extend into a bed that is 78” in length.  The Premium Plus premium-economy section seats 24 and offers recliner seats that are 18.5” in width and have a seat pitch of 38”.
