We're California's global airline for a reason

By The Hub team

We're proud to connect our California customers to the places and moments that matter, with the most international flights from the San Francisco area. But it's not just the number of flights that sets us apart — it's the overall experience. Here's how we're committed to being the best when it comes to taking you around the world.

Plenty of choices

We have more international flights out of San Francisco than any other airline by far, directly connecting the area to dozens of destinations around the world every day.

Not only do we have the most daily departures to regions like Asia and Latin America, we also easily connect the area to Europe with nonstop service to important airports such as London Heathrow and Frankfurt.

We're not done growing our network either, with new nonstop routes to exciting destinations like Tahiti and Amsterdam.

An extensive global network

We also have the best global network thanks to our Star Alliance™ partners, which can connect you to more than 1,300 destinations in 193 countries.

With Star Alliance, you'll have a seamless travel experience with our airline partners. Buying your ticket to destinations served by our Star Alliance partners, or even earning and using award miles, can be done conveniently on united.com or the United app. Eligible travelers can even access more than 1,000 Star Alliance-affiliated airport lounges around the world.

Fly in style

We back up our comprehensive global network with a stellar onboard experience. Enjoy unmatched comfort in the sky on long-haul international flights with United Polaris® service. Our United Polaris business class seats recline flat and come with luxurious amenities like Saks Fifth Avenue bedding and amenity kits with products from Soho House & Co's Cowshed Spa.

For travelers who seek comfort on their international journeys, we provide more premium cabin seating and more extra legroom seating than any other airline flying out of the San Francisco area.

Relax and recharge

We also offer premier airport facilities that add comfort to the pre- and post-flight experience.

Earlier this year, we opened our United Polaris lounge at San Francisco, exclusively for travelers in first and business class on select international flights. Travelers can relax in privacy before or after their flight, grab a bite from the buffet, sit down to eat in a private dining area or freshen up in our shower suites.

We also welcome eligible travelers to visit any of our four United Club℠ locations at San Francisco, each one featuring oversized furniture, complimentary snack and drinks, and convenient work stations.

California's global airline

The San Francisco area plays a vital role on the world stage and deserves a comprehensive global network to reflect that.

We thank our customers in the San Francisco area for choosing United, and welcome others to discover just why we're California's global airline.

CHICAGO and DES PLAINES, Ill., Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- United and Honeywell today announced a joint multimillion-dollar investment in Alder Fuels – a cleantech company that is pioneering first-of-its-kind technologies for producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale by converting abundant biomass, such as forest and crop waste, into sustainable low-carbon, drop-in replacement crude oil that can be used to produce aviation fuel. When used together across the fuel lifecycle, the Alder technologies, coupled with Honeywell's Ecofining™ process, could have the ability to produce a carbon-negative fuel at spec with today's jet fuel.
