We reduce travel to China

As the demand for travel to China continues to decline, we have decided to temporarily reduce service between our hub airport cities and Beijing (PEK), Hong Kong (HKG) and Shanghai (PVG). This reduction of service — beginning February 9 and running through March 28 — includes 332 additional roundtrip cancellations, reducing our 12 daily departures from the United States to mainland China and Hong Kong to four daily departures. There are no planned travel reductions to Chengdu (CTU) at this time.

We continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will adjust our schedule as needed. For those traveling to the impacted areas, please check united.com for important travel information as well as current travel waivers.
