United Continental To Offer Hong Kong-Tokyo Service

United Continental Holdings has that announced it will launch a daily service between Hong Kong and Tokyo Narita from October 31, 2011.

The flight will depart Hong Kong International Airport at 10:30, arriving in Tokyo at 15:40. The return leg will depart Tokyo at 17:05, arriving back in Hong Kong at 21:15.

The new service will be operated with two-class Boeing B737-800 aircraft, offering passengers a total of 155 seats — 14 in business class and 141 in economy class.

United Airlines had previously served this route — before the merger with Continental — but dropped it a few years ago due to lack of landing slots at Tokyo Narita.
