United’s new daily nonstop service between San Francisco and Nagoya is
scheduled to begin on March 26, 2005, and will be operated with the
state-of- the-art, cargo-friendly Boeing 777 aircraft. The new service
represents an exciting expansion of United’s U.S.-Japan network. Because
of United’s code- share agreement with Star Alliance partner All Nippon
Airways (and regional carriers Air Nippon and Nakanihon), the Nagoya
service will enable United to serve more destinations throughout Japan,
with convenient domestic and international connections from Nagoya’s brand
new Central Japan International Airport (opening Feb. 18, 2005). Other
Japanese cities made accessible by these partnerships include *censored*uoka,
Sendai and Sapporo—all open for sale now on service beginning April 1,
2005—and Niigata, Nagasaki and Kagoshima—open for sale Feb. 17, 2005
for service beginning April 1, 2005. Additional cities will be served in
the future.

United’s inaugural Nagoya service also coincides with the opening of the
2005 Aichi World Expo on March 25, 2005, which is expected to bring
increased international passenger traffic to the region.
