For those wanting a nonstop trip to an island getaway, United Airlines can make your wish a reality with nonstop flights from San Francisco to the island of Tahiti.
On Oct. 30, 2018, United launched its first nonstop flight between the locations. It’s the only mainland U.S. carrier that offers the nonstop service, which is available year-round.
Currently, the service is set for Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Beginning on March 30, 2019, the flight days will be Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The flight time is between eight and nine hours.
