United Airlines Launches Road Show in China

United Airlines (UAL) began its first "Nationwide Road Show 2002" in China Monday. The move aims to introduce UAL's air services to an increasing number of Chinese customers.

The month-long road show will start in Beijing, move on to other major Chinese cities including Shenyang, Guangzhou, Fuzhou, Shanghai, Chengdu and will end in Xi'an.

"China's entry into WTO and its sustained economic growth have brought more opportunities to both Chinese and foreign businesses and created enormous opportunities for international air services," says Sidney Kwok, General Manager, of United Airlines, China.

With a long-term commitment to China, United Airlines will continue its efforts to improve its service to Chinese passengers, which now includes daily non-stop flights and fast travel to the US, Sidney Kwok said.

United Airlines began operating in China in 1986 and now offers 42 weekly flights between China and the United States.
