Chances are you’re a fan of our non-stop routes from RDU to San Francisco and Los Angeles. Both cities were among our 10 most popular destinations for 2013. If you fly, or dream of flying, non-stop from RDU to the West Coast, here’s some great news. Airlines are adding extra flights on both the LAX and SFO routes.
United’s RDU- San Francisco route is about to get even better with the addition of a second daily flight as well as new connection opportunities to Asia.
Beginning April 1 (and no, not an April Fool’s joke), you can choose both a morning and evening departure from RDU and a morning and afternoon departure from San Francisco. The new flight times are:
7 a.m. (Eastern) – 9:46 a.m. (Pacific)
6:31 p.m. – 9:24 p.m.
9:41 a.m. – 5:45 p.m.
2:36 p.m. – 10:40 p.m.
The second daily flight brings improved connections to Asia. United Airlines begins non-stop service from San Francisco to Taipei on March 29 and to Chengdu, China on June 9.
The airline is also working with government regulators to begin non-stop service from SFO- Tokyo-Haneda airport, which is located closer to downtown Tokyo than Narita Airport, which you can currently reach via SFO.
In addition, find great connections via our two non-stop San Francisco routes to:
- Hong Kong
In April, we celebrate one-year of daily non-stop service to Los Angeles via American Airlines. Take a look back at last year’s festivities. Fly daily on American Airlines:
5:25 p.m. – 8 p.m.
8:45 a.m. – 4:40 p.m.
But why stop in Los Angeles. You can easily use this route for great connections to Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. To stay a little closer to home, this RDU-LAX route offers easy connects to Monterrey, San Diego, San Jose and Sacramento.
Beginning May 8, Delta Air Lines is adding a second daily non-stop flight between RDU and Los Angeles. The new flight will provide an evening departure option as well as an overnight return flight from LAX.
7:03 a.m. – 9:39 a.m.

10:20 a.m. – 6:09 p.m.
10 p.m. – 5:47 a.m. (next day)
