TAMUNING, Guam—United Airlines customers in Saipan now have more options for convenient connections through Guam this summer. United announced new twice-weekly Boeing 737-700 service between Saipan and Guam, beginning Aug. 2, 2018.
United’s new service is scheduled to depart Guam on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30pm and arrive in Saipan at 12:15am the next day. The return flight departs Saipan on Wednesdays and Fridays at 4:55am and arrives in Guam at 5:40am. United will operate Boeing 737-700 (12 seats in United Business, 36 seats in United Economy Plus and 78 seats in United Economy) aircraft between Saipan and Guam.
“We are pleased to add the new twice-weekly service between Guam and Saipan. Since we started the daily jet service between Guam and Saipan on June 1, we have seen strong demand between the islands. More importantly, by adding new twice-weekly service we are able to accommodate Saipan customers who desire to make a same-day connection to Honolulu and Japan with just one stop in Guam,” said Sam Shinohara, United’s managing director of Asia/Pacific Airport Operations.
