United Marks 30 Years Since Pan Am Deal Added 10 Asia Pacific Routes

It’s been 30 years since United made a $700 million+ deal with Pan Am to acquire 10 Asia Pacific routes. Prior to the deal, Pan Am’s only Pacific routes were Seattle – Hong Kong and Seattle – Tokyo. The deal added the following routes all at once:

  • Auckland
  • Beijing
  • Manila
  • Melbourne
  • Osaka
  • Seoul
  • Shanghai
  • Singapore
  • Sydney
  • Taipei

Many of these still operate today as United celebrates the anniversary.
