United Airlines revealed that Apple has purchased 50 seats a day in the business class on flights from San Francisco airport to Shanghai. The company also confirmed that Apple is one of the company’s most important customers now.
United Airlines indicate that Apple annually approves $ 35 million for seats booked on business class flights between San Francisco and Shanghai, one of the most important flights that Apple buys annually.
Apple’s interest in booking these flights annually is due to the fact that there are many Apple suppliers in China, requiring many staff to travel on the flights throughout the year.
There are also flights to other destinations that Apple is also interested in buying, including Shanghai (PVG), Hong Kong (HKG), Taipei (TPE), London (LHR), South Korea (ICN), Singapore (SIN), Munich (MUC), Tokyo (HND), Beijing (PEK).
Francisco International Airport is also the nearest airport to Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. United’s flights are also expected to be part of Apple’s flights.
Apple already has several other locations around the world, so it may exceed Apple’s annual spending on flights.
