Singapore Airlines will resume non-stop US service

Travel News 17 Jun 2016

Singapore Airlines will resume nonstop service between the United States and Singapore on Oct. 23 with daily flights from San Francisco.

The announcement comes just two weeks after fellow Star Alliance member United Airlinesbegan its own San Francisco-Singapore daily service. Singapore's flight, using Airbus A350-900s, will depart from San Francisco in the morning and arrive in the early evening, while United's flight departs at night and arrives in Singapore in the early morning. On the flights from Singapore to San Francisco, both carriers depart and arrive in the morning.

Singapore Airlines currently flies daily from San Francisco to Singapore via Hong Kong and from San Francisco-Singapore via Seoul. When it begins nonstop service, it will reroute the Seoul flight to originate in Los Angeles, supplementing its daily service from Los Angeles to Tokyo's Narita International Airport.

Last year, the carrier announced it would resume nonstop service between Singapore and each Los Angeles and New York in 2018 using new A350-900 Ultra-Long Range aircraft. It previously ended both those routes in 2013.

On Oct. 20, Singapore Airlines also will end service to São Paulo, to which it flies three times weekly from Singapore via Barcelona. It will continue to operate flights between Singapore and Barcelona.
