SIA to launch non-stop Singapore-San Francisco flight in October This is SIA’s first non-stop flight to the United States since 2013, when the airline cancelled its non-stop service from Singapore to Los Angeles and New York. . SINGAPORE: Flagship carrier Singapore Airlines (SIA) will launch non-stop flights between Singapore and San Francisco on Oct 23, cutting up to four hours from the travelling time, the airline announced on Thursday (Jun 16). This will be SIA’s first non-stop flight to the United States since 2013, when the airline cancelled its non-stop services from Singapore to Los Angeles and New York. The airline currently operates two daily flights between Singapore and San Francisco, with one stopping at Seoul and the other in Hong Kong. Earlier this month, United Airlines launched a non-stop Singapore-San Francisco service – currently the only non-stop flight between Singapore and the US. The flights will use SIA’s latest A350-900 aircraft. There will be 253 seats in Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class. Flying time for the new Singapore-San Francisco service will range from 14 hours and 35 minutes to 17 hours and 45 minutes depending on direction and time of year – shaving up to four hours off the travelling time between the two cities. This will be the longest flight in SIA’s network until 2018, when a new variant of the A350-900 will enter service, enabling longer flights between Singapore and both Los Angeles and New York, the airline said. SIA also said on Thursday that it will add a second daily flight between Singapore and Los Angeles on Oct 23. The flight will stop in Seoul’s Incheon airport. “Our customers have been asking us to offer more US services and we are pleased to be able to do so. With new non-stop San Francisco flights and the increase in frequency to Los Angeles, customers will have two flights to choose from each day to both of these popular US West Coast destinations,” said Ms Lee Wen Fen, SIA’s Senior Vice-President of Marketing Planning. Changi Airport on Thursday welcomed SIA's expansion of its US operations. "These exciting developments widen our passengers’ options to access two of the most vibrant cities in the United States and augment Changi Airport's position as the preferred gateway between Southeast Asia and the US," said Mr Lim Ching Kiat, Changi Airport Group's Senior Vice-President of Market Development. He also said Singapore has the strongest connectivity to the US in terms of flight frequencies and city links within Southeast Asia. Following the move by SIA, Singapore will be connected to six cities in the US via 61 weekly services. Mr Lim added: "The advent of new aircraft technology has opened up exciting growth potential for US routes, a key long-haul market that CAG has been actively cultivating. We look forward to SIA’s plans to launch more non-stop flights to other US cities. We will also continue to work with our airline partners to leverage the new opportunities in this market.” Meanwhile, SIA said it will suspend services to Sao Paulo in Brazil from Oct 20, as a result of the "sustained weak performance of the route". The airline operates three weekly flights to Sao Paulo via Barcelona. However, services between Singapore and Barcelona will continue, it added. - CNA/cy/xk
