SIA details 'Ultra' plans

Non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles using the new Airbus A350-900ULR are being launched by Singapore Airlines (SIA) in November. The airline is also increasing its existing daily non-stop Singapore – San Francisco services to 10 a week.

Together with the non-stop Singapore – New York services announced earlier (BTN 11 June), it means SIA will link Singapore and the US with 27 weekly non-stops by the end of this year.

Singapore – Los Angeles will begin on 2 November, served initially three times a week, with daily operations from 9 November 2018 after an additional A350-900ULR enters service.

From 7 December, a further three services a week will be added, lifting total non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles to 10 times per week. SIA’s one-stop service to Los Angeles via Seoul ends after 30 November.

SIA is also increasing frequency on the Singapore – San Francisco route with three more weekly flights from 28 November. Together with the current daily one-stop service via Hong Kong, San Francisco will also be served 17 times a week.

CEO Goh Choon Phong said: “Our US services have always been popular with our customers and we are pleased to be able to provide even more travel options as SIA becomes the first airline in the world to operate the A350-900ULR.”
