Home » Latest News » Airline News » Singapore Airlines To Grow Non-Stop LAX and SFO Flights with A350-900ULR

Singapore Airlines will launch non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles using the new Airbus A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range) aircraft in November. In addition, Singapore Airlines will increase existing daily non-stop Singapore to San Francisco flights to 10 times per week. Together with the earlier announced non-stop Singapore New York flights, the airline will link Singapore and the US with 27 weekly non-stop flights by the end of 2018.

Flight SQ38 from Singapore to Los Angeles will commence on the 2nd November 2018. The route will initially be served three times per week, departing Singapore on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Daily operations will commence from the 9th November 2018 after an additional A350-900ULR aircraft enters service. From the 7th December 2018, a further three services per week will be added as SQ36, lifting total non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles to 10 times per week.

With the introduction of non-stop services between Singapore and Los Angeles, Singapore Airlines’ existing one-stop service to Los Angeles via Seoul will cease after the 30th November 2018. Singapore – Seoul frequency will be maintained at four flights per day with the introduction of a new Singapore – Seoul return flight from the 1st December 2018, operating as flight SQ612. Together with Singapore Airlines’ current daily one stop service to Los Angeles via Tokyo, Los Angeles will be served 17 times per week.

Singapore Airlines will also be increasing frequency on the existing Singapore – San Francisco route with three more weekly flights, with effect from the 28th November 2018. The three additional services will operate as SQ34, departing every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday to San Francisco and will complement existing daily SQ32 non-stop services. Together with the airline’s current daily one-stop service to San Francisco via Hong Kong, San Francisco will also be served 17 times per week.

“Our US services have always been popular with our customers and we are pleased to be able to provide even more travel options with the launch of non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles, and an increase in frequency on the existing non-stop Singapore-San Francisco route,” said Singapore Airlines CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.

This ultra-long-range aircraft will be configured in a two-class layout, with 67 Business Class seats and 94 Premium Economy Class seats. Singapore Airlines’ existing A350-900 aircraft feature a three-class layout with 42 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy Class and 187 Economy Class seats.
