Singapore Airlines has announced a new route between Singapore and Seattle. Subject to regulatory approvals, SIA’s new service will be its fourth US connection to be served non-stop from Singapore and the fifth US city in the airline’s network.
Airbus A350-900 aircraft will be used on the route to Seattle. The service will be launched in September 2019 and initially be operated three times a week, before increasing to four times per week in October 2019.
With the introduction of the new Seattle flights next year, Singapore Airlines’ total US frequency will increase to 57 flights per week.
The new connection joins the existing services to the US cities Houston, Los Angeles, New York JFK and San Francisco. Furthermore, Singapore Airlines recently introduced daily non-stop flights between Singapore and New York (Newark).
On November 2, the airline will start its non-stop service between Singapore and Los Angeles. The route will be operated by Airbus A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range) aircraft, as the distance is too long for the regular A350-900.
