Operated by the carrier’s new, ultra-long range Airbus A350-900ULR aircraft, the flights will launch on November 2, flying on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
The Singapore flag carrier has confirmed details for its upcoming nonstop flights to Los Angeles, set to be operated by its new, ultra-long range Airbus A350-900ULR aircraft.
The first of its flights are scheduled to take off this November. Initially, flight SQ38 from Singapore to Los Angeles will operate thrice weekly from November 2, flying on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Come November 9, the service will be daily once the airline takes delivery of an additional aircraft. The flights will be further boosted to 10 times per week on December 7, with the introduction of a thrice-weekly flight operating as SQ36.
Along with the announcement of the Los Angeles route, Singapore Airlines has also revealed that it expects to increase its existing nonstop flights between Singapore and San Francisco from once per day to 10 times per week from November 28 onward. Operating as SQ34, the three additional weekly flights from Singapore to San Francisco will also be serviced by the A350-900ULR.
Back in May, the carrier announced its plans to launch nonstop flights to Los Angeles, as well as nonstop flights between Singapore and New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport in October. The latter is set to be a record-breaking flight route, being the longest in Singapore Airlines’ network when it is launched. It will cover a distance of about16,700 kilometers, taking up to 18 hours and 45 minutes.
