United Airlines Flies to Singapore
Residents of the Lion City, rejoice! Traveling to the West Coast is going to be easier with the launch of United Airlines’ daily direct flights to Los Angeles. The flights will start in October but are subject to the United States and Singapore governments’ approval. United will use its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner jet, which will fly for almost 18 hours and 8,700 miles, making it the longest Singapore to US flight available. United will depart LA at 8:55 p.m. and will arrive in Singapore two days later at 6:50 a.m. After the turmoil that the airline has gone through this year, it seems that they’re aiming to make a strong comeback with this flight.
Etihad Passengers To Be Considered as Domestic Travelers
All of Etihad’s Abu Dhabi to New York flights will now be served by A380-double decker jets. Previously, one of the two daily flights was served by a Boeing 777-300ER . Here’s a bonus: passengers will be considered as domestic travelers because they have already been cleared in the United Arab Emirates by the United States’ customs and immigration.
Korean Air Debuts International Flights
Starting this month, Korean Air will offer flights from Incheon to Toronto twice a day via their Dreamliner B787-9. The same plane will also serve the airline’s Incheon to Madrid and Beijing routes in August. Korean Air will also acquire 10 new eco-friendly additions to their Dreamliner fleet in order to provide more routes and the smoothest journey for their passengers.
