SIA to launch non-stop flights between S'pore and San Francisco, 2nd daily Los Angeles service
Date: 16/06/16

SINGAPORE — Starting Oct 23 this year, Singapore Airlines (SIA) will have daily flights between Singapore to San Francisco, the national carrier announced on Thursday (June 16).

The flights will be on SIA's latest A350-900 planes and will be the longest flights in SIA’s network until 2018 — when a new variant of the A350-900 will enter service, enabling even longer flights between Singapore and both Los Angeles and New York.

The A350-900 is able to operate non-stop San Francisco flights on a year-round basis, although there may be some payload restrictions due to headwinds, which will result in some seats not being offered for sale, said the airline.
