Singapore Airlines to reintroduce non-stop flights to Los Angeles, increases capacity to North America

Singapore Airlines has announced the resumption of non-stop services to Los Angeles, starting from 2 Nov 2018. If you can recall, the airline used to operate non-stop flights to Los Angeles using the A340-500 aircraft, which proved to be uneconomical for the route. However, with the introduction of the A350-900ULR variant to the fleet, it is now more economically viable to fly non-stop between the two cities.

Here are the non-stop flights operating between Singapore and Los Angeles:


Do note that this is in addition to the current SQ12/11 flights between the two cities, with a stop in Tokyo (Narita).

In addition to the above, Singapore Airlines will increase the number of non-stop flights between Singapore and San Francisco:


Do note that this is in addition to the current SQ2/1, with a stop in Hong Kong, and SQ32/31, which is also a non-stop service between the two cities.

With these changes, Singapore Airlines will soon operate 17 weekly services to Los Angeles, and 17 weekly services to San Francisco as well.

From my understanding, Singapore Airlines is currently in the process of re-accommodating passengers (myself included) on the affected SQ8/7 flights to other flights as per the new schedule.


The A350-900ULR will be fitted with only Business and Premium Economy Classes, providing unparalleled comfort for its non-stop services between Singapore and Los Angeles/San Francisco. The first A350-900ULR will be delivered to Singapore Airlines in September, in time for its inaugural flight to Newark in October.
