Singapore Airlines adds Seattle route, its fifth US connection

Seattle will become the fifth US city in Singapore Airlines’ route network – and the fourth to be served non-stop from Singapore – when new flights are introduced next year.

The non-stop Singapore Changi Airport to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport flights are due to be launched on 3 September 2019 and will initially be operated three times per week before increasing to four times per week in October 2019. Airbus A350-900 aircraft will be used on the route.

Singapore Airlines chief executive officer, Goh Choon Phong said: “Our new non-stop flights to Seattle are another demonstration of our commitment to expand our operations in the important US market and grow our network reach.

“The new services will also further strengthen the Singapore hub by providing customers faster and more convenient connectivity from key markets such as Southeast Asia, South Asia and Australasia to North America.”

The new Seattle flights will add to Singapore Airlines’ existing services to the US cities of Houston, Los Angeles, New York (both JFK and Newark airports) and San Francisco.

Singapore Airlines recently introduced daily non-stop flights between Singapore and New York (Newark) and from tomorrow will fly non-stop between Singapore and Los Angeles using Airbus A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range) aircraft. Existing non-stop services to San Francisco will also be increased from seven to 10 flights per week with effect from 28 November 2018.

Singapore Airlines will operate 53 flights per week to the US by December 2018, including 27 non-stop Singapore-US services. With the introduction of the new Seattle flights next year, total US frequency will increase to 57 flights per week.
