The flights to San Francisco will resume from 15th December,2020. Flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The flights will be operated using Airbus A350 aircraft.

The flight schedule is as follows:

  • Singapore-San Francisco
  • Departure time- 18:40
  • Arrival time- 17:20
  • Flight time- 14 hours and 40 minutes
  • Flight number- SQ34
  • San Francisco-Singapore
  • Departure time- 20:50
  • Arrival time- 6:25 (the next to next day)
  • Flight time- 17 hours and 35 minutes
  • Flight number- SQ33

All times are local.

Los Angeles will see increased frequencies from three weekly flights to five starting December 2, with service on all days of the week except Thursdays and Saturdays. Singapore Airlines never stopped flying the Singapore-Los Angeles route throughout the pandemic, which became its sole non-stop link to the US.

“The US is the number one market in the world, it is a market that nobody can ignore,” Joey Seow, regional vice president, the Americas, told Business Insider. “Despite the fact that passenger loads are not where we were during the pre-COVID days, we are committed to the market.”

“With the announcements by Modena and Pfizer, there has been a lot of positivity that there is light at the end of the tunnel and the market is also signaling that recovery is in sight,” Seow told Business Insider. “So from a timing perspective, the stars are aligned in that respect.”

It is great to see Singapore Airlines restoring some crucial routes to the US? What do you think? Is it a good time to resume long haul flights? Let me know in the comments section below.
