NON-STOP SAN FRANCISCO TO SINGAPORE NOW A REALITY
Most travelers love flying non-stop, especially when destinations are far apart. Now, United Airlines is getting major kudos for having just created the first non-stop flight between San Francisco International Airport and Singapore Changi Airport. It’s not only the first non-stop service, but it’s the only non-stop service to the U.S. from Singapore.
The new service will be the longest scheduled 787 flight operated by an airline and the longest scheduled flight operated by any U.S. carrier. It’s 8,446 miles, to be exact.
Here’s how it’ll work. Arriving flights will leave San Francisco at 11:25 p.m. every day, and will arrive in Singapore at 6:45 a.m. two days later, on local time. Return flights will leave Singapore at 8:45 a.m. daily, arriving in San Francisco at 9:15 a.m. the same day. Depending on which way you’re traveling, the total time of the flight will range from 15 hours and 30 minutes to 16 hours and 20 minutes. United says passengers will save up to four hours flying each way compared to the existing service that currently has a layover.
Look for the new nonstop flights to start June 1, 2016.
