June 4, 2018 : Singapore Airlines (SIA) intends to launch non-stop services to Los Angeles "quite soon", said its chief executive officer Goh Choon Phong on Monday. The airline earlier said that it plans to start flying non-stop to Newark - near New York --in October.
Travelers can also expect more non-stop flights to other United States destinations, Mr Goh said. SIA will operate the non-stop flights to Newark Liberty International Airport and LA with its new Airbus A350-900ULR ultra-long-range aircraft.
With seven of the planes coming by the end of March 2019, the airline will have to look for more points in the US to fly to, Mr Goh said. "Seven aircraft is probably more than what is needed for New York and LA," he added.
