Tomorrow, Singapore Airlines will launch its newest nonstop route from Singapore to Seattle, Washington. The airline will use the Airbus A350-900 aircraft that offers 42 seats in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy Class and 187 seats in Economy.
The new flight from Singapore to Seattle will take just under 16 hours, while the return flight will take around 14 hours and 40 minutes. Depending on wind speeds, the flight may be as short as 14 hours or as long as 16 hours. Flight number SQ028 will leave Singapore at 9:25am and arrive the same day at 9:05am. It will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Return flights will leave Seattle at 10:40am and arrive in Singapore at 5:30pm, the next day. The flight will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Beginning October, Singapore Airlines will boost the nonstop Singapore-Seattle service to four times weekly. For both sectors, the carrier will add an additional service on Sundays.
Flights from Seattle to Singapore will be well-timed and offer the chance for travelers to get to other Southeast Asian destinations such as Bali, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore, Manila and Phuket. Furthermore, those looking to get to Western Australia can get to Perth via Singapore. This will be the fastest service between Seattle and Perth. Singapore Airlines is a partner with Alaska Airlines, so those flying to Seattle will be able to connect in Seattle to fly to other airports in the United States.
Currently, Singapore Airlines offers non-stop flights to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Newark, and flights with one stop to Houston and New York's JFK. With the long-range Airbus A350-900, the airline could, in the future, offer more non-stop routes from Singapore to the United States.
