United Airlines takes off on its newest west coast route to Singapore.  The carrier is operating a Boeing 787-9 aircraft with the latest aviation features.  Flights depart SFO daily at 10:55pm arriving at Changi at 6:15am two days post departure date. 

Departing flights will leave Singapore at 8:45 am daily and arrive at SFO at 9:15 am the same day.  Estimated flying times are 16 hours, 20 minutes westbound and 15 hours, 30 minutes eastbound.

Jim Compton, United's vice chairman and chief revenue officer states:

These flights will offer our customers unique nonstop convenience when traveling to Singapore from the West Coast, with dozens of one-stop options from other cities across the Americas, including more than 26 that did not have one-stop service to Singapore before.

The new route does create schedule changes with the United network.  Effective June 2, the Tokyo/Narita eastbound flights to Singapore have terminated.

The new route is the longest scheduled 787 flight operated by any airline and the longest scheduled flight operated by any US carrier – at 8,446 miles.
