SIA restarts direct flights to San Francisco

SIA has announced that as of 15 December, direct flights between Singapore and San Francisco will start again. These direct flights will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The flights are scheduled to leave Singapore Changi Airport at 18:40 and arrive at San Francisco at 17:20, approximately 14 hours and 40 minutes of flying time. It is also reported that flights between San Francisco and Nagoya, Japan, will start again in December.

The SIA Group consists of 3 groups, Singapore International Airlines (SIA), SilkAir and Scoot. Flight numbers are being increased to Manila, Perth and Kuala Lumpur operated by SIA and SilkAir. However, Scoot would be suspending their operations in that region.

On the flip side, SIA and SilkAir will be suspending their flights to Penang, Surabaya and Taipei whilst Scoot will increase their number of flights to them areas. These flights are subject to regulatory approvals but if successful, will commence between November and December 2020.

SIA commented:

The adjustment of services between SIA, SilkAir, and Scoot is the result of a detailed review to determine which airlines in the SIA Group portfolio are best suited to meet evolving customer and cargo demand.
