United Airlines begins longest scheduled flight operated by any U.S. carrier and longest scheduled Boeing Dreamliner Flight in the World

Published on : Friday, June 3, 2016

Singapore+Skyline-mediumUnited Airlines today launches the only nonstop flights between the United States and Singapore, using the world’s most advanced passenger airplane, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, to operate the service from the airline’s San Francisco Pacific-gateway hub. The nonstop flights connecting the two financial and tech centers will save travelers up to four hours’ journey time each way compared with one-stop service.

 

Measured by distance, the new route between San Francisco and Singapore is the longest scheduled 787 flight operated by any airline, and the longest scheduled flight operated by any U.S. carrier, at 8,446 miles.

 

“Our nonstop service between San Francisco and Singapore further enhances our already unprecedented trans-Pacific route network and builds an even stronger gateway to the Pacific from our San Francisco hub,” said Jim Compton, United’s vice chairman and chief revenue officer. “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.”

 

“Singapore offers a unique Asian experience where distinct cultures – Chinese, Malay, Indian & Eurasian – come together to form a rich tapestry of diverse experiences,” said Kershing Goh, regional director, Americas, Singapore Tourism Board. “Singapore is now more accessible than ever with United’s nonstop flight, and its rapid progress as an innovative and forward-looking destination will leave visitors inspired by the possibilities of what’s to come.

 

“From the moment they step off the plane, visitors will be awestruck by the futuristic cityscapes, enticed by the exotic smells of our ethnic cuisines, enchanted with the lush greenery and wowed by the unique spirit and soul of the Singaporean people. Singapore should be on every globetrotter’s list of top destinations.”
