United Airlines’ Singapore (SIN) to Los Angeles (LAX) flight launches on October 29, 2017.
Considered the longest non-stop flight to the United States, the trip is reportedly two hours shorter than the usual route of at least one layover. This could bring about a lot of convenience and saved time for travelers.
This new flight will trump United’s SIN to San Francisco (SFO) flight as the longest non-stop trip. The new flight covers roughly 8,700 miles while the latter flight is around 8,400 miles.
Named Flight U38, the SIN to LAX departs at 11:00am Singapore time and arrives at LAX at 10:15 on the same day.
The return flight, UA 37, will depart Los Angeles at 8:55 p.m. daily, arriving in Singapore at 6:50 a.m. two days later. Flying time will be approximately 15 hours, 15 minutes eastbound, and 17 hours, 55 minutes westbound.
