Beginning Dec. 3 and continuing to Feb. 15, 2022, Singapore Airlines (SIA) will operate four-times weekly seasonal services to Singapore from Seattle and Vancouver.
With the inclusion of Canada and the United States under Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) arrangements, SIA will operate twice-weekly Seattle-Vancouver-Singapore designated VTL flights, providing eligible customers quarantine-free entry to Singapore.
SQ29 will depart from Seattle at 1100hrs, arrive at Vancouver at 1145hrs on the same day, depart from Vancouver at 1315hrs, and arrive in Singapore at 2205hrs the following day. Customers who fly on SQ29 must ensure that they meet all applicable VTL eligibility criteria.
Flight SQ28 will depart from Singapore at 0915hrs, arrive at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) at 0730hrs, and depart Vancouver at 0840hrs before arriving at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) at 0930hrs.
SIA will also operate SQ27, a twice-weekly Seattle-Vancouver-Singapore service that is not a designated VTL flight. This would cater to customers who are ineligible to enter Singapore under the VTL arrangement.
SIA will deploy the 253-seater Airbus A350-900 aircraft, which is fitted with 42 Business Class seats, 24 Premium Economy Class seats and 187 Economy Class seats, on this service.
JoAnn Tan, senior vice president marketing planning for Singapore Airlines, said: “This new service offers customers even more travel options to Singapore during the year-end holiday season. With the inclusion of Canada and the United States in Singapore’s VTL arrangements, we look forward to welcoming on board eligible SIA customers who can now enjoy quarantine-free travel to Singapore on the designated flights.”
Tickets will be progressively made available for sale through the various distribution channels beginning Oct 12, 2021.
SIA operates year-round services to Singapore from Los Angeles, New York (JFK), and San Francisco.
