United Airlines (UAL) inaugurated its nonstop Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner service from Singapore (SIN) to its hub at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). United is the only airline operating a direct flight between Singapore and Los Angeles.

Celebrating the launch, passengers of the inaugural flight were greeted by iconic Hollywood celebrity impersonators and invited to participate in a cake-cutting ceremony. The celebration was attended by guests including Mr. Lee Seow Hiang, the CEO of Changi Airport Group, and Ms. Stephanie Syptak-Ramnath, the Chargé d’affaires, a.i., at the U.S. Embassy in Singapore.

Marcel Fuchs, United’s Vice President of Atlantic and Pacific Sales, said: “United is proud to launch the long-awaited Singapore-Los Angeles route for our customers in Singapore. The addition of this new exclusive service to our existing daily Singapore-San Francisco nonstop service gives more options for our customers to conveniently connect to our extensive U.S. network over both gateways.”

Singapore-Los Angeles Flight Schedule

Flight UA 38 will depart Singapore’s Changi Airport at 11:00 a.m. daily, arriving at Los Angeles International Airport at 11:15 a.m. the same day. The return flight, UA 37, will depart Los Angeles at 9:25 p.m. daily, arriving in Singapore at 6:20 a.m. two days later (all times local). Flying time will be approximately 15 hours, 15 minutes eastbound, and 17 hours, 55 minutes westbound.

Customers flying United’s service between Singapore and Los Angeles will be able to save up to nearly two hours journey time each way, compared with the current United schedule via San Francisco.

Convenient Connecting Flights at Los Angeles

United has timed arrival to Los Angeles from Singapore to provide optimal connections to more than 20 U.S. cities. From its Los Angeles hub, United operates more than 130 flights to over 40 airports across the U.S., including more seats to top business centers in New York, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Houston and Washington, D.C. than any other airline.

Onboard Products and Services Between Singapore and Los Angeles

United’s 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, equipped with satellite Wi-Fi, features a total of 252 seats – 48 United Polaris business class, 204 United Economy, including 88 Economy Plus. United Polaris business class, a reinvention of the airline’s international premium cabin travel experience, offers elevated comfort and service for a restful night’s sleep in the air.

United Economy offers complimentary food, soft drinks, juices, beer and wine, tea, coffee and inflight entertainment. Seats feature an adjustable headrest and seat-back monitor delivering a personal on-demand entertainment system. United Economy Plus offers up to five inches of extra legroom. Located near the front of the Economy cabin, the seats give the added benefit of allowing a swifter exit from the plane upon arrival.

United has served Singapore for more than 30 years and today operates daily nonstop service between Singapore and San Francisco with Boeing 787-9 aircraft. In addition, Singapore customers may choose to fly to Tokyo/Narita on ANA, United’s trans-Pacific joint venture partner, and to make connections at Tokyo/Narita to U.S. cities on multiple flights operated both by United and ANA.

United in Los Angeles

United’s hub at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is a key gateway offering service to Latin America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the domestic U.S. network. Over the last two years, United has invested more than $570 million in its Los Angeles hub with renovations designed to add greater convenience and comfort. As a result of this investment, customers are enjoying new state-of-the-art ticketing lobby, gate and bag areas, employee areas, and a brand new United Club  lounge.

From Los Angeles, United operates daily nonstop service to four Asia Pacific destinations including Melbourne (MEL), Tokyo/Narita (NRT), Shanghai (PVG) and Sydney (SYD) and serves more Hawaiian Islands locations non-stop than any other airline.
