Singapore Airlines to return to New York

Singapore Airlines has made this announcement:

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will return to New York on November 9, 2020, when it launches nonstop flights between Singapore and John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Operating to JFK International Airport would allow Singapore Airlines to better accommodate a mix of passenger and cargo traffic on its services to New York in the current operating climate. SIA’s nonstop services to New York would also be supported by the growing number of transfer passengers who can now transit via Singapore’s Changi Airport.

SIA also anticipates significant cargo demand from a range of industries based in the New York metro area, including pharmaceuticals, e-commerce and technology firms. The new service will provide the only nonstop air cargo link from the U.S. Northeast to Singapore, which serves as a regional distribution hub for many major U.S.-based companies.

The Airline will operate the Airbus A350-900 long-range aircraft on the route. This aircraft is configured with 42 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy Class and 187 Economy Class seats.

Today, SIA operates nonstop services to Los Angeles. It will continue to review its operations to the United States, and assess the growing demand for air travel amid the ongoing recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, before deciding to reinstate services to other points in the country.

Starting on November 9, 2020, SQ24 will operate three-times weekly from Singapore Changi Airport to John F. Kennedy International Airport. From November 11, 2020, SQ23 will operate thrice weekly from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Singapore Changi Airport.
