United Airlines launches longest Los Angeles connection

United Airlines’ Los Angeles to Singapore

United Airlines

Singapore Airport baked an impressive cake to welcome the arrival of United Airlines’ non-stop service from Los Angeles which launched 27 October. The carrier will operate the 14,096-kilometre link from the Californian hub daily on its 787-9s. By launching flights to Singapore, this becomes the airline’s longest route from Los Angeles.

  • United Airlines launched its longest route from Los Angeles (LAX) on 27 October, a 14,096-kilometre link to Singapore (SIN), beating the airline’s current route to Melbourne from the Californian hub which has a sector length of 12,751 kilometres. Flown on the Star Alliance member’s 787-9s with a daily rotation, this becomes United’s second non-stop route to Singapore from the US after San Francisco. Another long-haul sector launched by United this week is the 8,541-kilometre link from New York Newark (EWR) to Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE), a route that will be served by carrier’s fleet of 767-400s when referring to OAG schedules. Launched on 28 October, the daily connection from Newark down to Argentina will face no direct competition, with the airline’s new US-Asia service also not facing any incumbents. It should be noted that United already offers daily flights to Ezeiza from Houston Intercontinental on its 777-200s.

  1. I hope they don’t drag another passenger out of the plane just because of a lame reason.
