Singapore Airlines to operate non-stop services to New York JFK from November

The three-times a week service will bypass Frankfurt for the first time since the 1990s. Singapore Airlines has announced the resumption of its Singapore-New York service, this time round with a non-stop service to New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) international airport. The non-stop flights to New York will restart from 9 Nov 2020 operating three times a week, using the 3-class variant of its Airbus A350 aircraft. This will be the airline’s second US destination after Los Angeles since the network reduction due to Covid-19. For the record, SIA used to serve two airports in the Greater New York area just before Covid-19 struck: a daily service to JFK via Frankfurt, and a second non-stop service to Newark Liberty Airport (EWR).

Singapore Airlines full schedule for May 2020

Only 3% of its usual schedule in operation for the month. Singapore Airlines has announced their schedule for the month of May. In this month, Singapore Airlines will only take off about 324 times – and that includes a single weekly return Silkair service to Chongqing. In May, SIA will continue operating to the 15 cities in 13 countries, no change from the cities it operated to in April. These include Los Angeles, Shanghai, Sydney, London, Zurich, Frankfurt and a handful of Southeast Asia capitals. This is the second month that SIA is operating a skeletal schedule. While SIA’s booking engine and GDS do show a ‘regular’ pre Covid-19 schedule in June, we would expect that this be pared down significantly, given that international travel restrictions are not showing any signs of easing up right now. Stay tuned for more updates. Full schedule below: Southeast Asia North Asia Australia Europe USA Southeast Asia – 129 flights Sector Flight no.
