MIAMI — Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced today a rerouting of its Houston – Singapore service, coming into effect for the coming Northern Winter season to start on October 30, 2016.

The new intermediate stop in the Houston-Singapore flights will be Manchester, thus suspending the existing Moscow-Houston and Munich-Manchester services. Both Munich and Moscow will continue to be served, however, on a non-stop basis to and from Singapore.

Services to Munich will be operated daily, while services to Moscow will be operated four times weekly.

Singapore Airlines will also operate daily non-stop flights between Singapore and San Francisco from October 23, 2016 using its new Airbus A350-900. This route is set to become the longest route served by the carrier at 8,451 miles (13,600 km.).

The A350-900 will be able to operate non-stop San Francisco flights on a year-round basis, although depending on headwinds there will be some payload restrictions. The aircraft is configured with 253 seats in a three-class cabin layout.

SIA expects to resume its direct flights to Newark and Los Angeles in 2018, once it begins to take delivery of seven of the ultra-long-haul variant of the Airbus A350-900, dubbed the A350-90ULR.

According to the airline, the details on the new route are subject to regulatory approvals, while ticket sales will be made available on a progressive basis.
