Following Singapore's announcement to expand its Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) to countries including the United States and Canada, Singapore Airlines announced it will be launching services connecting Seattle and Vancouver. The Singapore flag carrier will also convert its San Francisco-Singapore to be a designated VTL flight.
In a relase from the airline, Singapore Airlines will operate a four-times weekly seasonal Seattle-Vancouver-Singapore service starting December 2. With two of the weekly flights designated for VTL travel, the flights will operate through February 15. The airline will use its A350-900 aircraft with 253 seats (42 Business, 24 Premium, 187 Economy).
Singapore Airlines will also update its daily non-stop San Francisco-Singapore flights to be designated VTL services starting October 20.
The added flights are part of Singapore Airlines' VTL services which will also serve Los Angeles and New York.
“With the new Singapore-Vancouver-Seattle flights and the conversion of San Francisco-Singapore to a VTL service, SIA customers can enjoy even more seamless travel options to North America during the year-end holiday season. SIA will continue to monitor the demand for air travel, and adjust its services accordingly,” said Singapore Airlines Senior VP for Marketing and Planning JoAnn Tan.
