SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) will fly four times a week to Vancouver in Canada and Seattle in the United States from Dec 2 to Feb 15 next year, said the carrier on Monday (Oct 11).

Announcing the seasonal services, SIA said two of these weekly Seattle-Vancouver-Singapore flights will operate as vaccinated travel lane (VTL) services, providing eligible customers entry into Singapore without COVID-19 quarantine. Sale of tickets through various distribution channels will begin on Tuesday at noon.

SIA indefinitely suspended its thrice-weekly service between Singapore and Vancouver via Seoul on Apr 25, 2009, ending the airline’s more than 20 years of flying to Canada. In a press release on Jan 14, 2009, it attributed the move to the global economic downturn.

For this seasonal service, flight SQ28 will depart from Singapore Changi Airport at 9.15am and arrive at Vancouver International Airport at 7.30am. It will then leave for Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at 8.40am to arrive at 9.30am.

Flight SQ29, SIA’s twice-weekly designated vaccinated travel lane service, will depart from Seattle at 11am and arrive at 11.45am in Vancouver, before departing again at 1.15pm to arrive the next day at 10.05pm in Singapore.

SIA will also operate SQ27, a twice-weekly Seattle-Vancouver-Singapore service, for customers who are not eligible to enter Singapore under the vaccinated travel lane arrangement.

The 253-seat Airbus A350-900 will be deployed for the Singapore-Vancouver-Seattle service, with 42 business class seats, 24 premium economy seats and 187 economy seats.
