LOS ANGELES, August 11, 2021 – Singapore Airlines has announced the launch of flights from Los Angeles (LAX) to Taipei (Taoyuan International Airport, TPE), commencing 25 August 2021. The new flight represents the latest step in the ongoing rebuilding of the carrier’s U.S. network since the schedule reductions brought about by covid-19.
SIA will operate Airbus A350-900 aircraft on the route, offering a three-cabin configuration including Business Class (42 seats), Premium Economy Class (24 seats), and Economy Class (187 seats). Round-trip, Economy Class airfares will be priced from $788, including taxes and fees.
In addition to offering a new option for travellers, the new service represents a further increase in SIA’s freight capacity between Los Angeles, Taiwan, Singapore, and connecting destinations. This expanded cargo operation is anticipated to support freight shipments across a range of industries, including e-commerce, perishables, technology and others.
“With this new service, SIA continues to demonstrate its commitment to rebuild and grow our U.S. route network,” said Joey Seow, Regional Vice President – Americas at Singapore Airlines. The company also recently announced restoration of flights from Los Angeles to Tokyo and Singapore, which commenced in June 2021, among other services. “At the same time, our long-term strategy prioritizes flexibility in deploying our fleet, allowing us to move quickly to offer passengers new options for travel as opportunities arise, such as this new service to Taipei.” The addition of new LAX-TPE services will bring SIA’s U.S. route network to approximately 47 percent of pre-covid flight frequency.
