SIA Is Set To Shine In Glittering Las Vegas!

On Friday, 2 August 2002 Singapore Airlines (SIA) departed for its latest destination – Las Vegas. The three-times-weekly flight, via Hong Kong, is Southeast Asia’s first direct service to the US entertainment capital.

The route is serviced by a B777-200ER (Extended Range) aircraft which is not only fitted with SpaceBeds, SIA’s latest luxurious business class lie-flat seats, but also installed with the latest KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system, enabling all passengers on board to enjoy audio-video-on-demand as well as over 200 entertainment options.

The flights depart Singapore with same day arrivals in Las Vegas on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The return service from Las Vegas departs on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving back in Singapore the next day.

Besides being the first-ever direct service from South East Asia, the flights into Las Vegas serve as an important gateway for trade to Mid-western states including Nevada, Arizona, and Utah.

To celebrate the launch of services to Las Vegas, from 15 August to 30 September Singapore Airlines and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore will jointly bring Las Vegas-themed entertainment shows and audience participation games to all passengers at the transit areas of Singapore’s Changi Airport.

This new destination means SIA now operates 45 direct flights weekly from Singapore to United States. The other 42 flights serve New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. The combined route networks of SIA and its regional subsidiary, SilkAir, cover 92 destinations in 38 countries. With codeshare services included, SIA’s global reach extends to 109 destinations in 39 countries.
