United Airlines to Operate Longest Scheduled Flight Between San Francisco and Singapore

CHICAGO, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today announced that it will introduce daily nonstop flights between its San Francisco International Airport hub and Singapore's Changi Airport, effective June 1, 2016 (westbound), subject to government approval. United will be the first airline to offer nonstop service between San Francisco and Singapore, and this will be the only nonstop service to the U.S. from Singapore.

United will use the world's most advanced passenger airplane, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, to operate the service. Measured by distance, the San Francisco - Singapore service will be the longest scheduled 787 flight operated by any airline and the longest scheduled flight operated by any U.S. carrier, at 8,446 miles.

"We are very excited about introducing nonstop flights between San Francisco and Singapore," said Marcel Fuchs, United's vice president of Atlantic and Pacific sales. "This long-awaited service has been made possible by the newest version of our customer-pleasing Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and will offer unique benefits to customers traveling between our West Coast hub at San Francisco and Singapore. Customers arriving to San Francisco will have dozens of options to connect to other cities across the Americas."

United customers can book flights by visiting united.com or contacting United reservations on 800.864.8331 or their travel agent.

Flight Schedule

Flight UA1 will depart San Francisco at 11:25 p.m. daily, arriving in Singapore at 6:45 a.m. two days later (all times local). The return flight, UA2, will depart Singapore's Changi Airport at 8:45 a.m. daily, arriving at San Francisco International Airport at 9:15 a.m. the same day. Flying times will be approximately 15 hours, 30 minutes eastbound and 16 hours, 20 minutes westbound.

By using the new nonstop flights between San Francisco and Singapore, customers will be able to save up to four hours' journey time each way, as compared with the current United one- stop service and competitors' schedules.

Convenient Connecting Flights

United has timed the new flights to connect at San Francisco with an extensive network of service throughout the U.S., Canada and Latin America. United and United Express jointly operate over 270 daily flights from San Francisco to 80 destinations throughout North, Central and South America and the Caribbean. With this new service, United will provide convenient one-stop service to more than 40 U.S. cities, including more than 26 cities that do not have one-stop service from Singapore today.

Singapore Schedule Changes

With the launch of nonstop San Francisco - Singapore service, United will terminate service between Singapore and Tokyo/Narita effective June 2, 2016 (eastbound). However, United customers in Singapore may continue to choose to fly to Tokyo/Narita by using daily flights on ANA, United's trans-Pacific joint venture partner, and to make connections at Narita to many cities in the U.S. on multiple flights operated both by United and ANA. United will maintain its daily service between Singapore and Hong Kong.

Onboard Products and Services

The Boeing 787-9 aircraft operating the new San Francisco - Singapore service will feature a total of 252 seats – 48 in United BusinessFirst and 204 in United Economy, including 88 Economy Plus seats with added legroom and increased personal space.

United BusinessFirst offers a superior business-class service. The BusinessFirst seat reclines 180 degrees into a lie-flat bed and features a personal on-demand entertainment system with a 15" touch-screen monitor. BusinessFirst amenities include laptop power, USB ports, noise-reduction headsets, amenity kits featuring Soho House's Cowshed skin-care products, duvet-style blankets and a multi-course meal with complimentary wines.

United Economy offers complimentary food, soft drinks, juices, beer and wine, tea, coffee and inflight entertainment. Seats feature an adjustable headrest and seat-back monitor delivering a personal on-demand entertainment system.

United Economy Plus offers up to five inches of extra legroom. Located near the front of the Economy cabin, the seats give the added benefit of allowing a swifter exit from the plane upon arrival. The aircraft offers satellite-based Wi-Fi and power outlets.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner

The 787 Dreamliner is revolutionizing the flying experience for United customers and crews while delivering unprecedented operating efficiency, comfort and lower emissions. Customers have expressed a preference for the 787 versus other aircraft, given its greater comfort with improved lighting, bigger windows, larger overhead bins, lower cabin altitude and enhanced ventilation systems, among other passenger-friendly features. The aircraft's use of lightweight composites, together with its modern engines and improved aerodynamic design, allow it to fly farther, faster and more efficiently than similar-sized conventional aircraft. To download a high-resolution photo of the United 787, visit http://newsroom.united.com/Boeing787. United currently has 26 787 Dreamliners in its fleet.

United in Singapore

United started service to Singapore in 1986 and today operates daily flights from Singapore to its Tokyo/Narita hub with Boeing 777-200 aircraft, offering convenient connections to seven hub cities in the U.S. United also operates a daily service from Singapore to Hong Kong with Boeing 777-200 aircraft, offering convenient connections at Hong Kong to United hubs in San Francisco, Chicago and New York.

United in San Francisco

From its San Francisco hub, United operates nearly 280 daily flights to more than 90 destinations in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia/Pacific.

About United

United Airlines and United Express operate an average of nearly 5,000 flights a day to 342 airports across six continents. In 2015, United and United Express operated nearly two million flights carrying 140 million customers. United is proud to have the world's most comprehensive route network, including U.S. mainland hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

Supervisors weigh expansion plans for Sonoma County airport


Kent Porter, Press Democrat


Kent Porter, Press Democrat

DEREK MOORE
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT | February 9, 2016, 6:31PM

Sonoma County’s airport is busier than ever, with daily flights ferrying hundreds of thousands of passengers annually to destinations up and down the West Coast.

But that popularity, officials say, sometimes comes at the expense of passenger satisfaction. On the busiest days, finding a place to park is a challenge and the airport’s terminal feels stiflingly crowded.

“With the growth we’ve had from Alaska (Airlines) we’re starting to reach capacity,” airport manager Jon Stout said.

Stout went before the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday to provide an overview of airport operations and to outline options aimed at easing overcrowded conditions.

One proposal, backed by Stout and county transportation officials, would address short-term concerns by significantly increasing the number of long-term parking spaces at the airport by the end of the year, and also increase capacity inside the lone commercial terminal by 2017.

The cost of the proposed expansion — estimated between $10 million and $14 million — would be covered through long-term loans, with money in the county’s general fund acting as collateral.

Under that scenario, terminal and parking capacity would continue to expand in future years depending on projected airport growth.

Supervisor David Rabbitt, an architect, raised concerns whether the piecemeal approach would wind up costing the county in terms of aesthetics.

“If I had my druthers, at least for kicks, I would rather see what the ideal scenario would be and price that out and take it as far as we can,” he said. “Let’s make the terminal something we want in Sonoma County.”

Supervisor Shirlee Zane supported that view, saying “we sometimes build too cheap and we don’t build for the future.”

She and Supervisor Susan Gorin expressed desires that the airport incorporate clean power technologies, such as solar, and integrate with Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit, which is expected to launch passenger rail service later this year.

...

Alaska Airlines has added two daily flights to the Sonoma County schedule since 2010, which is the last year the terminal was expanded. By this summer, a total of eight daily flights are expected to operate from the facility. That includes an Orange County leg expected to be added in March and a second flight to Seattle anticipated in June.

Stout said he has been speaking with officials from Allegiant Airlines about operating flights to Las Vegas and Mesa, Ariz., and to American Airlines about operating a flight to Phoenix. But he said neither airline has committed to those plans.

Airport officials also have been courting airlines to add service to Salt Lake City or Denver, which would open up destinations on the East Coast.

Stout said Alaska has expressed interest in adding a flight to Hawaii in 2017. The Sonoma County Airport expanded its main runway in 2014 to 6,000 feet, which could accommodate a Boeing 737 needed to shuttle passengers to island destinations.

Already, the airport is setting new records annually for traffic. The facility last year served 263,142 passengers, a 10 percent increase from the previous year. Officials expect ridership this year to reach 300,000 passengers, a climb of 14 percent.

Stout said on five days last year, long-term parking filled up and passengers resorted to finding spots on side roads where parking normally isn’t allowed.

The airport has 424 long-term parking spaces. Under the short-term expansion proposal, that number would nearly double.

Likewise, the terminal would expand from its current 125-seat capacity to allow seating for 200. The plans also call for a two-lane security area, a larger baggage claim area and larger airline counter and queue areas. Officials said the terminal could handle 13 to 18 flights per day.

...

Stout said complaints dropped 30 percent in 2015 over the previous year, and that the airport’s master plan limits operations to a maximum of 21 daily departures.

“We’ll never be San Francisco,” Stout said....

Bump... perhaps another new carrier could come to San Francisco if the ICAO and FAA gives it the green light. But it faces tight competition as it also considers another West Coast gateway. From the Bangkok Post:

THAI hopes to resume flights to US
Quote:
Thai Airways International Plc (THAI) aims to resume flights to the United States, though they would be routed through either Seattle or San Francisco instead of Los Angeles, which was the previous destination.

THAI president Charamporn Jotikasthira said the the timing of the move to resume flights to the US depends on the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) withdrawing its "red flag", and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) upgrading the country's aviation status. He revealed the goal at a seminar on aviation safety held on Monday.

THAI suspended its flights from Bangkok to Los Angeles in October last year in line with its rehabilitation plan following years of losses.

With increasing demand, the national flag carrier is now considering flights to either Seattle or San Francisco because passengers could transfer to other destinations, Mr Charamporn said, adding the flights are expected to be launched next year.

If this happens, I am thinking the airline could send either the A350-900XWB or B777-300ER to do either a direct flight (either via ICN, NRT, MNL, HKG, or TPE) or nonstop. The main hurdle right now: Thailand's Civil Aviation Office been deemed as "out of compliance" by the FAA, preventing its airlines from mounting new flights to the US.

It is being reports that they would be using a 787-9 nonstop if they return to the US. They are taking 6 frames next year. Seattle is closer by 500 miles but SFO is a Star Hub and can benefit from UA.

It is pretty surprising that Thai carriers are currently banned from US airspace while in contrast, a short while ago Indonesian carriers, notorious for their reputation have been allowed once again.

What is surprising to me is that SFO doesn't have direct air links to northern and southern Japan (Sapporo and Nagoya), Guam (where United has a mini hub) or Brisbane and Melbourne in Australia.

New, larger terminal for Sonoma County Airport slated for 2019


Kent Porter/Press Democrat 2016


GUY KOVNER
THE PRESS DEMOCRAT | September 15, 2016, 6:03PM

A backpack on his shoulders and sandals on his feet, Healdsburg sculptor T Barney was waiting for his luggage to arrive Wednesday at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, with only a few dozen other travelers on hand.

Barney, who flies out of the local airport about eight times a year, said the terminal is rarely crowded. But if there were more than seven flights a day — a prospect he favors in hopes it would cut down on delays — Barney said a larger terminal might be justified.

“I would vote for the expansion,” he said.

But he won’t have to, since the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors approved financing this week for a $20 million project that will more than double the size of the terminal and the number of parking spaces at the west end of Airport Boulevard.

Nor will taxpayers foot the bill, since the financial plan approved Tuesday involves a series of loans from the county treasury that will be repaid by airport revenues, officials said. Revenue this year is just over $5.5 million.

...

On weekends, when the long-term parking lot typically fills up and an unpaved overflow lot is opened, “people are rolling their luggage through dirt,” he said.

With more passengers using the airport than ever and plans to boost the number of flights over the next 14 years, the pending expansion is “not just going forward, it’s (a matter of) catching up,” Gore said.

The county-owned airport, currently served by Alaska Airlines with seven flights a day and Allegiant Airlines with four flights a week, is on its way to a record of 320,000 passengers this year, breaking the previous record of 263,142 passengers last year and nearly triple the 109,082 passengers in 2007, the year Alaska started local service.

The airport master plan, updated in 2012, forecast as many as 600,000 passengers in 2030, a volume that would exceed the capacity of the planned expansion of the terminal from 15,000 to 34,000 square feet, making it nearly the same size as the new Olivers Market in Windsor.

...

The expanded terminal, expected to cost $12 million to $14 million and to open in early 2019, will be designed to allow future expansion up to 100,000 square feet, he said. While construction is underway, a $700,000 tent-style temporary space will accommodate security screening and passenger waiting.

The $4 million parking lot expansion involves paving a 4-acre area that includes the overflow lot, giving the airport a total of 450 to 500 spaces that should be ready by late 2017, Stout said. The financial plan envisions a final $20 million bond, enough to cover cost increases, he said....

San Francisco to...

- Nagoya: it is in between Tokyo and Osaka, and it may be better suited with Detroit as it is more of an automobile town than SF. Au contraire, with Tesla... maybe in the long term
- Sapporo: better start this as a seasonal route first before going full blown
- Guam: this is an interesting case study as San Francisco is slightly closer to GUM than Los Angeles. It will require a B777 or B787 though to serve the US territory directly, in which it could continue on to another Asian destination like Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, or Manila
- Brisbane: I think the market for it right now is small, but worth a shot in the long term
- Melbourne: perhaps the most important unserved destination of the bunch, especially that Los Angeles has nearly 2 daily flights to Australia's second largest metropolis.

"Virgin Atlantic’s Manchester expansion takes off with inaugural flight to San Francisco"

"Virgin Atlantic has kicked off “significant growth” this week at Manchester Airport with the launch of the first in a hat trick of long-haul services to the US.

This morning (March 28) saw the departure of the carrier’s inaugural service to San Francisco, the first ever direct route between the North of England and Northern California.

In addition to opening up a popular leisure destination for North West holidaymakers, the route has also been hailed as a big Northern Powerhouse boost for giving Northern tech businesses direct access to Silicon Valley.

Virgin Atlantic chief commercial officer Shai Weis marked the occasion alongside with Minister for International Trade Greg Hands and Manchester Airports Group’s chief exec Charlie Cornish by greeting guests ahead of the flight’s departure.

They three were joined by over 30 tech leaders from the North who travelled on the flight as part of a trade mission to Silicon Valley, where they will fly the flag for the Northern tech scene in meetings with representatives of California’s leading universities tech giants and venture capital funding community.

Virgin Atlantic’s Shai Weiss said: “We’ve been flying out of Manchester for over 20 years and today marks our biggest ever route expansion from the city.

“We want to offer our customers services to places they want to travel to and this summer, we’ll have 26% more seats out of the city than last year, cementing our commitment to Manchester and the Northern Powerhouse.”

MAG chief exec Charlie Cornish commented: “Virgin Atlantic’s commitment to Manchester Airport and its significant growth demonstrates the demand that exists for flights from the North to global destinations like San Francisco.

“The fact so many businesses from all parts of the North are joining the trade mission is testament to the role the private sector is playing in realising the Northern Powerhouse vision and I wish them all every success out in Silicon Valley.

“It is the perfect illustration of how direct connectivity to key markets like San Francisco will drive growth in high value sectors and help deliver the Government’s new Industrial Strategy.”

Norwegian Air to Launch Flights from San Francisco to Rome for $229

Norwegian Air says it will begin flying nonstop to Rome's Fiumicino Airport from US cities later this year. The first flights will launch from New York Newark Airport on November 9 with ticket prices of $189 one-way. That will be followed by nonstops to Rome from Los Angeles on November 11, and from San Francisco Oakland's airport in early February 2018. One-way fares from the West Coast will start at $229 one-way. Frequencies vary: from Newark, service will start at 4 flights a week, rising to 6 times a week in February, and from both West Coast gateways it will start at twice-weekly, rising to 3 times a week from LA in February.

"Thomas Cook Airlines starts San Francisco service:

"Thomas Cook Airlines’ Manchester to San Francisco"

"Thomas Cook Airlines launched its inaugural San Francisco (SFO) flight from Manchester (MAN) on 14 May, confirming its position as the biggest carrier to the US from the UK airport. Thomas Cook’s Chief Airlines and Hotels Officer, Christoph Debus, said: “This is such an amazing day for our customers and our airline. Our direct US flights are so great for customer, offering more amazing destinations than any other carrier from Manchester. We are the largest long-haul carrier from Manchester.” Stephen Turner, Commercial Director at Manchester Airport, said: “We are absolutely delighted to see Thomas Cook Airlines’ inaugural flight to San Francisco leave from Manchester, the UK’s global gateway to and from the North. Manchester is the only UK airport outside of London to offer direct services to San Francisco and gives our 26.5m annual passengers easy access to the West Coast of the US. Furthermore it showcases the role Manchester Airport plays in UK aviation, offering passengers in our catchment area easy, direct options from their local airport. I am sure this route will be a success and hope all the passengers on the first flight have a great trip to the US.” Twice-weekly flights (Sundays and Thursdays) to San Francisco are operated by the airline’s A330-200s, and face competition from Virgin Atlantic Airways’ three times weekly service."
