Singapore Airlines debuted its nonstop service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Singapore on Sept. 3 with a ribbon cutting and a lion dance. The inaugural flight departed with a turret salute.
The flights will depart three times a week from Sea-Tac and will expand to four days a week in October. The route is Sea-Tac’s first to Southeast Asia, and is also the longest nonstop flight from Sea-Tac.
Singapore Airlines codeshares with Alaska Airlines. Mileage Plan members will be able to earn miles on Singapore’s Seattle flights.
