Starting 3 September 2019, Singapore Airlines will fly non-stop from Seattle to Singapore on the Airbus A350 on four days per week.
With this new destination Singapore Airlines increases their nonstop connections to the U.S. to four in total so there is either a surprising demand for Singapore nonstop availability or SIA hopes to spur demand in the market.
The flight will be available on four days per week:

Seattle will become the fifth US city in Singapore Airlines’ route network – and the fourth to be served non-stop from Singapore – when new flights are introduced next year.
The non-stop Singapore-Seattle flights are due to be launched on 3 September 2019 and will initially be operated three times per week before increasing to four times per week in October 2019. Airbus A350-900 aircraft will be used on the route, fitted with 42 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy Class and 187 Economy Class seats.
Subject to regulatory approvals, flight SQ28 will initially depart Singapore at 0925hrs every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and arrive in Seattle at 0905hrs on the same day (all times local). The return sector, operated as SQ27, will depart Seattle at 1040hrs every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and arrive in Singapore the following day at 1730hrs. From October 2019, flight SQ28 and flight SQ27 will operate every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. …
The new Seattle flights will complement Singapore Airlines’ existing services to the US cities of Houston, Los Angeles, New York (both JFK and Newark airports) and San Francisco. Singapore Airlines recently introduced daily non-stop flights between Singapore and New York (Newark) and from tomorrow will fly non-stop between Singapore and Los Angeles using Airbus A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range) aircraft. Existing non-stop services to San Francisco will also be increased from seven to 10 flights per week with effect from 28 November 2018.
Singapore Airlines will operate 53 flights per week to the US by December 2018, including 27 non-stop Singapore-US services. With the introduction of the new Seattle flights next year, total US frequency will increase to 57 flights per week.
Tickets will be made available for sale progressively from 7 November 2018 through the various distribution channels.
The Airbus A350 flights won’t feature a First Class but Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class only based on the configuration of these aircraft. Passengers who wish to fly First can still fly from the U.S. via Tokyo, Seoul or Frankfurt but obviously not non-stop.
Surprising how aggressive Singapore Airlines is now courting the U.S. market and serving all these destinations with both non-stop and connection flights (available as direct with a brief stop).
The flights will definitely be available with Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles if one is interested to book this city pair as a frequent flyer award. It *might* be available with other Star Alliance programs as well but that’s hard to predict right now as SIA availability with Star Alliance partner programs is always scarce and in many cases even blocked. United Airlines Mileage Plus customers for example have to request Singapore Airlines flights over the phone.
