Nonstop flights are the elusive holy grail that many seek. After all, they cut out the stress of a connecting flight (or boredom of sitting in the terminal for hours) and get you to your destination faster so you can start your vacation sooner.
United Airlines has double daily non-stop service from San Francisco International Airport to Singapore Changi Airport (and vice versa). These flights are made on a top-of-the-line jet that’s equipped with everything you need for a comfortable intercontinental flight, including United’s world-class service.
If you’re thinking, “That’s great for San Francisco, but what about other cities,” you’re forgetting about the far-reaching benefits of this nonstop service. Take, for example, the more than 26 cities across the Americas—like Washington, DC, Vancouver, and Mexico City—that will now experience reduced travel time thanks to this direct flight, turning what might have been two or three layovers into just one.
How to Find Flight Deals to Singapore
To make sure you take advantage of United Airlines’ nonstop flights to Singapore, you can go about your flight search on Skyscanner in two ways, which we’ll break down here.
First, your classic flight search. Begin by typing in your origin city and using Singapore as the destination, and then filter the results by airline to see which deals only United Airlines has to offer. Take it a step further by deselecting “2+ stops” so only the nonstop and one-stop options appear.
The other method is to use the multi-city search, which allows you to include a short stopover in San Francisco if you want to spend a little time seeing the city. You’ll type your origin airport and SFO into the first row and then SFO and SIN into the second row. Add one more row for your return from Singapore. Once the search results appear, filter the airlines so you only see United. Be sure to play around with the dates between when you land in SFO and when you depart to see if it affects price.

Why Travel to Singapore and Southeast Asia

Downtown Singapore is only 20 minutes from the airport. This cosmopolitan island is an exciting vacation destination, internationally known for its flavorful hawker stall food, abundance of shopping options, and diverse neighborhoods, from colorful Little India to lively Clarke Quay.

Inside the Flight Experience
During the United Airlines nonstop flight between San Francisco and Singapore, passengers are in the air for about 17 hours on the way to Singapore Changi Airport, and the return trip lasts a bit under 15 hours thanks to the tailwind.

Once in the air, you’ll notice larger windows, improved lighting, comfortable seats with more headroom when you stand and delicious meal options (snacks included).
