Description

Please join us for a special luncheon on June 3, 2016 to celebrate the launch of United Airlines’ new non-stop flight between Singapore and San Francisco on the world's most advanced passenger airplane, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

United Airlines is the first airline to offer non-stop service between Singapore and San Francisco, and this will be the only non-stop service between Singapore and the United States.  The time savings of up to four hours each way gives AmCham's frequent travelers a very joyous reason to celebrate!

Measured by distance, at 8,446 miles, the Singapore - San Francisco service will be the longest scheduled 787 flight operated by any airline and the longest scheduled flight operated by any U.S. carrier [for more information, see press release here.]

United’s Vice President Atlantic & Pacific Sales, Marcel Fuchs, will provide important perspectives on the future of aviation in the Asia Pacific region, changing aviation technology, and what travelers can expect in the future. Other guests at the luncheon will include U.S.-based senior aviation, aerospace, and travel industry representatives who can relay first-hand their experience on the route's inaugural flight.

As a special guest, we plan to welcome Randy Tinseth, Vice President, Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, who will also arrive in Singapore on the inaugural flight.

We look forward to welcoming you at this special session.
