On the return leg, flights departing Singapore (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 09:45 a.m.) offer the convenience of same-day arrivals in Houston (10:20 p.m.).
The carrier will operate its newest Boeing 777-300 Extended Range aircraft on the route in a three-class configuration (8 First Class, 42 Business Class and 228 Economy Class seats).
The new Singapore Airlines flight will become the first-ever nonstop service connecting Houston and Moscow.
