SINGAPORE -- Singapore Airlines now operates more flights to North America than in the pre-pandemic period, pulling far ahead of Cathay Pacific of Hong Kong, the city-state's rival trans-Pacific aviation hub in Southeast Asia.

Singapore's flag carrier serviced at least 532 flights between its home country and North America in June, according to British analytics firm Cirium, exceeding the last peak in January 2020 by about 5%.
