Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.

United is currently offering discounted fares on flights from several US cities to Singapore (SIN) for departures from August through December. We’re seeing fares as low as $668 round-trip from Chicago O’Hare (ORD) in September. The flights will be routed through San Francisco (SFO), so you’ll have the chance to fly on United’s new route on the airline’s 787-9 Dreamliner launching June 1, which comes equipped with on-demand in-flight entertainment in all cabins as well as satellite Wi-Fi. Search for your flights on Google Flights and then continue to United’s site to complete your booking.
