Singapore Airlines to launch non-stop flights to New York

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will launch the world’s longest commercial flights in October, with non-stop services between Singapore and New York using the new Airbus A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range).

Flights are to be launched on October 11 to Newark Liberty International Airport, and the route will initially be served three times a week, departing Singapore on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

Daily operations will commence from October 18 after an additional A350-900ULR aircraft enters service. The aircraft will be configured in a two-class layout, with 67 Business Class seats and 94 Premium Economy Class seats and flights will cover a distance of approximately 9,000nm (16,700km) with a travel time of up to 18hrs 45 minutes.

The A350-900ULR will offer customers a more comfortable travelling experience with features such as higher ceilings, larger windows, an extra wide body and lighting designed to reduce jetlag. Its carbon composite airframe also allows for improved air quality due to a more optimised cabin altitude and humidity levels.
