NEW DELHI: Singapore Airlines (SIA) will launch the world’s longest non-stop commercial flight between Singapore and Newark from October 11, 2018. The airline will deploy the new Airbus A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range) for covering distance of 16,700km in up to 18 hours and 45 minutes.

The Singapore Changi-Newark Liberty International Airport route will initially be served three times a week, departing Singapore on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Daily operations will start a week later, from October 18, after an additional A350-900ULR aircraft enters service.

SIA CEO Goh Choon Phong said: “SIA has always taken pride in pushing the boundaries to provide the best possible travel convenience for our customers, and we are pleased to be leading the way with these new non-stop flights using the latest-technology, ultra-long-range Airbus A350-900ULR. The flights will offer our customers the fastest way to travel between the two cities — in great comfort, together with SIA’s legendary service — and will help boost connectivity to and through the Singapore hub.”

SIA is the world’s first customer for the new A350-900ULR, with seven on firm order with Airbus. The aircraft will be configured in a two-class layout, with 67 business and 94 premium economy seats. Tickets will be made available for sale progressively across the various booking channels, starting Thursday.

SIA flew on the Singapore-Newark route until 2013, when services were suspended after the aircraft used at the time, Airbus A340-500s, were returned to Airbus.

“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,” the airline said.

SIA currently has 21 A350-900s in its fleet, with 46 more on order including seven of the ULR variant. The first A350-900ULR is due for delivery in September, with all seven due for delivery by the end of the year.

The airline currently serves New York JFK, daily via Frankfurt. Other US destinations include Houston (five times weekly via Manchester), Los Angeles (daily via Seoul and daily via Tokyo), and San Francisco (daily non-stop from Singapore as well as daily via Hong Kong). Non-stop Singapore-Los Angeles flights are also planned with the A350-900ULR.
