All aboard for the world's longest flight. 

Singapore Airlines is set to break the record for the world’s longest non-stop flight route this October, with the opening of its new service between Changi Airport, Singapore, and Newark Liberty International Airport, New York.

The 16,000km flight will take approximately 19 hours to complete in their “Ultra Long Range” (ULR) Airbus SE A350-900s, which are mercifully designed for greater long-haul comfort.

Good news for travelers seeking to avoid the inconvenience of a long layover when traveling stateside. With more non-stop flights departing from Singapore planned to follow, keep track of their upcoming flight schedules at Singaporeair.com. The price is B95,521 round-trip.
