Longest flight in the world

- From Singapore to New York -

After months of suspension by the pandemic COVID-19, Singapore Airlines returned the longest flight in the world. There is only one difference: the US airport will change from Newark, NJ, to JFK, New York, which pushes the distance up to 9,536.5 miles.

The flight will take place three times a week, using an Airbus A350-900 with 187 economy seats, 24 premium economy seats, and 42 in business class.

Flights from Singapore to JFK will take 18 hours and 5 minutes, while JFK flights to Singapore will take 18 hours and 40 minutes due to the headwinds. On that route, passengers will also arrive two days after their departure, thanks to the 10:30 pm departure and 6:10 am arrival time.

Visitors other than permanent residents, visa holders, or travelers from countries that qualify for an ‘Air Travel Pass’ (Australia, Brunei Darussalam, New Zealand, and Vietnam) are not allowed to enter Singapore.
