Once the Airbus A350-900ULR enters service, it will soon host the world's longest flight. Spend a day in the air traveling between Singapore and New York—almost 20 hours. The route is expected to begin by the end of the air, and it will be operated by Singapore Airlines and their newest plane built specifically for ultra-long-range flights. This is not the first time that this route was offered, though. The airline once connected the two cities using the four-engine A340-500, but it soon ended the route due to surging fuel prices.
A350-900ULR will be able to fly 11,160 miles on minimal gas, allowing Singapore Airlines to once again offer the world's longest non-stop route.
