Singapore Airlines have launched the world’s longest nonstop passenger flight from Singapore to New York this week.

The 10,400-mile flight, that will take up to 19 hours, will be flown by a long-range Airbus A350-900 aircraft with all premium seating. 

Singapore Airlines reclaimed its bragging rights as operator of the world’s longest flight last week as it relaunched nonstop service between Singapore and Newark Liberty International Airport near New York City. 

Singapore Airlines previously held the crown with the same route until 2013, when it was canceled. Now, with new Airbus A350s in its fleet, Singapore is back on the route. It launched the service Thursday with the first flight from Singapore.

On Friday, the inaugural nonstop departure for Singapore left from Newark. The aircraft and its 161 passengers completed the 9,535-mile route about an hour quicker than its 18-hour, 30-minute scheduled time. 

Now that it’s back, the new Singapore-Newark flight shaves hours off most of the current connecting options for flights between Singapore and the New York City area.

It’s a welcome change for regulars of the route like Bill Rosenthal, a publishing executive from New York City. Rosenthal began flying the route back in 2006 during Singapore Airlines’ previous run on the route that ended in 2013. Rosenthal says he’s lost count of how many times he’s done it, but he estimates he averages three to four visits per year.

When Singapore discontinued the route, he went back to Singapore’s longer, one-stop option that goes via Frankfurt, Germany.

“It’s so much easier to get on the plane in New York, sit for a really long time, and then walk off the plane in Singapore,” he said as the flight ticked into its 14th hour somewhere over Chengdu, China. “I’ll go right back to taking this flight on a regular basis,” he added.
