- Singapore Airlines reinstated non-stop service between Singapore (SIN) and New York Newark (EWR) on 11 October. The airline previously served the 15,329-kilometre route until October 2013, using A340-500s designed in a bespoke 181-seat configuration. The carrier has relaunched the service this time around using its ultra-long range A350-900s which are laid out in a 161-seat set-up. The Star Alliance member will operate three weekly flights during the first seven days of operation, with the frequency increasing to a daily rotation in the week after that. This becomes the airline’s second route to the Big Apple, with it already serving New York JFK via Frankfurt using A380s. No other carrier presently operates non-stop service between Singapore and Newark, with this becoming the world’s longest flight, overtaking Qatar Airways’ Doha to Auckland route which spans 14,526 kilometres.
