Singapore and the United States have never been better connected thanks to a recent expansion of Singapore Airlines’ network. Following the delivery of its first A350-900 Ultra Long Range (ULR) aircraft, the national flag carrier relaunched its 19-hour non-stop service between Singapore and New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport in October.

At 16,700 kilometers, it’s the world’s longest commercial flight, featuring cabins designed to enhance the ambiance for rest and relaxation. The A350-900ULR has also been deployed on the airline’s new non-stop services between Singapore and Los Angeles, which replace its one-stop run via Seoul and are being operated 10 times a week.

Singapore Airlines has also increased frequency on its existing Singapore–San Francisco route with three more weekly flights, while this September, the launch of yet another non-stop service will see Seattle become the fifth American city in the Singapore Airlines network, with a total of 57 weekly flights to the United States.
