October 11, 2018 -- Singapore Airlines werden den Titel "Längster Passagierflug der Welt" für sich beanspruchen, sobald sie ihren non-stop Service mit Airbus A350 zwischen Singapur und New York aufnehmen. Zuletzt flog die Airline die Strecke bis 2013 mit Airbus A340, diese Flüge wurden wegen hoher Treibstoffpreise eingestellt.

Flights will cover a distance of approximately 16,700km using the new, fuel-efficient A350-900ULR (ultra-long-range) plane. The proposed route will eclipse the 14,525km Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Auckland as the world’s longest, according to airline data provider OAG

Launching on 11 October, the route will be served three times a week before daily operations commence from 18 October.

Singapore Airlines served the Singapore-Newark route until 2013 when high fuel prices made the use of four-engined Airbus A340-500 jets uneconomic. It has since flown to New York’s JFK Airport via Frankfurt.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
