Singapore Airlines start ’s werelds langste vlucht

Graphic News

October 11, 2018 -- Singapore Airlines claimt de titel van ’s werelds langste commerciële vlucht wanneer deze zijn non-stop service tussen Singapore en New York hervat met Airbus A350 jets. De maatschappij vloog de route voor het laatst in 2013

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.
