From October, passengers will be able to fly from Singapore to Newark, New Jersey – a journey that will take nearly 19 hours.

The longest non-stop flight available at the moment is Qatar’s 17.5-hour Auckland to Doha route.



That’s closely followed by Qantas’ 17-hour non-stop flight between Perth and London, which launched earlier this year.

But reclaiming the world’s longest route is a bittersweet victory for Singapore’s national carrier.

From 2004 to 2013, it offered the same non-stop service, from Singapore’s Changi airport to Newark’s international airport, which services New York City.

But a rise in oil prices, among other factors, meant the fuel-guzzling plane it was using – Airbus’ A345-500 – became too expensive to run.

The route was cancelled and, luckily for the airline, it was able to return the jets to Airbus.
