Singapore Airlines to use Airbus A350-900ULR on the world’s longest flight
Singapore Airlines will now be using the Airbus A350-900ULR on the world's longest flight from Singapore to New York. The airline relaunched flights from Singapore to New York and San Francisco last November using the Airbus A350-900.
With increased fuel capacity the A350-900ULR has a range of 18,000km and can stay in the air for up to 20 hours. Before COVID-19 the airline operated 3 of the top 10 world's longest flights.
Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900ULR features 161 seats with business class and premium economy class.
Singapore Airlines last week reported that the airline suffered a net loss of USD 106 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to a net profit of USD 236 million the year before because of the COVID-19 pandemic effects on the aviation industry.
