World’s longest nonstop flight from Singapore to New York to be launched

Published on : Thursday, April 26, 2018

Airbus A350Singapore Airlines is slated to introduce the world’s very first non-stop flight with nearly 20 hours in the air by the end of this year as reported by the media on Thursday.

 

The newest plane of Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900ULR – for Ultra Long-Range would travel on a record-breaking, globe-spanning flight connecting Singapore to New York.

 

Earlier the airplane used to fly the gas-guzzling, four-engine A340-500 on the 9,500-mile route with just 100 business-class seats on board the flight.

 

The service proved to be inefficient and therefore Singapore Airlines had to cancel the flights in the year 2013.

 

Currently Singapore Airlines is taking delivery of the newest wide-body of Airbus that is the A350-900. It has about 21 airplanes in its fleet of an order for 67 aircraft. It has ordered seven of the Ultra Long-Range airplanes.

 

On 23rd April, the plane had its first test flight.

 

It was a five-hour round-trip that was launched from the assembly plant of the airframer in Toulouse, France. The Ultra Long-Range would be able to fly an excellent 11,160, an increase of over 1,800 miles over the standard A350. It implies that Singapore Airlines would reclaim the prestigious crown of running the longest non-stop air route of the world.

 

In order to make it more comfortable for air travelers, the A350s share the design philosophy that makes the airplane cabin feel more like a room rather than a long tube.

 

The airplane would possess high ceilings, sophisticated LLED lighting, almost vertical sidewalls and a low noise level.

 

The air circulation system on the A350 has also been designed to be quiet and draft-free.
