Long flights are just apart of the avid traveler’s life, but a new flight on Singapore Airlines could be a challenge for even the most experienced traveler.

 

An update to the Airbus A350 plane is slated to come to Singapore Airlines soon, and the planes are equipped to fly with more than enough fuel for a 20-hour filled with passengers. Singapore Airlines has ordered seven of the new planes, and according to CNET, will use the planes for the 19-hour flight between Singapore and New York City sometime next year.

 

Other versions of the planes are in use for the 17-hour flight between San Francisco and Singapore, and Cathay Pacific will use the A350-1000 beginning this September for 16-hour direct flights between Hong Kong and Washington D.C.

Qatar Airways now has the longest commercial airline flight, operating an 18-hour direct flight between Qatar and New Zealand. Qantas also has an ultra-long flight between Perth, Australia and London that is 17 hours long, but once the Singapore Airlines flight between Singapore and NYC is underway in 2019, it will be the longest non-stop flight in the world. There’s no word on when the route will take flight, but when it does launch, it will be a game-changer for international travel.
