Singapore Airlines moved its non-stop New York flight, the longest in the world, from Newark to New York JFK. Then as they rebuilt their schedules for a world where Covid-19 becomes endemic, they announced the return of their New York JFK – Frankfurt – Singapore service (along with their San Francisco – Hong Kong – Singapore service).
However that’s not the end of the story. They’re adding a second non-stop flight to the New York region, the return of Newark – Singapore service.
In a statement to Singapore-based travel site Mainly Miles, an airline spokesperson confirms:
We can confirm that Singapore Airlines will be operating three daily flights between Singapore and New York from 27 March 2022.
This will be the first time that SIA will operate three daily services to the city, and is part of the Airline’s continued efforts to strengthen its connectivity to the United States of America.
The Airbus A350ULR will operate:
- Singapore – Newark, 11:35 pm – 6:00 am+1
- Newark – Singapore, 10:25 am – 5:10 pm+1
This gives them late morning and late night non-stop departures in both directions, and connectivity with Star Alliance member United’s route network at Newark.

The flight will not be a Vaccinated Travel Lane option which would provide for quarantine-free entry at this point, however. Business class saver awards booked through Singapore’s KrisFlyer program run 99,000 miles each way (no fuel surcharges).
The New York JFK flight, though, remains the world’s largest at around 3 miles longer than 9534 mile Newark (which had previously been world’s longest).
