Singapore Airlines has announced plans to launch the world’s longest commercial flight from 11 October, a non-stop service from Singapore to just outside New York, which will take nearly 19 hours.

The proposed route from Singapore to Newark, New Jersey, will fly approximately 16,700km and overtake the world’s longest existing flight, Qatar Airlines' Doha to Auckland route, which covers 14,500km.

The service will only offer premium seating, with 67 business class and 94 premium economy class seats available for purchase, and is due to operate three times a week.
