Singapore Airlines to operate twice-daily nonstop flights between Singapore and New York

Singapore Airlines is betting big on New York flights. The airline has scheduled twice-daily nonstop flights to New York in the Summer schedule of 2022.

Twice-daily nonstop to the New York region

Starting 27th March 2022, Singapore Airlines (SIA) will operate a daily nonstop flight to Newark Liberty International Airport. This flight will run in addition to the already-operating nonstop flight between Singapore’s Changi Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. In addition to these nonstop flights, the airline will also run a one-stop flight to New York JFK via Frankfurt in Germany. That means that SIA will be operating a total of 3 daily flights (2 nonstop and 1 with a stop) to the New York region, the highest ever in its history.

The flight schedule of Singapore-New York JFK-Singapore route, which is already-operating daily, is:

  • Singapore-New York JFK
  • Departure time: 11:50
  • Arrival time: 18:30
  • Flight time: 18 hours and 40 minutes
  • Flight number: SQ24
  • Frequency: Daily
  • New York JFK-Singapore
  • Departure time: 22:30
  • Arrival time: 05:20 (+2 days)
  • Flight time: 18 hours and 50 minutes
  • Flight number: SQ23
  • Frequency: Daily

The flight schedule of Singapore-Newark-Singapore route is:

  • Singapore-Newark
  • Departure time: 23:35
  • Arrival time: 06:00 (the next day)
  • Flight time: 18 hours and 25 minutes
  • Flight number: SQ22
  • Frequency: Daily
  • Newark-Singapore
  • Departure time: 10:25
  • Arrival time: 17:10 (the next day)
  • Flight time: 18 hours and 45 minutes
  • Flight number: SQ21
  • Frequency: Daily

The flights are timed in such a way that SIA will offer a afternoon and evening departure from Singapore and a evening and morning arrival in New York. On the other hand, the carrier will offer a morning and evening departure from New York and a morning and evening arrival in Singapore. These two routes will be the longest in the world, with the distance between Singapore and New York JFK being 9537 miles (15348 kilometres) and the distance between Singapore and Newark being 9534 miles (15343 kilometres).

These flights will be operated by Airbus A350-900ULR (Ultra Long Range) featuring 67 Business Class and 94 Premium Economy Class seats. These aircraft do not feature a standard Economy Class cabin.

Presently, SIA operates flights to New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and Seattle from Singapore, with the flights being either nonstop or one-stop.

Meanwhile, Singapore Airlines recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Garuda Indonesia.
