The first Airbus A350-900ULR arrived in Singapore over the weekend as Singapore Airlines prepares to launch the world's longest flights.
The latest variant of the A350 XWB is capable of flying further in commercial service than any other aircraft, with a range of up to 9,700 nautical miles, or over 20 hours non-stop.
The route will have a two-class layout, with 67 business-class seats and 94 premium economy-class seats. The flight to NY will cover a distance of approximately 9,000nm (16,700km), with traveling time of up to 18 hours 45 minutes.
"The A350-900ULR will bring more convenience and comfort to our customers. It will help us boost our network competitiveness and further grow the Singapore hub", he said.
With its unrivalled range and step-change in fuel efficiency, the A350 is uniquely placed to meet demand for new ultra long haul services.

Mr Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus, said: "The combination of the A350's quiet, spacious cabin and SIA's world-renowned in-flight product will ensure the highest levels of passenger comfort on the world's very longest routes".
The aircraft, which is capable of travelling for over 20 hours without stopping, also comes with higher ceilings, larger windows, a wider body, quieter cabins and lighting created to reduce jet lag. Its carbon composite airframe also allows for improved air quality due to a more optimized cabin altitude and humidity levels.
According to a press release published by the airline, journeys between Singapore and NY will begin on 11 October, covering a distance of around 9,000 nautical miles (16,700 km) in roughly 18 hours and 45 minutes.
The final two A350-900ULRs will be used to increase frequency on the airline's flight to San Francisco, a route on which they already compete with United. SIA previously offered the world's longest non-stop flight with its Singapore-Newark route from 2004 to 2013.
