Seeing a potential uptick in air cargo and transit passengers to metro New York, Singapore Airlines (SIA) will resume the world’s longest scheduled flight between Singapore and New York-JFK starting Nov. 9.

The flag-carrier said flying to JFK allows SIA to better accommodate a mix of passenger and cargo traffic in the current operating climate while also meeting forecast air cargo demand to support pharmaceuticals, e-commerce and technology companies.

The flight from Singapore to New York JFK is an 18 hr., 5 min flight. In the opposite direction, the flight from JFK to Singapore Changi takes 18 hrs., 40 min.
