Singapore Airlines upcoming termination of non-stops to US spells end to ultra long-range travel

Singapore Airlines upcoming termination of non-stops to US spells end to ultra long-range travel

An important chapter in aviation history and Singapore Airlines ’ strategy for the North America market comes to an end over the next two months as SIA operates its last non-stop flights to the US . Without the A340-500 all-premium flights from Singapore to Los Angeles and Newark , there will not be any scheduled flights over 16 hours and 20 minutes. Ultra long-range routes have proven to be uneconomical, making it unlikely there will be a return of flights over 17 hours, which can only be flown by the niche A340-500 or 777-200LR. There will only be 17 A340-500s remaining in service after SIA phases out the type and these aircraft are being predominantly used on short and medium missions. There are over 50 777-200LRs in service but this is also a very modest number and none of the aircraft are being flown to their maximum range.
