By the end of the year, Air France will serve 170 destinations, i.e. almost all of its regular winter network, with frequencies adapted to the level of demand.

On the domestic network, 43 routes will be operated on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Lyon Saint-Exupéry, most of which will offer day return flights.

In Europe, Air France will serve 67 destinations, i.e. its entire regular network for this time of year.

Capacity deployed on the long-haul network – mainly for essential travel and cargo – will continue to increase, particularly to destinations in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean, with additional frequencies being introduced to Fort-de-France and Pointe-à-Pitre on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, and to Saint-Denis de La Réunion, on departure from Paris-Orly.

Singapore Airlines To Bring Back The World’s Longest Non-Stop Service To JFK

Published

on

Singapore Airlines A350 Livery

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will return to New York on 9 November 2020, when it launches non-stop flights between Singapore and John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Before the pandemic, Singapore Airlines host the title of flying the world’s longest flight by a whooping distance of 15,344 km between Singapore Changi and Newark Liberty airport. The airlines claims by shifting to JFK International Airport would allow them to better accommodate a mix of passenger and cargo traffic on its services to New York in the current operating climate. 


Singapore Airlines’s non-stop services to New York would also be supported by the growing number of transfer passengers who can now transit via Singapore’s Changi Airport.

SIA also anticipates significant cargo demand from a range of industries based in the New York metro area, including pharmaceuticals, e-commerce and technology firms. 

The new service will provide the only non-stop air cargo link from the U.S. Northeast to Singapore, which serves as a regional distribution hub for many major U.S.-based companies.

Singapore Airlines will also be operating the route with a 3-class configuration Airbus A350-900 long-range aircraft. This aircraft is configured with 42 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy Class and 187 Economy Class seats.

Today, SIA operates non-stop services to Los Angeles.

It will continue to review its operations to the United States, and assess the growing demand for air travel amid the ongoing recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, before deciding to reinstate services to other points in the country.


“Operating these flights between Singapore and New York’s JFK International Airport represent an important step in the rebuilding of our global network.

Non-stop ultra-long services are the bedrock of our services to the key U.S. market. We will continue to ramp up existing services and reinstate other points as the demand for both passenger and cargo services return.

Despite the challenging times for the airline industry, there are some early signs of optimism about a recovery in air travel.

Our customers say that they are increasingly confident about air travel, given the robust health and safety measures that are in place, as well as testing regimes to protect them and our staff.

This optimism is also driven by recent moves by countries such as Singapore, which are easing the restrictions on both transit and inbound passengers in a safe and gradual manner.”

Lee Lik Hsin, Executive Vice President Commercial for Singapore Airlines
