Starting 9 November this year (next month) SIA will be flying non-stop from SIN/JFK vv 3 times a week. The flights will carry lots of cargo and a limited number of passengers due to social distancing. SIA will be using the long range A359 aircrafts. The normal pax configuration is around 250 for the 3 classes.
The flights will take about 18 hours to JFK and slightly longer on the way back due to headwind.
The announcement of the above has created a lot of optimism among the travel industries and the crew.
