NEW YORK, January 13, 2022 -- Singapore Airlines has announced the restoration of daily flights from Newark Liberty International Airport from 28 March 2022, operating with nonstop service to Singapore. With this reinstatement, SIA expands to serve the New York metro area with three daily flights, including nonstops from both Newark and JFK to Singapore, and A380 service from JFK operating to Singapore via Frankfurt. SIA will now operate the world’s two longest flights – each approximately 18:45 hours nonstop – from the NYC area, providing passengers with additional schedule options for the fastest means of travel to Southeast Asia.

“SIA is indeed ‘tripling-down’ on the Big Apple,” said Joey Seow, Regional VP – Americas for Singapore Airlines. “Expanding for the first time to triple-daily service from the New York area is a key example of our commitment to both rebuild and grow our U.S. route network. With the relaunch of our Newark-Singapore flights, SIA will have restored operations to each of our six U.S. gateway markets, in addition to debuting a new, seasonal service from Vancouver to Singapore. Despite the ongoing challenges of covid, we continue to see strong demand for premium air travel.” SIA’s roster of North American points now includes New York (JFK), Newark* (EWR), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA) and Vancouver (YVR).
