Singapore Airlines has signed an agreement to be the launch customer for a new ultra-long-range variant of the Airbus 350 aircraft, enabling the resumption of non-stop flights between Singapore and the United States in 2018.

Singapore Airlines has 63 A350-900s on firm order and the new agreement with Airbus will see seven of these upgraded to orders for the A350-900ULR, which will have a range of up to 8,700 nautical miles.

Deliveries of the A350-900ULR aircraft are scheduled to take place in 2018, enabling the re-launch of the world’s longest non-stop flights, between Singapore and both Los Angeles and New York. Non-stops flights between Singapore and additional points in the US are also under consideration.

The agreement comes as Singapore Airlines is preparing to take delivery of its first A350-900 early in 2016, in line with the Airline’s longstanding policy of maintaining a young and modern fleet.
