It has been declared that Singapore Airlines is soon to introduce a non-stop flight of the world towards the conclusion of the current year. With a capacity to fly in air for almost 20 hours, this newly discovered plane is named as Airbus A350-900ULR. Renowned for its ultra-long range, this jetliner soon to be launched by Singapore Airlines is widely in news all over the globe. This world’s longest non-stop jetliner is believed to travel on record-breaking speed and is entitled to link Singapore to New York.
Previously, the airline had four-engine A340-500 that gas-guzzled on its 9,500-mile route. It comprised 100 business class seats for passengers on board. Unfortunately, the airline resulted in failure and Singapore Airline terminated it in the year 2013.
The airline is now on the verge to adopt its newly launched Airbus A350-900. Currently, it features 21 jetliners in its fleet out of the total order of 67 aircrafts. It has been reported that the carrier has made an order of seven ultra-long-range flights. The plane was first tested on 23rd April. The jetliner’s five hour round trip started from the airframer’s assembly plant in Toulouse, France.
With the capacity to fly at a remarkable speed of 11,160 miles, the ultra-long range flight truly deserves the crown of being the longest non-stop plane of the world. The design of the Airbus is done keeping in mind the comfort of its valuable passengers. The well-elated cabins make you feel like at home. In addition, the air-circulation system is draft-free and quiet.
