Deal: Roundtrip Premium Economy Singapore to New York in Singapore Airlines for S$1,566 (June-July 2024)


Singapore Airlines is offering good Premium Economy fares for what are currently the longest passenger flights in the world, between Singapore and New York JFK/Newark.

Premium Economy Singapore to New York for S$1,566

Travellers can book roundtrip Premium Economy flights from Singapore to both John F. Kennedy (JFK) and Newark (EWR) airports for just S$1,565.60 (typically S$2,000+).

I am seeing this fare for trips in late-June and early-July 2024.

These non-stop flights have scheduled durations of over 18 hours. For this route, Singapore Airlines uses the Airbus A350-900ULR aircraft, equipped with only 2 cabin classes:
