Airbus made fuel system changes to its existing A350-900 aircraft to allow for an extended flight range - giving it the name A350-900 ULR (ultra long range)

A non-stop flight from Singapore to New York with a duration of 18 hours will be operated on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays on the Airbus A350-900ULR. This board is specially designed for ultra-long routes. Its main distinguishing features are a spacious lounge with high ceilings and large portholes and soft lighting minimizing the effect of a jet lag.

In-flight services are also designed taking into account the flight distance: additional facilities for sleeping and relaxing, and menus with specialized sections. Healthy food supporters will be offered the Wellness Cuisines option developed by chefs and nutritionists Canyon Ranch, a leading brand in their field.

Business class seating on Singapore Airline's new A350-900 ULR - the flight will not offer any economy seating

For entertainment on board is provided the first in the world personalized system myKrisWorld, which offers recommendations depending on the preferences and history of views of the traveler. For work - high-speed WiFi, providing trouble-free access to the Internet thanks to a third-generation satellite communications system.
