New 'longest' NY-Singapore flight fueled by Air BP

Air BP fuelled the world’s new longest non-stop flight between Newark International Airport (EWR/KEWR) and Singapore Changi Airport (SIN/WSSS).

The Jet A that was uplifted for the flight was pumped from Air BP’s storage facilities in New Jersey to Newark International Airport’s fuel system. The flight covered a distance of around 16,700 km and a travel time of approximately 18 hours and 45 minutes.

Commenting on the achievement, Joe McGregor, North America Supply Director said:

“We are proud to play our part in fuelling the world’s new longest non-stop flight and are delighted to be supporting Singapore Airlines as they expand their presence in the US.
Air BP has helped to make aviation history for over 90 years, and through our ongoing investment in our US operations we are committed to continuing to innovate and lead in this space.”
