Singapore Airlines announced Tuesday it will resume its 19-hour flight from Singapore to New York in 2018, to reclaim the title of world’s longest flight.

Singapore Airlines operated the route from Singapore to New York until 2013, but stopped the service because of its inefficiency.

“Our customers have been asking us to re-start non-stop Singapore-U.S. flights and we are pleased that Airbus was able to offer the right aircraft to do so in a commercially viable manner,” said Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong in a press release.
