Singapore Airline is re-launching it's flight from Singapore to New York later today.

It's the longest non-stop plane journey in the world, taking 19 hours in total, travelling almost 17,000km.

The airline put a stop to the route in  2013 as the fuel cost to travel the distance was too expensive.

However, the company has since bought new aircraft's which have made the journey possible. There are no standard economy seats available though, passengers only have the option to travel business class or premium economy at a pricey cost.

To keep themselves occupied for the 19 hours, there's seven weeks' worth of movies and TV shows for passengers to choose from.
