United Airlines said Friday it was adding a second non-stop daily flight from San Francisco International Airport to Singapore Changi Airport starting in October.

At the same time, the Chicago-based airline is cancelling its longest flight, Los Angeles-Singapore.

The current flight, UA 1, went into service in June 2016. United will continue to operate that as an evening departure and operate the second flight, UA 29, with a morning departure at 10:55 a.m. local time. United flies both with Boeing Dreamliner 787-9 aircraft.

San Francisco to Singapore is currently the world’s seventh longest flight at 8,446 miles (13,592 kilometers). The route is also operated by Singapore Airlines, albeit with Airbus A350.

Los Angeles to Singapore is currently the world’s fourth longest flight at 8,770 miles (14,114 kilometers)
