Philippine Airlines announced plans for non-stop service linking New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Manila.

The move comes after the airline began one-stop service in 2015 after a 17-year hiatus on flights to the New York area.

The Philippine flag carrier will launch service on October 29, 2018. Service from Ninoy Aquino Manila Airport will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and will depart at 9 p.m. and arrive at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport at 11:35 p.m. Return service to Manila will depart New York at 1:45 a.m. and arrive at 7:15 a.m. the following day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

The route will cover 8,520 miles (13,711 kilometers), making it one of the ten longest flights in the world.

The airline will operate the new flights with Airbus A350 aircraft.
