At least two Indian origin captains were among the four pilots who flew the first New York-Singapore flight, the world’s longest nonstop, last Friday.
Singapore Airlines (SIA) had the inaugural Changi-Newark (EWR) last Thursday and the return leg was operated a day later. While sources say both the commanders of the first Newark-Singapore nonstop on the Airbus A350 ultra long range (ULR) are of Indian origin, SIA did not comment on that.

“There were four pilots operating the inaugural Newark-Singapore flight. Out of the four pilots, three are Singaporeans while one is Malaysian. Their names and ranking are: Captains I R Chaudhury and Ruben Gamoo and senior first officers Maxx Tan and KH Lim,” a SIA spokesperson said.
