Over time, different airline companies have established a number of ultra-long haul non-stop flights. This article covers the longest flights among them. The opening of these super long routes can reduce the number of stops passengers must take to increase passenger comfort in the journey and reduce the time needed to travel between distant city pairs, although stopovers can also be rejuvenating in long distance travel.[1][2] It also can help build ego and build loyalty among a set of flyers.[3] And thus there is competition among airlines to establish the longest flight.[4]

DefinitionEdit

The term "longest flight" can mean numerous different things. The most commonly used metric would be for distance between the origin airport and destination airport, but it can also refer to longest in term of time needed to fly the route or the distance actually flown by the aircraft (when a longer route can use the jet stream to actually reduce total travel time). Also, although the term is most commonly used to compare between different non-stop flights, direct flights with stops (same flight number used for full journey) might also be compared in some occasions.

Current longest routeEdit

The "world's longest flight" has disputed status due to the generality of such a claim. While the distance between two cities is constant, aircraft do not follow a straight path but will adjust the flight path based on headwinds and tailwinds and other weather events, and to avoid flying over certain countries because of politics or war.[5]

By great circle distanceEdit

Since October 11, 2018, the longest non-stop scheduled airline flight by great circle distance is Singapore Airlines Flights 21/22 between Singapore and Newark, New Jersey,[6] at 15,344 kilometres (8,285 nmi; 9,534 mi).[7]

By ground distance traveledEdit

Routings may avoid the shorter ground distance of a great circle route to use tailwinds to save time and fuel, shortening the equivalent still-air distance. Typically, the longest flights measured by ground distance traveled are Singapore Airline's flight 22 from Singapore to Newark. Both of these routes[clarification needed] have the geometrically optimal great circle route near the North Pole, but rather choose to fly over the Pacific Ocean where the assistance of the jet stream is available to save flying time and fuel. The Air India flight from New Delhi to San Francisco flies a longer distance over the Pacific Ocean instead of a shorter route over Atlantic Ocean to avoid prevailing westerly head winds.[8] AI173 and AI183 fly about 15,100 km (9,300 mi) making it one of longest non-stop flights.[9][10] In general, both of these flights travel about 15,300 km (8,261 nmi; 9,507 mi) in ground distance, and it is not unheard of for particular flights to cover more than 16,000 km (8,639 nmi; 9,942 mi). However, for both of these flights, the great circle distance is among the top 30 longest.[11][12]

Cathay Pacific flights from Hong Kong to New York City-JFK will also sometimes fly 15,000 km (8,099 nmi; 9,321 mi) ground routes, instead of a 12,984 km (7,011 nmi; 8,068 mi) great circle route, for the same reason.[13]

HistoryEdit

 
PBY Catalina G-AGKS of the Double Sunrise service.

From 1943 to 1945, Qantas operated "The Double Sunrise", a weekly 5,652 kilometres (3,052 nmi; 3,512 mi) flight between Perth, Australia and Koggala Lagoon in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) with average flight times of 28 hours, using a Consolidated PBY Catalina.[14] One of these flights remains the record holder for longest time airborne (for a commercial flight) at 32 hours, 9 minutes.[15]

On October 1–2, 1957, a Trans World Airlines Lockheed L-1649 Starliner, the ultimate piston-engine airliner in terms of range and endurance, flew the inaugural 8,638 kilometres (4,664 nmi; 5,367 mi) London–San Francisco polar route in 23 hours, 19 minutes.[16]

In June 1961, an El Al Boeing 707-320 flew a 9,137 kilometres (4,934 nmi; 5,677 mi) route from New York City-JFK to Tel Aviv averaging 9 hours, 33 minutes. This route was previously tested in December 1957 with a Bristol Britannia.[17]

In August 1967, Aerolíneas Argentinas established its non-stop Boeing 707-320B service on a 10,063 kilometres (5,434 nmi; 6,253 mi) route between Madrid and Buenos Aires with a flight time of 12 hours.[18] The arrival of the more fuel-efficient turbofans made easier the possibility of longer flights.

The Aerolíneas Argentinas route was the longest scheduled flight by distance until 1976, when the Boeing 747-SP entered service. In April 1976, Pan American World Airways set the new record with its 10,899 kilometres (5,885 nmi; 6,772 mi) New York City-JFK/Tokyo-Haneda route. In December, the airline set another record with Sydney–San Francisco, covering 11,937 kilometres (6,445 nmi; 7,417 mi).[19]

The dissolution of the Soviet Union eventually opened the airspace over Russia, allowing new circumpolar routes to come into use for commercial airlines.[20] On March 1, 2001, Continental Airlines launched a 12,980 kilometres (7,009 nmi; 8,065 mi) non-stop service from Newark to Hong Kong flying Boeing 777 aircraft. The duration of the non-stop flight exceeded 16 hours.[20] Within a month, United Airlines started its own New York City-JFK to Hong Kong service with Boeing 747-400 aircraft, adding 11 kilometers to the distance.[20]

In June 2004, Singapore Airlines introduced Flight SQ 21, using the Airbus A340-500 on a 15,344 kilometres (8,285 nmi; 9,534 mi) great circle route from Newark to Singapore, passing within 130 kilometres (70 nmi; 81 mi) of the North Pole and taking a little over 18 hours.[21] This was immediately surpassed by return Flight SQ 22, which flew the current record of 16,600 kilometres (8,963 nmi; 10,315 mi) back to Newark.[22] Despite the greater distance, SQ 22 averaged a slightly shorter 17 hours, 45 minutes because of prevailing high-altitude winds.[23]

In the late 2000s/early 2010s, rising fuel prices coupled with the Great Recession caused the cancellation of many ultra-long haul, non-stop flights.[24] This included the services provided by Singapore Airlines from Singapore to both Newark and Los Angeles that were ended in late 2013.[25][26] But as fuel prices have since decreased and more fuel efficient aircraft have come into service, many ultra-long haul routes have been reinstated or newly scheduled.[24]

Record flightsEdit

 
A Qantas B747-400 known as the City of Canberra (VH-OJA). This 747 flew from London to Sydney non-stop during its 1989 promotional flight, flying 17,000 kilometers in about 20 hours.

A number of promotional or delivery flights have extended the record of longest non-stop flights by a commercial aircraft.

In August 1989, the first Qantas Boeing 747-400, the City of Canberra, set a non-stop distance record for a commercial aircraft by flying 17,016 kilometres (9,188 nmi; 10,573 mi) between London and Sydney in 20 hours, 9 minutes. The purpose was to publicize the airline's "Longreach" services with the 747-400. In addition to the five pilots, two cabin crew and sixteen passengers were aboard.[27]

This record held until June 16, 1993, when an Airbus A340-200, dubbed the World Ranger, flew from the Paris Air Show to Auckland, New Zealand in 21 hours 32 minutes and back in 21 hours, 46 minutes after a five-hour layover. This was the first non-stop flight between Europe and New Zealand.[28] The 19,277 kilometres (10,409 nmi; 11,978 mi) Paris to Auckland had 22 people aboard and five center tanks.[29]

The record was extended in July 1997, when a Boeing 777-200ER flew 20,044 kilometres (10,823 nmi; 12,455 mi) from Seattle to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on delivery to Malaysia Airlines.[30]

The record was further extended on November 9, 2005, by a Pakistan International Airlines Boeing 777-200LR. It traveled 21,602 kilometres (11,664 nmi; 13,423 mi) eastward from Hong Kong to London-Heathrow in roughly 22 hours, 22 minutes as opposed to a normal westward routing for that sector, which is much shorter at 9,648 kilometres (5,210 nmi; 5,995 mi).[31] Aboard were eight pilots and 27 passengers.[32]

Four months later, on March 25, 2006, British Airways (BA) used a similar Boeing 777-200ER to fly the longest commercial non-stop flight with paying passengers, when chartered by UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and his entourage of staff and journalists to fly from meetings in Brussels, traveling non-stop to ensure their attendance at the closing ceremonies of the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.[33] The flight, covering 17,157 kilometres (9,264 nmi; 10,661 mi) and lasting 18 hours, 45 minutes, included a BA staff of 20 to facilitate cockpit and cabin crew rotation during the flight.[33]

Future routesEdit

Scheduled servicesEdit

A number of soon to be enabled services, with non-stop flights exceeding 12,750 kilometres (6,884 nmi; 7,922 mi), placing them on or close to the top 30 list, have been announced:

From To Airline Number Distance Scheduled Aircraft First
Brisbane Chicago–O'Hare Qantas QF85/86 14,326 km (8,902 mi; 7,735 nmi) 16:10 to 17:20 Boeing 787-9 April 20, 2020[34]

Announced but not yet scheduled servicesEdit

In August 2015, Emirates announced that nonstop flights between Dubai and Panama City, Panama, would begin on February 1, 2016, covering 13,821 km (7,463 nmi; 8,588 mi)[35] in 17 hours, 35 minutes westbound. In January 2016, the start was postponed to March 31, 2016. In early March 2016, Emirates postponed the route until the end of 2016 or early 2017 or "as soon as conditions allow". As of July 2018, no further information has been given on the potential route.[36][37]

In April 2017, Qatar Airways announced that it will begin flying between Doha and San Francisco in 2018. The airline will use Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on the 13,014 km (7,027 nmi; 8,087 mi) route.[38]

Envisioned servicesEdit

According to a published report in September 2015, Miami International Airport (Florida) was in talks with EVA Air and China Airlines of Taiwan to launch before 2018 a nonstop 13,922 km (7,517 nmi; 8,651 mi) flight to Taipei.[39] In June 2016, a chartered China Airlines Boeing 777-300ER carrying Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen flew non-stop from Taipei to Miami before continuing to Panama. The airport director spoke with President Tsai about the opportunity for scheduled service between Miami and Taipei.[40] The airport has been actively pursuing a non-stop flight to East Asia since 2015. There are no non-stop passenger flights between Florida, the third-most populous state in the U.S., and East Asia.[41][42] In May 2017, the region's aviation department director predicted such a flight would happen within the next 24 months.[43]

Qantas is looking at starting non-stop flights between Perth and Paris in 2019 with Boeing 787-9 aircraft.[44] If a capable airliner becomes available, Qantas could launch non-stop flights by 2022 from Australia's eastern capitals to London.[45] Qantas estimates that a Sydney to London flight (17,016 kilometres (9,188 nmi; 10,573 mi)) would take 20 hours, 20 minutes, while a Sydney to New York City flight (16,013 kilometres (8,646 nmi; 9,950 mi)) would take 18 hours, 7 minutes.[45] On October 20, 2019, Qantas demonstrated the New York City to Sydney flight using a Boeing 787-9.[46] The flight took 19 hours, 15 minutes and the 49 people on the plane were staff and selected guests. In order to make the flight possible, the weight had to be precisely trimmed by limiting the number of passengers and cargo weight.

The Airbus A350-900ULR was launched in 2018 with a range of 17,964 kilometres (9,700 nmi; 11,162 mi)[47] and will be capable of flying both routes non-stop (Sydney - London and Sydney - New York City).[citation needed] The Boeing 777-8 is expected to enter service by 2022,[citation needed] have a range of 16,090 kilometres (8,688 nmi; 9,998 mi), and carry up to 365 passengers.[48] The 777-8X will be capable of flying the Sydney to New York City route non-stop with a higher payload than the A350-900ULR. It will also be able to fly Sydney to London non-stop with a low density configuration which allows to carry less than 365 passengers.[49]

Air New Zealand is envisioning non-stop flights from Auckland to New York City (14,207 km (7,671 nmi; 8,828 mi)) and Toronto (13,867 km (7,488 nmi; 8,617 mi)) beginning in the early 2020s. The airline has announced an order of Boeing 787-10 aircraft to replace its Boeing 777-200ER fleet.[50]

Vietnam Airlines is planning to use its A350-900 aircraft to fly between Ho Chi Minh City and Los Angeles, a great-circle distance of (13,146 km (7,098 nmi; 8,169 mi)).

Thai Airways is also looking to resume nonstop flights to the US mainland, using the Boeing 787-9 aircraft between Bangkok and San Francisco (12,767 km (6,894 nmi; 7,933 mi)).

AirlinersEdit

The longest range Airbus jetliner in service is the A350-900ULR, which is capable of flying 18,000 kilometres (9,700 nmi; 11,000 mi).[51][52] The A340-500 is capable of flying 16,670 kilometres (9,000 nmi; 10,360 mi) with 293 passengers. The A380 is capable of flying 15,200 kilometres (8,200 nmi; 9,400 mi) with 544 passengers. The regular A350-900 can fly 15,000 kilometres (8,100 nmi; 9,300 mi) with 325 passengers.

The longest range Boeing airliner in service is the 777-200LR, which can cover 17,446 kilometres (9,420 nmi; 10,840 mi) with 317 passengers. The announced Boeing 777-8X will be capable of flying 16,110 kilometres (8,700 nmi; 10,010 mi) with 350 to 375 passengers.[53] A longer range variant of the 777-8X could enable economical non-stop flights on the 17,016-kilometre (9,188 nmi; 10,573 mi) Kangaroo Route between London and Sydney in about 19 hours.[54]

Many long-haul, non-stop routes that used to be uneconomical to operate are being made viable by the Airbus A330neo, the Airbus A350 XWB, the Boeing 777X, and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.[55]

Longest passenger flightsEdit

Non-stop flights (top 30, by great circle distance)Edit

The following table lists the world's longest non-stop scheduled passenger routes by "great circle" distance. The actual distance flown, however, can be longer than the great circle distance for a variety of reasons, such as avoiding severe weather, taking advantage of favorable winds aloft, detouring around closed airspace, and diverting around war zones.

For the purposes of this table, multiple flights operated by the same airline between the same airports are counted as one flight, while different airlines operating between the same airports are counted separately. Also, each airport pair is counted separately, even though some cities have multiple airports supporting long-range flights (e.g. Kennedy and Newark airports serving New York City and Haneda and Narita serving Tokyo).

Direct flights with stopsEdit

A direct flight between an origin and final destination has an intermediate stop, with all segments having the same flight number and using the same aircraft. In the following table, the "Origin to final destination distance" column lists the great circle distance between the origin and final destination, excluding the stop. The "All sectors distance" column lists the total great circle distance from the origin to the stop to the final destination.
