Do you dream about flight training so that someday you can be the captain of an aircraft flying passengers internationally? You might be interested in testing your knowledge then….do you know what the world’s longest flights are? You might say the U.S. is a big country and so is the continent of Europe, so maybe you think it’s from Los Angeles to Paris? Or Africa is also a large continent, maybe it’s flying from London to Nairobi? If you said that, you would need to go and check your map of the world, for starters, because neither of those flights are the longest.
The longest — non-stop, of course — flights currently are from Singepore to New Jersey, U.S. It lasts about 18.5 hours and covers 9,506 miles of airspace. Another nearly as long flight is Los Angeles to Singapore, which covers 8,746 miles and lasts about 16 hours. Singapore Airlines flies both these routes.
Also, Qantas Airways flies from Dallas, Texas, U.S. to Sydney, which is about 8,565 miles. Another long flight is the 15 hour, non-stop flight from Bangkok to Los Angeles, flown by Thai Airways.
