When Emirates makes its maiden Dubai to Panama City flight on February 1, 2016, it becomes the world’s longest non-stop commercial flight, covering a distance close to 14,000 kilometers and takes 17 hours and 35 minutes in West-bound direction.
But how does this compare with other extended non-stop commercial flights?
The World Economic Forum has an infographic about it.
The longest-ever non-stop commercial flight was Singapore Airlines Flight 21 which flew between Singapore and Newark, New Jersey until November 23, 2013. It covered a distance of 15,329 kilometers and took almost 19 hours to complete.
