Top 10 Longest Flights in the World

Friday, September 2nd 2011. | Longest

A non-stop flight, especially in the aviation industry, refers to any flight by an aircraft which does not involve any intermediate stops. City pairs may be served using different routings on the return journey, which may therefore involve different route length and journey times. Weather conditions, particularly the direction of jet streams, also have a significant impact on the time needed to complete the journey. Below is the list of the top 10 longest flights in the world:
