The longest flight in the world
Singapore Airlines is set to launch the world’s longest flight in October, with a flight duration of almost 19 hours, from Singapore to New York, USA.
The longest flight in the world will travel as long as 15,329 kilometers, from Singapore to the Newark area of New Jersey, with about 161 seats reserved for business class only.
The longest flight in the world was through Qatar Airways, from Doha to Auckland, where the journey was 7843 miles, in 17 hours 40 minutes.
Airlines are looking for new sources of revenue in a competitive environment, while long-haul flights often earn more than those that require downtime.
