Qatar Airways to launch longest flight from Doha to New Zealand

Published on : Thursday, January 28, 2016

Airbus-A350-Qatar-AirwaysQatar Airways is planning on the world’s longest journey, a  direct flight from  Doha, Qatar, and Auckland, New Zealand, which is said to cover a 181/2 hours of long flight set on a  new route.

 

The plans were revealed at the Bahrain Air Show, where the airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said that a Boeing 777-LR aircraft would be completing this formidable journey carrying 259 passengers.

 

 

Qantas holds the dubious distinction of conducting the world’s longest flight between Dallas-Fort Worth and Sydney which is at 16 hours and 55 minutes (8,577 miles/13,804 km), 9,034 miles/14,539 km short of the proposed Qatar Airways flight.

 

Emirates Airline too has announced the launch of its Dubai to Panama City, Panama flight that would cover a 17hours 35 minutes journey. In 2013 Singapore Airlines took 19-hour flights between New York and Singapore but was later forced to stop the flight in this route.
