Longest Flight Routes in the World

A list of longest flights in the world. This list includes non-stop scheduled passenger flight routes.

Along with the development of new and efficient aircraft, non-stop long distance flights are now possible which would earlier involve multiple stops at different airports.

Many airlines now operate such non-stop flight routes which are upward of 10,000 miles and take more than 15 hours.
