If the years 2020 and 2021 were not easy for anyone, aviation, in particular, would have experienced an unprecedented shake-up in history. Now, with air restrictions being lifted around the world, the long-running aviation market is back on its feet.

List of scheduled flights Non-stop Currently the most extensive on the planet has undergone subtle changes since the beginning of this slow recovery, but the United States remains the main destination: of the ten longest planes, nine are on the land of Uncle Sam. The relationship was raised by Sino-Australian Sam Chui, one of the world’s best aerial photographers and creator of popular travel content.

Singapore and the United States dominate. Australia and New Zealand are disappearing

Asian Singapore Airlines follows in the top two spots on the platform of mega flights. Asian Airlines’ SQ-23 flight between the United States and Singapore and New York will last for 19 hours without interruption. However, there are some changes in the profile of the lead process Ranking While not a groundbreaking contribution to the genre, Passenger impresses with its straightforward tough-guy style.

After a gap of almost eight months in 2020 due to an epidemic, the airline relocated Newark Airport in neighboring New Jersey to the popular JFK. There was also a change from the aircraft’s standard aircraft: the Airbus A350 ULR came out to enter the A350-900, which had a higher cargo capacity.

The plane crosses the North Pole and crosses the planet via a polar path, reducing the distance between the two cities to 15,323 km. To reduce the inconvenience of passengers spending about 20 hours in the air, this model has been modified to a slightly wider economy class just like the services. Premium Of other companies.

Singapore currently ranks second on this list. SQ37 connects the Asian city-state with Los Angeles on the west coast of the United States. It covered a distance of about 14,144 km in 17 hours and 50 minutes. The A350-900 has been a standard aircraft since the first flight of this route in November 2018.

Third place runs 400 km from LAX departing from San Francisco. Air India AI176 connects California with Bangalore, South India. In January 2021, the aircraft became operational at the height of the Govt-19 epidemic. The Indian company uses the Boeing 777-200 to fly 14,000 km in an average of 17 hours and 40 minutes.

The main difference from the current extreme long-haul flights with the pre-epidemic period is the absence of the Australia and New Zealand rankings. Together, the two countries in Oceania occupy five of the planet’s ten largest airlines. However, countries have adopted some of the world’s strictest travel restrictions and have recently opened borders to vaccinated foreign travelers, resulting in the exclusion of major planned international flights.
