As far as I know only 2 carriers do that. British Airways and Qantas. BA QF. Not even the biggest, American Airlines. By the way, all of them are OneWorld members. I am very curious about it. Please do not include codeshare services, just own network services, otherwise every airline would be a 5 continent-operator.

BA ->
NRT (Asia), CPT (South Africa), Lagos (Central Africa), DXB (Middle
East), CDG (Europe), JFK (North America), BOG (South America) MEX
(Central America) SYD (Australia)
QF ->
NRT. LAX, LHR, JNB, Auckland


LHR, BHX, EDI, BKK, USM, CNX, PHU, GRU,PEI, BOG, CTG, CPH, AMS, DOH, DXB, FRA, MAD and always PEI

MEX is not in Central America. It is in North America. Central America begins on Guatamela and Belize.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

... Not to mention that Central America is part of North America and is not a separate "continent."

United flies to Europe, Asia, Oceania, North America, South America! These are non codeshare flights only. By the way United also as a hub in Tokyo.

I think South African Airways serves all 5 continents.


Born to fly! It's more than a passion - it's a yearning!! At home in DUS(Dusseldorf)!

Cathay Pacific:
Same as Singapore Air

Japan Airlines:
Asia, Australia, North America, South America (Sao Paulo), Europe

Korean Air:
Asia, Australia, North America, Africa (Cairo), and Europe

United Airlines:
Asia, Australia, North America, South America, Europe

Lufthansa:
Europe, North America, South America, Asia, and Africa

Air France:

KLM:

Aerolineas Argentinas will even have it when they start their Beijing flights:
Europe, South America, North America, Australia (SYD), and Asia (PEK)

When Emirates starts US service (this year) they will have five: N.A., Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa

Basically, there are lots of airlines that serve at least five continents.

Sorry for the misunderstanding Eddidude. Let's say MEX, BOG, EZE, Latin America.
UAFAN17, United Doesn't fly to Africa. AOMlover, You have your point with Tahiti, however AF doesn't operate mainland Australia, that's what I meant.

Yes, Maskargo, Malaysia is definitely more unique in that it serves SIX continents. Can any other airlines match that? None that I am aware of...

ACES320, did you mean SIX continents? North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia... BA and QF are the only two that operate to SIX continents, not five. There are a fair number of carriers who operate to five. (As has been said above.) The number of airlines flying with their own aircraft and crew to SIX continents, however, is a different story. SAA is the only other one I can think of at the moment. (JFK, GRU, LHR, JNB, PER, and HKG... I think that covers all six for them.)

In addition to British Airways and Qantas, MAS, South African Airways, and Air France fly to six continents.

Keep in mind Tahiti is in Oceania, which in the US is more commonly reffered to as the continent of Australia.

OK. The geography major(yes, I know, lame major.. but it sounded good at the time) in me is just screaming! So I have to rant..



THER ARE 7 CONTINENTS!!! PLEASE do not say "ALL 5 continents!!" Your missing 2.

for review:

North America
South America
Europe
Asia(This includes Asia Minor, aka. The Arabian Peninsula.)
Africa
Australia(Oceania)
Antarctica





So now the question is.. what airline flies to the inhabited 6? Is there one that make it to all 6?? at all??

ACES320... Mexico is in North America. Why would it be in NAFTA then?

BTW, American doesn't need to fly to other places in Asia other than NRT because of QF.

PS. North, Central, and South America are all just one continent. The American continent, and it includes the Caribbean. Socioeconomic and political reasons force people to believe they are three different continents. Learn some geography people!

Ok, so there are several airlines serving all six inhabited continents: BA, MH, SA and arguably AF. Does QF fly its own planes to South America, or just codeshare? If so, add them to the list, but a codeshare shouldn't count...

Komododx, there was a long and argumentative thread on this once before. It is clearly open to debate whether North and South America are one continent or two. In the end, we concluded that it depends where you grew up. In the U.S. (and Canada I believe), we are always taught in school that they are two separate continents. And pure geography seems to back this up--they are barely attached, much less so than Europe and Asia! However, in Europe and South America, people are taught that "America" is one continent. Not sure what the justification for this is, but that's how things stand. Let's not open that can of worms again!  Smile

Oh I didn't mean to offend anyone's education, let alone start one of the typical A.net wars. But we all know why here in the U.S. they teach you it is a different continent... you wouldn't want to be born in the same continent as the guy at the Miami Mickey D's!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
