Doesn't DCX use a 320 for its flights PTK-STR

That's an A319CJ, I believe. So it has the bigger fuel capacity.

Maybe not the longest, but its pretty long...

MAN-SSH - 2555 nm
MAN-HRG - 2578 nm

The route is mostly now flown by the 757's and 767's!  Smile

I though that YYZ-LAX on an A320 (courtesy of AC) was pushing it, but I guess not.

I think it's somewhere around 4 hours and a bit (gate-to-gate).

I know that the longest route flown by LH�s A32X fleet is from Frankfurt to Moscow at least I was told so by a LH A320 Co Pilot.


It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

At nearly 2800nm, this is most likely done with a stop

I seem to remember that CKT operated the A320 to Goa in India, but im not sure if that was non stop. I read it in their inflight magazine High Life. There was a feature on the head captain of the A320 fleet and he said how it was such a versatile airliner as it was happy flying short hops to ALC and back as it was stretching its legs on longer flights to the Canaries and beyond.

IIRC - CP at one time (mid 1990s) had an insanely long flight out of YVR to somewhere in Central America using the A320, flight time was over 6 hrs. I know this topic came up about five years ago but I couldn't find. Can anyone else remember this one?

This route was formerly operated by a 767 and I still believe this was the right solution to the actual situation: A320, most of the time overbooked, lots of problem with baggage (many times up to 30 bags remains on ground...) and very poor chances to load a single kg of cargo (in spite of a very high demand, on both ways).  crowded 

For me this is a typical aviation mystery...  Confused

SFO-MEX is only 1635nm, quite a bit shorter than some of the other flights mentioned here.

As ever, http://gc.kls2.com/ is the best site for working out any of these distances...

YYZ to LAX is more like five hours gate to gate, I did it the other week. About four hours forty in the air, which is the same as my previous long A320 flight, British Mediterranean's London Heathrow to Beirut flights, now double daily in BA colours.

I think Swiss Sun flow once ZRH-LOS with their A320 ... But it wasn't a regular Flight
It was a Deportation flight with about 50 pax and for sure no cargo

Found another one
