The longest city-pair that I could find is KIX-GRU at 11,666 miles or NRT-GRU at 11,486 miles. Are there any others that are farher apart? Only major cities please.

Auckland to London is right up there as well, at 11,404 mi (although of course because it has to stop in LA, the actual mileage flown each day is 11,960 mi; or 11,683 mi via Hong Kong).

fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

Sir, don't you think we should turn on the runway lights?" "No, that's just what there expecting us to do!"

If you mean non-stop, then SIN-EWR and visa-versa are the longest,
It's 9535 mi.

with a stop over (other than the ones already mentioned)
LHR-SYD 10,672 mi (via SIN)
YYZ-SYD 9,715 mi (via HNL)

ICN -EZE a total of 12,106 Miles

Who flys that route, and is it non-stop ?


Always stand up for what is right, even if it means standing alone..

He wasn't asking about city-pairs that are actually flown, just hypothetical city pairs. Most of the ones mentioned above are not, in fact, flown, and none of them are non-stop. I guess AKL-LHR is the longest one that is actually flown, although not, of course, non-stop. Keep in mind the longest possible (great circle) route would be something like 12,500 mi or a little bit more, so 11, 404 is pretty close.


Next flight.... who knows.

All the city pairs which pretty much link antipodal (opposite) points would be the longest, however air services do not currently operate such sectors. E.g. WLG-MAD (12,335mi), EZE-PVG (12,176mi), etc

Well, I was talking about major city-pair distances not necessarily flown. JAL flies NRT-JFK-GRU 5 times a week I believe. I find it interesting that some routes that appear far on a flat map are actually not that far via the great circle route.
