Longest Routes For A320 Family Aircraft?

Wed Jul 23, 2003 2:34 am

What is the longest regularly scheduled, non-charter route for the A319, A320, and A321? US Airways has operated the A319 and A321 on PHL-SFO(2,191nm) and Jetblue operates the A320 on JFK-OAK(2,238nm). Can anybody come up with A320 routes that are longer than these?

JetBlue's JFK- West Coast routes (especially OAK) have to be some of the longest as they are really at the limits of the A320's range.

But the A319 has a slightly further range. On my honeymoon, I flew BDL (Hartford) - SFO on a Untied A319. Obviously that is a few miles more than JFK-OAK, but not many.

Were there any BOS-SFO routes or anything like that with an A319?

I believe that one of the longest regularly scheduled routes for an A320 Family plane is a regular flight from a Detroit area airport to Sttutgart flown by a A319CJ owned by the DaimlerChrysler Corporation.

Amadeus.net says LH FRA-ALA is an A310, but if it is an A320 it's a contender.

I think the last time this was discussed nobody beat LHR-THR. (Except for those Privatair or whoever flights which are sort of a separate category.)

AC operates their A319 YYZ-GND
US operates their A319 PHL-GND

Both are turnaround flights and refuel in GND.

The longest are two regularly scheduled charter flights, one from Lisbon to Sao Tome (SSG) and another from Vilnius to Tenerife. I may have the city pairs wrong but I have the general regions correct. Both are around 3000+ miles.

UA- these are also long A320 routes
ORD-SJU (5:20- 2,072 miles)


I believe TAM at one time had BSB-MAO-MIA-MAO-BSB with the A320 (If I recall correctly)

Yes, Chepos ! TAM started flying BSB-MAO-MIA with A332s and later switched the gauge to A320s until the route was discontinued.

Among the longest, you have a TACA-Peru flight GRU-LIM-CCS daily with A319s, and TAM's nonstop GRU-NAT with A320s.

At one time there was also a VARIG/ECUATORIANA/LACSA A320 flight from GRU to San Jose C.R. via Quito.

Qatar are planning (don't know if they've started yet) to use their 319LR from Doha to Moscow as a seed service, hoping to build up pax so they can use a 330.

The ranges of the 737NG and the A320 family aircraft I believe are nearly identical. I think they have the same cruise speed as well.

I think one of the longest routes could be San Jose, CR to Los Angeles in a Taca A-319, that route is more than six hour flight.

I cannot belive no one is stating distance for this trips...

So I am writing all routes included in this thread with their distances. As you can see, the longest scheduled flight with a A320 (family) is: DUS-ORD (6.807km). Yeah. I know, it is a special flight... The second longest without doubt would be: FRA-ALA (5.106km)

DUS-ORD (6.807KM)
FRA-ALA (5.106KM)
MIA-YVR (4.507KM)
LHR-THR (4.424KM)
SJO-LAX (4.380KM)
MBJ-LAX (4.358KM)
LIS-SSG (4.299KM)
MEX-LIM (4.231KM)
BDL-SFO (4.224KM)
LHR-BAK (4.012KM)
MEX-YVR (3.941KM)
YYZ-GDN (3.920KM)
MAO-MIA (3.865KM)
SHA-SIN (3.775KM)
ORD-AUA (3.699KM)
GRU-LIM (3.477KM)

Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

Dear Pzurita1,

How did you calculate the distances? You're right: all the examples that have been given are of little use if no distances are stated. I'd appreciate a reply if at all possible,
