Longest Non-Stop From Your Local Airport

Thu Mar 18, 2004 7:25 am

What is the longest scheduled, passenger-carrying non-stop flight from your local airport? Include origin, destination, flight time, and Great Circle Mapper distance- go to http://gc.kls2.com.If applicable, include the longest domestic, and longest international flights, please. If you live in a metro area, such as NYC, include all of the airports in the area (LGA, JFK, EWR).

Here in wonderful Syracuse, our longest scheduled passenger flight is on Delta/Delta Connection. Both offer non-stop service, SYR-ATL. It's 793 miles, according to Great Circle Mapper, and around 2:15 non-stop.
If you include the charter carriers, TransMeridian wins, hands down. Non-stop SYR-LAS, at 2119 miles, and around 4:30 flight time. What's better than SYR-Sin City non-stop on a good old B727-200? I don't think there are many things around here that beat that...

I believe that would be Continental's EWR-HKG, with SAA's JFK-JNB a close second. Longest domestic must be Continental's EWR-HNL.

It used to be TLV - LAX, now either TLV - HKG or TLV - JFK. Maybe TLV - YYZ, since it is flown on 767 as opposed to 777 and 744 to NYC.

I'm also from EWR with CO's EWR-HKG and SQ's soon-to-be EWR-SIN. How long is SQ's flight scheduled at? I would think that it would have to be at least 18 hours.

Interesting -- both AUS-SFO (United) and AUS-EWR (Continental) are exactly 1504 miles:



And AUS-SFO, one of the two longest routes from AUS, is on an RJ!

This summer from EDI it will be TS and TCX to YYZ, when the summer timetable ends it'll be CO to EWR.
Longest domestic will be either EDI to SOU or Exeter on FlyBE I'd say. Oh, it'll be Jersey on BMI and BA. If you class that as domestic.

MHT-LAS is MHT's longest flight...next longest would be MHT-MCI.

BOS-MUC is BOS' longest flight, but this flight operates summer-only. During the winter, BOS-MXP on AZ takes the cake.

From MEX the longest regularly scheduled non-stop flight at the moment is LH's MEX-FRA. That is so sad. It used to be El Al's MEX-TLV.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

Hey guys!
The longest continental US domestic flight is also the longest domestic flight from Miami. MIA-SEA served by Alaska Airlines Flight 17 with a total time of six hours and a half and a distance of 2724 mi.
International flights are kind of weird because we only goto Western Europe. The longest flight is MIA-HEL with Finnair flight 34 with a total time of nine hours in a half with a total distance of 5184 mi.

The longest one stop scheduled flight is AA153 MIA-NRT with a one hour stop in Chicago, a total distance flown of 7471 mi. and a flight time of seventeen hours and a half.

Happy flying!

Before Nov. 1st of last year, the two longest flights out of STL were STL-HNL and STL-LGW. Now that the two have been cut, it is hard to say which is the longest, because STL is halfway in between the East and West Coast, and those are the two longest areas operated to from STL. Can anyone clarify for me the longest flight out of STL? Thanks.

MIA-ORD-NRT is same flight number, but change of plane.

Longest same-plane flight out of MIA is El Al's MIA-EWR-TLV at 6777mi. During the summer, when MIA-HEL does not operate, longest is MIA-MXP at 4931mi.

International flights are kind of weird because we only goto Western Europe.

Huh? We have long-hauls to deep South America and Scandanavia (the latter which you pointed out).

BHM-LAS is the longest nonstop from Birmingham on Southwest. Total distance using the great circle mapper is 1618 miles. Flight time is 4 hours and 10 minutes. Not a bad trip on Southwest, I did it last month and brought McDonald's on and a really nice trip.

From IAH, it's NRT on CO.

Longest non-CO flight would be IAH-AMS on KL, just a bit longer than AF's IAH-CDG I believe.

Thanks PanAm330

So the longest route from CAI is on Egyptair's CAI-NRT route, which is 5973 miles.

Next year when Egyptair starts flying on the CAI-HOU route, it will become the longest, with 7032 miles.

Let me make a few corrects:

COAB767....SEA-AMS is not even close to the longest from Seattle. I found SEA-TPE on EVA. 6,058mi 12hr 55mn

Redngold....CLE-SEA/LAX are close but SFO has them beat. 2.157 miles 5hr 18m

Longest I have found from SFO is United SFO-SYD..7,436 mi 14h 25mi....that the longest distance. Longest in scheduled block time is Cathay Pacific SFO-HKG 6,915mi but 14hr 45 min block most likely due to headwind being stronger then on the United Sydney flight. Please correct me if you find farther flight out of SFO. Not including are soon to be announced Dubai service.

The longest non-stop from Kuala Lumpur International (KUL) is to Manchester, England (MAN) which is 6640 mi, a journey which takes 14 hours.

The longest non-stop with Malaysia Airlines actually doesn't even involve KUL. The 2 longest routes are :-

Dubai - Newark 6861 mi
(part of KUL-DXB-EWR)

Taipei - Los Angeles 6799 mi
(part of KUL-TPE-LAX)

Actually, isn't the longest flight within the United States CO's Flight 15 from EWR-HNL? I believe that it's scheduled with a 764 with a flight time of 11 hours - beats SEA-MIA by a wide margin.
