Qantas has set the record for the longest ever flight on an A380 Airbus from Dresden, Germany to Sydney, Australia. The flight took 18 hours and 26 minutes to complete. This was a non-commercial flight without passengers or cargo on it. The company operated two flights from New York to Sydney and another from London to Sydney to research if the 18+ hour journey would be practical.
Australian airline, Qantas Airways set a record of longest non stop flight i.e. 19 hours and 16 minutes from New York City to Sydney under a project. During the research, pilots’ brain waves, alertness and efficiency were monitored. For further research, two additional flights will be carried out as part of the airline’s effort while carrying out long flights, as the final decision is expected at the end of this year.
