What are the longest flights in the world? A question that we encounter more and more frequently. In January 2015, I wrote about TOP 10 longest flights by plane. I think it's time to update their list.

Here the year 2016 comes with new changes in the classification of long and very long flights. After its inauguration on 1 in March 2016, the Dubai - Auckland route has become the longest in the world. On the Auckland - Dubai segment, the distance of 14193km is traveled in 17 hours and 15 minutes, without a stop. The route is operated by Boeing 777-200LR aircraft.

Those from OAG (Air Travel Intelligence) have contributed considerably to the realization of this ranking. Below you have top 15 longest flights by plane (by distance).
