Längster Passagierflug der Welt vermeidet Himmel über Russland

March 29, 2022 - Cathay Pacific Airways plant seinen New York-Hongkong Flug umzuleiten und nicht über Russland zu fliegen. Cathays Airbus A350-1000 wird rund 17 Stunden für die 16.618km lange Strecke benötigen, damit wird dieser Flug der längste Passagierflug der Welt nach Distanz.

Cathay is seeking overflight permits to operate the service, which it said was normal for a new route. Before the pandemic, which has severely reduced its schedule, the carrier operated up to three round-trips between Hong Kong and JFK daily, according to Bloomberg.

Many Asian airlines are avoiding Russia due to the conflict in Ukraine, Bloomberg said.
