Voo mais longo do mundo para evitar espaço aéreo russo
March 29, 2022 - A Cathay Pacific Airways tenciona propor nova rota para a ligação Nova Iorque-Hong Kong para evitar os céus russos, no que seria o mais longo voo comercial de passageiros no mundo – cerca de 17 horas para voar 16.618km.
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.
