Emirates starts longest non-stop route

Beginning in February 2016, Emirates will operate the longest non-stop scheduled service flight of the world.

Lasting about 17 hours and 36 minutes a Boeing 777-200 will take up to 276 passengers and up to 15 tons of cargo from Dubai to Panama City (Tocumen International Airport) – flying westbound – and back.

The Southwest Asian airliner is growing steadily, adding other new routs as well, including to/from Orlando and Bologna.
