Qatar airways launches World’s longest flight
06 February 2017 Current Affairs:  The Qatar Airways has launched the World’s longest scheduled commercial service to ply between Doha to Auckland.

The inaugural service of Flight QR920 took off on February 5, 2017 from Doha and will take 16 hours and 20 minutes to travel 14,535 kilometers to reach Auckland in New Zealand.

However, during the return flight, the Boeing 777 flight would take 17 hours and 30 minutes due to high-altitude winds.

This makes Qatar Airways to launch the World’s fastest and longest passenger service in terms of flying time.

Prior to this, emirates launched the world’s longest non-stop scheduled commercial flight with a service from Dubai to Auckland, spanning 14,200 kilometres.
