Emirates Airline

The World’s Longest Flights

Cheaper fuel and more efficient planes are encouraging airlines to look again at ultra long haul flights, with Emirates Airline last month starting the world's longest between Dubai and Auckland.






ImagemOs Dez Voos Mais Longos do Mundo

No mês passado, a Emirates inaugurou a rota mais longa do mundo, da Nova Zelândia ao Dubai: mais de 14 mil quilómetros em 17 horas de voo.
Em vez de escalas consecutivas, as companhias aéreas estão a apostar em fazer voos mais longos, beneficiando dos combustíveis mais baratos e dos aviões cada vez mais eficientes em termos de consumo: ainda no mês passado, a Emirates Airlines inaugurou a viagem mais longa do mundo, entre o Dubai e Auckland, na Nova Zelândia. E o Wall Street Journal aproveitou para compilar uma lista com os dez voos mais longos no planeta, em termos de quilómetros cumpridos - porque o número de horas de voo pode variar.
