As Singapore’s non-stop Singapore (SIN) – Newark (EWR) flight comes to an end, is a new ultra-long-haul flight ready to take up the title of “World’s Longest Flight”? As per the UK Telegraph, Turkish Airlines is planning an Istanbul-Sydney route using B777-300ER aircraft that will span 8,076 nautical miles. The current champ clocks in at 8,388 nautical miles on the SIN-EWR route .
