United announces ‘ultra-long haul’, 17.5 hour non-stop flights from Sydney to Houston on Dreamliners


United Airways has announced it will fly non-stop from Sydney to Houston.

At a distance of 8596 miles (13,834km), it will be the airline’s second longest flight after the Los Angeles to Singapore route launched in 2017, a route set to be the world’s longest at 17 hours and 55 minutes and at a flight distance of over 14,000km.

Title of the world’s longest flight belongs to Qatar Airways. At 14,535km, the 17-and-a-half-hour Doha-Auckland service is currently the world’s longest flight in terms of flight time after it knocked Air India’s 15,127km, 15-hour Delhi-San Francisco route off its perch.

United Airways now operates more ‘ultra-long haul’ flights than any other US carrier.

The route will be serviced by the airline’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and will commence on January 18, 2018…
