In what can be said as a historic moment in aviation history Australian airline Qantas is testing the world’s longest commercial flight. The flight which would be on a 20 hour non-stop journey took from New York yesterday.

The flight is a part of Qantas “Project Sunrise” during which a non-stop 20 hour-long flight from New York to Sydney would cover astonishing 16,000 kilometers in its path.

Instead of passengers 40 crew members are on board in Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with a team of researchers from Sydney Univesity to monitor the effects of such long flight on crew members.

Qantas’s test would break the Singapore Airlines’ record of a 19-hour direct flight from Newark to Singapore which is a regular on the latter’s schedule.
