Emirates: 14,000km in the Shortest Time

Emirates’ new flight between Dubai and Auckland is one of the world’s longest air routes by distance, however, through innovative measures,

passengers get to their destination in the shortest possible time.

While the 14,000km itinerary would normally take just under 16 hours from the airline’s base to New Zealand, and over 17 hours in the other direction, Emirates is using flexible routes, which can vary by day, in order to take full advantage of tail winds and avoid head winds, thus, significantly reducing the time in the air.

The recently-launched service is operated by Boeing 777-200LR aircraft.
