These are the lοngest direct flights in the world

The world's longest commercial flight made its debut in October 2018 operated by Singapore Airlines. Τraveling from Singapore to New York without stops lasted 18 hours and 45 minutes.

Although the plane is the safest means of transport and the chances of an accident are low, there are many who are afraid to travel with it and even longer to stay on a flight for many hours until landing at their final destination.
