Qatar Airways launched their record-breaking flight to Auckland this week on Waitangi Day. At seventeen hours and thirty minutes, this is the longest commercial flight in the world. The service runs on a Boeing 777 with two class configurations, an on-demand a la carte menu, and an award-winning entertainment system. “The launch of our new service to Auckland is an important milestone for Qatar Airways as we expand both in the region and globally across our network providing more options and better connections to exciting business and leisure destinations in Europe and the Middle East,” stated H.E. Mr. Al Baker.
