Aviation: History made at Auckland Airport Wednesday …twice! (Photo + video)

Auckland International Airport is part of history in more than just one way today after the ‘World’s Longest Flight’ landed here.

The flight, operated by Emirates, came direct from Dubai to New Zealand and flew over 14,000kms and took less than 16 hours. It’s return journey will take a staggering 17 hours and 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, Auckland Airport had another first – four of the world’s largest commercial jets in a row – the A380, all parked in a row.

A big thank you to Christopher Adams at the NZ Herald for the photo below and his coverage of this event.
