The coronavirus pandemic has created the world’s longest commercial flight.
An Air Tahiti Nui flight flew all the way from Tahiti, French Polynesia, to Paris, France on 14th March.
The 9,765-mile journey made it both the longest scheduled passenger flight and the longest ever domestic flight by distance.
The record flight was needed because of travel bans put in place to stop the spread of Covid-19.
This route normally has a stopover in LA, but the new travel restrictions banning all foreign nationals who have visited European countries from entering the US made this impossible.
The long flight was due to it being empty, which meant the aircraft was light enough to continue without stopping to refuel.
The aircraft was airborne for just under 16 hours.
