Non-stop flight

A non-stop flight is a flight by an aircraft with no intermediate stops.


The dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 eventually opened up Russian airspace, allowing commercial airlines to exploit new circumpolar routes and enabling many new non-stop services.[1]

In the late 2000s to early 2010s, rising fuel prices coupled with economic crisis resulted in cancellation of many ultra-long haul non-stop flights.[2] As fuel prices fell and aircraft became more economical the economic viability of ultra long haul flights improved.[2]
