Air Tahiti Nui is operating a French Polynesia to Paris CDG nonstop creating the world’s longest domestic nonstop flight to beat coronavirus restrictions. The airline had been operating the flight from Papeete to Paris with a stopover at Los Angeles but is now looking at three options because new US restrictions preclude the stopover. So the airline will operate its new Boeing 787-9 with a smaller payload to enable it to perform the flight non-stop. SEE: Qatar Airways making flying safer than ever. The nonstop flight will take 16 hours and 20 minutes for the 15,715km trip.
