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

History[edit]

The dissolution of the Soviet Union eventually opened the airspace over Russia, allowing new circumpolar routes to come into use for commercial airlines which enabled a lot of new non-stop services.[1]

In the late 2000s/early 2010s, skyrocketing 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]
