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


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]
