“Panama City will be our first destination gateway in Central America, providing a convenient option for our passengers travelling from or through our global hub in Dubai and onward to destinations throughout Central America, the Caribbean and the northern part of South America,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline.

Currently the longest flight connects Dallas and Sydney and is operated by Qantas. Emirates’ flight will traverse 13,821 kilometers (8,590 miles) and according to the Great Circle Mapper it’s longer than Quantas’ route by 17km.
