The Qantas plane took off from Kennedy Airport in New York City on Friday night at 9:27 pm local time, and arrived in Sydney, Australia, at 07:42 on Sunday morning.

The Australian aircraft, a "Boeing 787 Dreamliner", took off from the US airport after a delay of about an hour and a half, and was aboard flight 7879, about 50 passengers.

During the flight of 19 hours and 16 minutes, the plane traveled about 16,200 kilometers.

"This is a historic moment for Qantas and for global aviation," said Australian Airlines managing director Alan Joyce, who was on the flight.

The journey is a practical test for passengers and crew, as researchers have tried to learn about the ability of humans to resist this tiring journey.

Airlines are trying to develop long-haul flights, with rapid growth in demand and improved aircraft performance.

The International Air Transport Association [IATA] predicts that the number of passengers will grow each year from 4.6 billion this year to 8.2 billion by 2037.

Before this flight, a commercial plane did not fly in the skies for such a long distance with a full load of passengers and goods.

To allow Qantas to break the flight hours record, the company increased the fuel supplied to the aircraft, reduced the number of passengers and baggage and no cargo.

The Australian airline also plans to test a free non-stop flight from London to Sydney, but it is expected that by the end of 2019 it will decide whether these flights will take effect.

It is estimated that these flights will probably start between 2022 or 2023.
