Longest flights from the US – Houston to Sydney

The nonstop flight going from Houston’s IAH to Sydney’s SYD airport is a very long one at 17 hours and 35 minutes with a distance of 8587 miles one way. Operated by United on 787-9 metal, the flight departs IAH at 8:25pm and arrives into Sydney at 7:00am two days later. The next post covers a flight from America which is even farther than this one.

I really enjoyed my last visit to Australia. Being able to take one of the longest flights out of the USA is cool, and since English is spoken in Sydney, it is especially easy for Westerners to get around.
