The Fastest Flight From New York To London Was Just Flown And You Won’t Believe How Long It Took

Starting off the year with a bang, the low-cost airline Norwegian broke transatlantic records this month. On January 15th, the airline’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner made it from New York City to London in only a matter of 5 hours and 13 minutes!

Before Norwegian’s speedy flight, the previous record for fastest flight from New York City to London was set back in January 2015 by British Airways. Beating British Airways’ record by three whole minutes, passengers on board this flight made it to London over an hour earlier than originally planned.

As if the idea of going 776 mph wasn’t mind blowing enough, the pilot of the Dreamliner, Captain Harold van Dam, claims that the flight could’ve been even shorter if there wasn’t as much turbulence. Wow!
