“Norwind Airlines flight N4-1541, operated by tour operator Pegas Touristik, took off this October 11, becoming the longest charter flight, in terms of flight time and distance traveled, in the history of commercial aviation to the Dominican Republic,” according to a press release.
It departed from Krasnoyarsk International Airport to Punta Cana airport.
