There are many non-stop, long-haul flight routes between different continents in the southern hemisphere, without crossing the northern hemisphere. These routes are only possible if Earth is a sphere, and impossible if Earth is flat.
Flat-Earthers claim that all long-haul flights south of the Equator always do a stop north of the Equator. In reality, there are plenty of non-stop routes between these locations, showing that Earth is a sphere.
Some of these flights include:
- Sydney, Australia – Johannesburg, South Africa
- Sydney, Australia – Santiago, Chile
- Perth, Australia – Johannesburg, South Africa
- Auckland, New Zealand – Santiago, Chile
- Auckland, New Zealand – Buenos Aires, Argentina
- Melbourne, Australia – Santiago, Chile
- Sydney, Australia – Buenos Aires, Argentina (route no longer operational)
- Johannesburg, South Africa – São Paulo, Brazil
- Luanda, Angola – São Paulo, Brazil
We can easily verify the existence of these flight routes using any travel booking websites. Or we can search Google using a keyword like “flight from Sydney to Santiago.”
