British Airways (BA) flight has broken the record for the fastest ever between New York and London, reaching a top speed of more than 1300km/h.

The Boeing 747 aircraft flew overnight from Saturday to Sunday and reached its destination in four hours and 56 minutes, as Storm Ciara sped towards the United Kingdom.

The plane landed at Heathrow airport at 4.43am, almost two hours earlier than scheduled. Its top speed during the flight was 1327km/h.

BA confirmed the record

“We always prioritise safety over speed records, but our highly trained pilots made the most of the conditions to get customers back to London well ahead of time,” a BA spokesperson said.
