Transatlantic flight is the flight of an aircraft or private jet across the Atlantic Ocean. A transatlantic flight may proceed east-to-west, originating in Europe or Africa and terminating in North America or South America, or it may go in the reverse direction, west-to-east. Such flights have been accomplished by fixed-wing aircraft, airships, balloons and other devices. The Atlantic Ocean stood as a significant obstacle to the aviation pioneers of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
