again! "are flying" is rejected.

Again! "Planes" is not accepted!

why not "everywhere", how different is it from "every direction"?

You are right "everywhere" is a more natural way of expressing this.

Wrong to say 'fly to' ?

These airplanes fly into all directions: Paris, Vienna, Tokyo. Is that ok? I think it sounds better in English...

You don't fly "into" a direction - you fly "in" the direction of ...

A plane may "fly in all directions" but it may not "fly into all directions"

If directions were tangible it would be different.

E.g. "That plane flew into Sydney yesterday" - but then it would be advisable to use "to" instead - "That plane flew to Sydney yesterday"

I think "fly to"or "into"all the directions sounds better in English. There is a movement...

"fly in all directions" is good. "fly to all directions" is OK.

There is movement in both, more so in the first.

These should be accepted:

  • These planes fly everywhere: to Paris, to Vienna, to Tokyo
  • These planes fly everywhere: to Paris, Vienna, Tokyo

"mindenfelé" makes it sound like it should be "Párizs felé, Bécs felé, Tokió felé" direction/towards

Otherwise I would expect mindenhova. destination/to
