Anyone know what is the furthest major airport from SYD?

By major I mean it has to have regularly scheduled wide-body service from international (i.e. not just charter) carriers.

The furthest I can come up with is SYD-TFN, which is 11,613 miles.

The furthest airport in General is SMA (Santa Maria, Azores) in the Northatlantic, it's 12,143miles away from SYD. But I doubt they get regular widebody traffic there  Wink

Or take LPMA/ FNC (Funchal). Not regular widebody traffic but you see an A330 from time to time. And there has been a B777 as well. (11,742miles)

How bout SYD-PDL. (12,119 mi)

PDL gets widebody service from SATA International on their A310's.

That's a really good one. Punching SYD-PDL into a booking system comes up with all manner of interesting routes. Depending on the day of the week, the quickest route can be via one of FRA, JNB or YYZ!

This may seem like an odd question - but I want to travel to the airport that is furthest from SYD. I tend to do a lot of odd travel things like that  Smile So next year, looks like PDL here I come!

Thx for the help

It's not very far, but I think you're right. Looking at a globe the furthest point would be somewhere in the Indian ocean between Australia and Africa.... but there's nothing but water there.

I'm not an expert, but the opposite point of the Earth are called antipodes.

This http://www.zefrank.com/sandwich/tool.html is a good indication of the opposite of SYD which is somewhere in the Atlantic
