Airport Farthest Away From Another Airport

Tue Jan 29, 2008 6:32 am

Hey everyone,

I've read somewhere that the distance between Bermuda and Perth, Australia is considered to be the longest distance in the world when measured in nautical miles between both airports. Hence, they are also antipodes of each other (a given point diametrically opposite of each other in a sphere according to Wikipedia). Their distance is about or exactly 12,000nm. I can only imagine how long it would take to travel between both airports...lol.

Can anyone think of a distance longer then this?

These might not be longer, but do come close to 12,000nm.

From LHR I'd say its Dunedin, New Zealand.

From LAX I'd say the Mauritius Islands in the Indian Ocean.

From JNB I'd say the Hawaiian Islands.

From DXB I'd say Easter Island, Chile.

From EZE I'd say Shanghai, China.

From SCL I'd say Chengdu, China. (this one comes real close to Perth-Bermuda)

"Related Locations" . Farthest: CHT: 11869 mi / 19102 km Tuuta, Chatham Islands, NZ

This works with every IATA-code.

10766 nm you mean. Depending how small of an airport you're willing to accept, people have found pairs that are within 5 nm of the maximum possible (which is 10801 nm).
