Latest/Earliest U.S. Departure Times

Sat Mar 26, 2011 12:43 pm

Do any continental U.S. airports have departures in the 2:00 a.m. - 4:00 a.m range for passenger service? If not, which route has the latest departure time? And, which route has the earliest departure time?

Here at ROC, our last departure most evenings is a Capital Cargo 727 to TOL. CCI721 flies BDL-ROC-TOL-CVG every evening. It's always the last departure, leaving a little after 11:00 PM. The last passenger departure tends to vary, but is usually in the 10:00 PM hour.

The first departure most mornings is a US Airways Express CRJ-200 operated by Air Wisconsin to PHL. I believe its scheduled departure time is 5:25 or 5:30 AM. It operates as AWI3653.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, sometimes we get an arrival very late at night that is due to a delay of some sort. Also, sometimes some private aircraft fly out late at night (i.e., between 2:00 and 4:00 AM). I'm pretty sure there's a curfew and a related fine for operations during those times, but I can't confirm that as a fact.

KAL 744 tends to leave ATL for SEA around 2 or 3 am.

Thanks guys. To clarify, I am looking for the scheduled departure times of passenger flights, not cargo flights.

There are some middle of the night departures to Mexico and Central America. An LAX-GDL 2 hour redeye departing at 2:30 am is not a flight that I would book.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

LR has several from LAX to Central America, There are two or three asian carrier flights that leave LAX at 0150A, also some redeyes from LAX and SFO to DFW, MSP, ORD, DTW, MEM, & ATL between 2300-0130. Thats as late/early as I can think of. From the best of my knowledge the earliest originators leave around 0500.

US has a 12:55am flight out of DEN and I think they have something similar from PHX.

This is the same flight I thought of when I saw the thread title. There is one around that time to Zacatecas too, I think.

I've been on that one! It wasn't by choice, for my flight into LAX (from SFO) was cancelled so I was put onto the next available departure, i.e. that one. Never mind! I slept for 99% of it.

I decided to look up LAX Departures for the wee hours of the morning, and found a few:

Copa 303 to Panama departs at 2:04am
AeroMexico Connect 493 to Leon departs at 2:10am
Volaris 913 to Guadalajara departs at 2:25am


As far as arrivals, there appears to only be cargo between AirTran 61 (arrives 1:10am from Atlanta) and United 68 (arrives 4:48am from Lihue)

LAX and JFK has plenty.

From the top of my head:

KE's midnight flight to ICN leaves at 00:50
CX has a flight to HKG that leaves at 1AM.

And dozens of other international flights leave between 10PM-11:59PM

And I think Caribbean Airlines as well as AV has departures at around 2AM-3AM.
It's a cultural thing.

Well then it's not their midnight flight, it's their midnight+50 flight  

LAX has TONS of flights leaving late like that...however, only a few between 2 and 4am as the poster asks.

Ha! Great minds research schedules alike!

Using April schedules got a variation of your LAX list:


0001 NK to ACY
0001 NK to ORD
0010 BR to TPE
0010 AM to GDL
0010 AA to DFW
0020 OZ to ICN
0030 US to CLT
0030 CO to IAH
0030 DL to MSP
0035 DL to GUA
0040 NH to HND
0045 MH to TPE
0045 CO to BJX
0100 DL to GDL
0105 AA to DFW
0105 AS to GDL
0110 AM to BJX
0110 Y4 to MTY
0115 CI to TPE
0125 LR to SAL
0130 Y4 to GDL
0130 CO to IAH
0135 CX to HKG
0140 DL to MEM
0140 TA to SAL
0140 CA to PEK
0204 CM to PTY
0230 LR to SJO
0545 DL to DTW

Either way, LAX must be the King of late night flights, in the US anyway.

The thread-starter specified:

Quoting BNAOWB (Thread starter):
departures in the 2:00 a.m. - 4:00 a.m range for passenger service

Therefore, despite posting numerous departures, only the following apply.

I know the OP can glean the information he's after from the greater than 2-4am lists posted, guys!

The title is actually pretty general and he mentions a "range" of times....

So let me ask, BNAOWB, are you interested strictly in flights from 200am to 4am? And if so, why? The most rare of the rare? Or is the overnight flights in general what you were after?

cheers!

Thanks to all for your responses! I had thought that the answer would probably be no to the question "Do any continental U.S. airports have departures in the 2:00 a.m. - 4:00 a.m range for passenger service?". I, then, expected that the latest departure would be around 1:30 and the earliest departure around 4:30. So, it was interesting to learn of the very few 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. departures (to Central America and Mexico). It was also interesting to see departures from various large airports in the midnight to 6:00 range. Sorry for the ambiguity. I appreciate all the responses!

It also begs the question, what is the latest/earliest arrival?

I know back in the day, US had a PHX-LAS-AUS flight that arrived at 3:32 am. Yikes!

AC operates a YYZ-YUL sector that leaves really late (or incredibly early) depending how you look at it. AC 7784 operated by a Jazz CRJ departs YZ at 12:30am and arrives YUL 1:40am. Technically the first flight of the day for YYZ-YUL.
