About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Carriel Sur International Airport (CCP), Concepción, Bío Bío Region, Chile and Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (ZGC), Lanzhou, Gansu, China would travel a Great Circle distance of 12,252 miles (or 19,718 kilometers).

A Great Circle is the shortest distance between 2 points on a sphere. Because most world maps are flat (but the Earth is round), the route of the shortest distance between 2 points on the Earth will often appear curved when viewed on a flat map, especially for long distances. If you were to simply draw a straight line on a flat map and measure a very long distance, it would likely be much further than if you were to lay a string between those two points on a globe. Because of the large distance between Carriel Sur International Airport and Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport, the route shown on this map most likely appears curved because of this reason.

Try it at home! Get a globe and tightly lay a string between Carriel Sur International Airport and Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

The distance between CCP and ZGC makes them almost exactly antipodal (the exact opposite side of the world) to each other. Nonstop flights between Carriel Sur International Airport and Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport would be very impractical for the airlines, because only a lightly loaded Boeing 777-200LR would be able to make the trip. Since airlines need to be able to take as many people and cargo as possible in order to make a profit, the odds of ever seeing a nonstop flight between CCP and ZGC are slim to none. However, you'll still be able to get from Concepción, Bío Bío Region, Chile and Lanzhou, Gansu, China by taking some connecting flights!

Did you know that one full circling of the Earth (measuring from the equator) is about 24,901.5 miles (or 40,075 kilometers), which means if you were 12,450 miles from any given point on the planet, the distance back to your starting point would be about the same -- in any direction! The same can be said for a nonstop flight between CCP and ZGC!

Facts about Carriel Sur International Airport (CCP):

  • The furthest airport from Carriel Sur International Airport (CCP) is Qingyang Airport (IQN), which is nearly antipodal to Carriel Sur International Airport (meaning Carriel Sur International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Qingyang Airport), and is located 12,360 miles (19,891 kilometers) away in Qingyang, Gansu, China.
  • The closest airport to Carriel Sur International Airport (CCP) is General Bernardo O'Higgins Airport (YAI), which is located 59 miles (94 kilometers) ENE of CCP.
  • In 2000, the original terminal building was decommissioned and turned over to the aviation authority for administrative use.
  • Because of Carriel Sur International Airport's relatively low elevation of 26 feet, planes can take off or land at Carriel Sur International Airport at a lower air speed than at airports located at a higher elevation. This is because the air density is higher closer to sea level than it would otherwise be at higher elevations.
  • In addition to being known as "Carriel Sur International Airport", another name for CCP is "Aeropuerto Internacional Carriel Sur (Concepción)".

Facts about Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (ZGC):

  • In addition to being known as "Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport", other names for ZGC include "兰州中川机场" and "Lánzhōu Zhōngchuān Jīchǎng".
  • Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (ZGC) currently has only 1 runway.
  • Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport is an airport serving Lanzhou, the capital of Gansu Province, China.

  • The furthest airport from Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (ZGC) is Carriel Sur International Airport (CCP), which is nearly antipodal to Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (meaning Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Carriel Sur International Airport), and is located 12,252 miles (19,718 kilometers) away in Concepción, Bío Bío Region, Chile.
  • The closest airport to Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (ZGC) is Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (LHW), which is located only 0 mile (0 kilometer) N of ZGC.
  • Because of Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport's high elevation of 6,388 feet, planes must typically fly at a faster airspeed in order to takeoff or land at ZGC. Combined with a high temperature, this could make ZGC a "Hot & High" airport, where the air density is lower than it would otherwise be at sea level.
