About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Boston, Massachusetts, United States and Rottnest Airport (RTS), Rottnest Island, Western Australia, Australia would travel a Great Circle distance of 11,636 miles (or 18,727 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 Boston Logan International Airport and Rottnest 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 Boston Logan International Airport and Rottnest Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

Facts about Boston Logan International Airport (BOS):

  • Runway 14/32 opened on November 23, 2006, Logan's first major runway addition in more than forty years.
  • There was fierce opposition to the construction of 14/32 among communities adjacent to the northwest side of the airport, such as Chelsea and East Boston, as authorities acknowledged that these areas would likely see a slight increase in noise levels.
  • Because of Boston Logan International Airport's relatively low elevation of 20 feet, planes can take off or land at Boston Logan 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.
  • ILS is available for runways 4R, 15R, 22L, 27, and 33L, with runway 4R being certified for CAT III Instrument Landing operations.
  • Boston Logan International Airport handled 3,021,863 passengers last year.
  • The closest airport to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is Norwood Memorial Airport (OWD), which is located only 15 miles (24 kilometers) SW of BOS.
  • Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) has 6 runways.
  • The furthest airport from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is Margaret River Airport (MGV), which is located 11,767 miles (18,937 kilometers) away in Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia.

  • MacRobertson Miller Airlines took over services after Wood's Airways using both DC-3 and Fokker F27 Friendship, until the route became uneconomical.
  • Because of Rottnest Airport's relatively low elevation of 12 feet, planes can take off or land at Rottnest 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.

Wade International Airport (BDA), which is nearly antipodal to Rottnest Airport (meaning Rottnest Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from L.F. Wade International Airport), and is located 12,409 miles (19,970 kilometers) away in Ferry Reach (near Hamilton), Bermuda.
