About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Mariscal Lamar International Airport (CUE), Cuenca, Ecuador and Birmingham Airport (BHX), Birmingham, England, United Kingdom would travel a Great Circle distance of 5,844 miles (or 9,405 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 Mariscal Lamar International Airport and Birmingham 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 Mariscal Lamar International Airport and Birmingham Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

Facts about Mariscal Lamar International Airport (CUE):

  • In addition to being known as "Mariscal Lamar International Airport", another name for CUE is "Aeropuerto Mariscal Lamar".
  • Because of Mariscal Lamar International Airport's high elevation of 8,306 feet, planes must typically fly at a faster airspeed in order to takeoff or land at CUE. Combined with a high temperature, this could make CUE a "Hot & High" airport, where the air density is lower than it would otherwise be at sea level.
  • The closest airport to Mariscal Lamar International Airport (CUE) is Col. Edmundo Carvajal Airport (XMS), which is located 72 miles (116 kilometers) NE of CUE.
  • The furthest airport from Mariscal Lamar International Airport (CUE) is Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (SZB), which is nearly antipodal to Mariscal Lamar International Airport (meaning Mariscal Lamar International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport), and is located 12,396 miles (19,950 kilometers) away in Subang (near Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia.
  • Mariscal Lamar International Airport (CUE) currently has only 1 runway.

Facts about Birmingham Airport (BHX):

  • Birmingham Airport is 5.5 NM east-south-east of Birmingham city centre, in the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull.
  • As part of the proposed High Speed Two rail link, a new railway station called Birmingham Interchange would be built to serve both the airport and the National Exhibition Centre.
  • The extension will increase the runway length from the present 2,605 m to 3,003 m, the main plan was to have a 150m starter extension along with the 400m extension but because the plan for the tunnel had been cancelled because of costs the runway length will be 3,050 m.There will be a loop taxiway from which planes will taxi to the runway and then takeoff.
  • Because of Birmingham Airport's relatively low elevation of 341 feet, planes can take off or land at Birmingham 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.
  • Birmingham Airport handled 9,120,201 passengers last year.
