About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Corvo Airport (CVU), Corvo Island, Azores, Portugal and Apolo Airport (APB), Apolo, La Paz, Bolivia would travel a Great Circle distance of 4,463 miles (or 7,183 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 Corvo Airport and Apolo 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 Corvo Airport and Apolo Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

Facts about Corvo Airport (CVU):

  • Because of Corvo Airport's relatively low elevation of 62 feet, planes can take off or land at Corvo 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.
  • The closest airport to Corvo Airport (CVU) is Flores Airport (FLW), which is located only 15 miles (24 kilometers) S of CVU.
  • In addition to being known as "Corvo Airport", another name for CVU is "Aeródromo de Corvo".
  • In 2009, with the addition of new De Havilland Dash 8-Q200 to the SATA Air Açores fleet, to replace the existing Dornier Do 228, there was a comparable increase in passenger traffic to the island.
  • The furthest airport from Corvo Airport (CVU) is Flinders Island Airport (FLS), which is nearly antipodal to Corvo Airport (meaning Corvo Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Flinders Island Airport), and is located 12,381 miles (19,926 kilometers) away in Flinders Island, Tasmania, Australia.
  • Corvo Airport is an airport in the village of Vila do Corvo on the island of Corvo, in the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores.
  • Corvo Airport (CVU) currently has only 1 runway.
  • Aviation in the Azores
  • Corvo Airport handled 3,839 passengers last year.

Facts about Apolo Airport (APB):

  • Apolo Airport (APB) currently has only 1 runway.
  • The furthest airport from Apolo Airport (APB) is Phu Cat Airport (UIH), which is nearly antipodal to Apolo Airport (meaning Apolo Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Phu Cat Airport), and is located 12,254 miles (19,720 kilometers) away in Qui Nhơn, Binh Dinh, Vietnam.
  • In addition to being known as "Apolo Airport", another name for APB is "Apolo Airport (Apolo)".
  • Because of Apolo Airport's high elevation of 4,642 feet, planes must typically fly at a faster airspeed in order to takeoff or land at APB. Combined with a high temperature, this could make APB a "Hot & High" airport, where the air density is lower than it would otherwise be at sea level.
  • The closest airport to Apolo Airport (APB) is Rurrenabaque Airport (RBQ), which is located 64 miles (103 kilometers) ENE of APB.
