About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Corvo Airport (CVU), Corvo Island, Azores, Portugal and Hobart International Airport (HBA), Hobart, Tasmania, Australia would travel a Great Circle distance of 12,207 miles (or 19,645 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 Hobart International 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 Hobart International Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

The distance between CVU and HBA makes them almost exactly antipodal (the exact opposite side of the world) to each other. Nonstop flights between Corvo Airport and Hobart International 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 CVU and HBA are slim to none. However, you'll still be able to get from Corvo Island, Azores, Portugal and Hobart, Tasmania, Australia 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 CVU and HBA!

Facts about Corvo Airport (CVU):

  • The airport is situated on the southern coast of the island, at least 50 m from the water's edge, flanking the southern limit of Vila do Corvo.
  • 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.
  • In addition to being known as "Corvo Airport", another name for CVU is "Aeródromo de Corvo".
  • The closest airport to Corvo Airport (CVU) is Flores Airport (FLW), which is located only 15 miles (24 kilometers) S of CVU.
  • Corvo Airport (CVU) currently has only 1 runway.
  • Corvo Airport handled 3,839 passengers last year.
  • Aviation in the Azores
  • 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.
  • 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 Corvo aerodrome is located on the island of Corvo, one of the two volcanically stable islands that lie west of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, in the archipelago of the Azores.

Facts about Hobart International Airport (HBA):

  • Because of Hobart International Airport's relatively low elevation of 13 feet, planes can take off or land at Hobart 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.
  • Hobart Airport has two passenger terminals.
  • Public transport has not been a high use alternative to private transport for those travelling to and from the airport.
  • Hobart International Airport (HBA) currently has only 1 runway.
  • Hobart International Airport handled 1,855,849 passengers last year.
  • The development would also provide car parking for over 2,000 cars and road works will most likely be conducted on Holyman Avenue to ensure that traffic flow into the airport itself is not affected.
  • The furthest airport from Hobart International Airport (HBA) is Corvo Airport (CVU), which is nearly antipodal to Hobart International Airport (meaning Hobart International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Corvo Airport), and is located 12,207 miles (19,645 kilometers) away in Corvo Island, Azores, Portugal.
  • The landing length required at Hobart for a Boeing 747 at maximum operational landing weight is 2,400 m, a minimum runway extension of 150 m would be beneficial to the operation of the airport.
  • The closest airport to Hobart International Airport (HBA) is Launceston Airport (LST), which is located 91 miles (146 kilometers) N of HBA.
