About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Đà Nẵng International Airport (DAD), Da Nang, Vietnam and Rodríguez Ballón International Airport (AQP), Arequipa, Peru would travel a Great Circle distance of 12,412 miles (or 19,975 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 Đà Nẵng International Airport and Rodríguez Ballón 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 Đà Nẵng International Airport and Rodríguez Ballón International Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

The distance between DAD and AQP makes them almost exactly antipodal (the exact opposite side of the world) to each other. Nonstop flights between Đà Nẵng International Airport and Rodríguez Ballón 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 DAD and AQP are slim to none. However, you'll still be able to get from Da Nang, Vietnam and Arequipa, Peru 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 DAD and AQP!

Facts about Đà Nẵng International Airport (DAD):

  • The closest airport to Đà Nẵng International Airport (DAD) is Phu Bai International Airport (HUI), which is located 41 miles (66 kilometers) NW of DAD.
  • TransAsia Airways started service between Taipei and Da Nang in December 2009, and China Southern Airlines began service between Guangzhou and Da Nang in January 2010.
  • Đà Nẵng International Airport (DAD) has 2 runways.
  • Because of Đà Nẵng International Airport's relatively low elevation of 33 feet, planes can take off or land at Đà Nẵng 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.
  • The furthest airport from Đà Nẵng International Airport (DAD) is Rodríguez Ballón International Airport (AQP), which is nearly antipodal to Đà Nẵng International Airport (meaning Đà Nẵng International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Rodríguez Ballón International Airport), and is located 12,412 miles (19,975 kilometers) away in Arequipa, Peru.
  • After the war, the facility was used by the French Air Force during the French Indochina War.
  • During the Vietnam War, the facility was known as Da Nang Air Base, and was a major United States military base.
  • In addition to being known as "Đà Nẵng International Airport", another name for DAD is "Sân bay Quốc tế Đà Nẵng".

  • Rodríguez Ballón International Airport (AQP) currently has only 1 runway.

  • The furthest airport from Rodríguez Ballón International Airport (AQP) is Đà Nẵng International Airport (DAD), which is nearly antipodal to Rodríguez Ballón International Airport (meaning Rodríguez Ballón International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Đà Nẵng International Airport), and is located 12,412 miles (19,975 kilometers) away in Da Nang, Vietnam.
  • Its runway is fully paved.
  • Because of Rodríguez Ballón International Airport's high elevation of 8,405 feet, planes must typically fly at a faster airspeed in order to takeoff or land at AQP. Combined with a high temperature, this could make AQP a "Hot & High" airport, where the air density is lower than it would otherwise be at sea level.
