About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Arlington County, Virginia (near Washington, D.C.), United States and Perth Airport (PER), Perth, Western Australia, Australia would travel a Great Circle distance of 11,564 miles (or 18,610 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 Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Perth 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 Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Perth Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

Facts about Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA):

  • Terminal A opened in 1941 and was expanded in 1955 to accommodate more passengers and airlines.
  • Although the need for a better airport was acknowledged in 37 studies conducted between 1926 and 1938, there was a statutory prohibition against federal development of airports.
  • Service to the airport's Metro station began in 1977.
  • Because of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport's relatively low elevation of 15 feet, planes can take off or land at Ronald Reagan Washington National 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 Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) is Margaret River Airport (MGV), which is located 11,682 miles (18,800 kilometers) away in Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia.
  • The airport is southwest of Washington, D.C.
  • After the attacks, the airport was closed for several weeks, and security was tightened when it reopened.
  • On March 23, 2011, the air traffic control supervisor on duty reportedly fell asleep during the night shift.
  • The Washington National Airport Terminal and South Hangar Line were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
  • The closest airport to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) is Bolling Air Force Base (BOF), which is located only 1 miles (2 kilometers) ESE of DCA.

Facts about Perth Airport (PER):

  • The airport only received international status and was renamed to Perth International Airport in 1952.
  • Because of Perth Airport's relatively low elevation of 67 feet, planes can take off or land at Perth 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 removal of the steel structure made way for the construction of an entirely new combined domestic and international passenger terminal, constructed on the northern side of the airfield.
  • The closest airport to Perth Airport (PER) is Jandakot Airport (JAD), which is located only 12 miles (19 kilometers) SSW of PER.
  • In the late 1980s the Federal Government, as a prelude to eventual privatisation, formed the Federal Airports Corporation.
  • It is the fourth busiest airport in Australia and services Australian and Indian Ocean destinations, as well as Johannesburg, Auckland, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Guangzhou and Doha.
  • Perth Airport (PER) has 2 runways.
  • In 2012, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission released a report rating the Perth Airport as the worst in Australia, as judged by airlines.
  • From 1962 onwards, both the domestic and international passenger operations at the airport were provided by a single terminal.
  • Towards the mid-1950s, airline travel was still only being used by a small percentage of the population.
  • The furthest airport from Perth Airport (PER) is L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA), which is nearly antipodal to Perth Airport (meaning Perth Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from L.F. Wade International Airport), and is located 12,389 miles (19,938 kilometers) away in Ferry Reach (near Hamilton), Bermuda.
  • The move was agreed to by the government of the day, as the larger types of aircraft of the day being operated by the two airlines could simply not be handled at Maylands, notwithstanding the small grass airfield, lack of passenger facilities, and approaches being difficult due to surrounding industrial infrastructure.
  • Perth Airport handled 13,664,394 passengers last year.
