About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Gisborne Airport (GIS), Gisborne, New Zealand and Araxos Airport (GPA), Araxos / Patras, Greece would travel a Great Circle distance of 11,170 miles (or 17,977 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 Gisborne Airport and Araxos 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 Gisborne Airport and Araxos Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!
