About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (LHW), Lanzhou, Gansu, China and Aswan International Airport (ASW), Aswan, Egypt would travel a Great Circle distance of 4,222 miles (or 6,795 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 Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport and Aswan 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 Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport and Aswan International Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

  • The furthest airport from Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (LHW) is Carriel Sur International Airport (CCP), which is nearly antipodal to Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport (meaning Lanzhou Zhongchuan Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Carriel Sur International Airport), and is located 12,252 miles (19,718 kilometers) away in Concepción, Bío Bío Region, Chile.
