About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Melaka International Airport (MKZ), Batu Berendam, Malaysia and José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport (GYE), Santiago de Guayaquil, Ecuador would travel a Great Circle distance of 12,289 miles (or 19,777 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 Melaka International Airport and José Joaquín de Olmedo 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 Melaka International Airport and José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

The distance between MKZ and GYE makes them almost exactly antipodal (the exact opposite side of the world) to each other. Nonstop flights between Melaka International Airport and José Joaquín de Olmedo 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 MKZ and GYE are slim to none. However, you'll still be able to get from Batu Berendam, Malaysia and Santiago de Guayaquil, Ecuador 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 MKZ and GYE!

Facts about Melaka International Airport (MKZ):

  • Because of Melaka International Airport's relatively low elevation of 40 feet, planes can take off or land at Melaka 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 airport and particularly its control tower bears historical significance as it was the same tower which guided the plane of Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, to land from London on 20 February 1956.
  • In March 2009, Mohd Ali Rustam announced that the runway extension will be completed by October 2009 after a loan of RM65 million was approved by the Federal Government.
  • Melaka International Airport handled 34,355 passengers last year.
  • The furthest airport from Melaka International Airport (MKZ) is Col. Edmundo Carvajal Airport (XMS), which is nearly antipodal to Melaka International Airport (meaning Melaka International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Col. Edmundo Carvajal Airport), and is located 12,411 miles (19,973 kilometers) away in Macas, Ecuador.

  • The construction of the new terminal and expansion of the runway was finally decided in 2003–2004, years after making the decision that the current infrastructure was not sufficient to cover the city's needs, but that it was not yet commercially viable to build an entirely new airport in the Daular area.
  • José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport was named "Best Airport in Latin America 2008 & 2009" by BusinessWeek and the second best in 2011.
  • Because of José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport's relatively low elevation of 19 feet, planes can take off or land at José Joaquín de Olmedo 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.
