About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Shimla Airport (SLV), Simla, Himachal Pradesh, India and Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL), Delhi, India would travel a Great Circle distance of 174 miles (or 279 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 relatively short distance between Shimla Airport and Indira Gandhi International Airport, the route shown on this map most likely still appears to be a straight line.

Facts about Shimla Airport (SLV):

  • The furthest airport from Shimla Airport (SLV) is Mataveri International Airport (IPC), which is located 11,961 miles (19,249 kilometers) away in Easter Island, Chile.
  • Because of Shimla Airport's high elevation of 5,072 feet, planes must typically fly at a faster airspeed in order to takeoff or land at SLV. Combined with a high temperature, this could make SLV a "Hot & High" airport, where the air density is lower than it would otherwise be at sea level.
  • Shimla Airport (SLV) currently has only 1 runway.
  • In addition to being known as "Shimla Airport", another name for SLV is "शिमला हवाई अड्डा".
  • The closest airport to Shimla Airport (SLV) is Chandigarh Airport (IXC), which is located 33 miles (53 kilometers) SSW of SLV.

Facts about Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL):

  • The closest airport to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) is Agra Airport (AGR), which is located 110 miles (178 kilometers) SSE of DEL.

  • T3 has India's first automated parking management and guidance system in a multi level car park, which comprises 7 levels and a capacity of 4,300 cars.
  • Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) has 3 runways.
  • Because of Indira Gandhi International Airport's relatively low elevation of 777 feet, planes can take off or land at Indira Gandhi 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.
