About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Lal Bahadur Shastri Airport (VNS), Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India and Kanpur Airport कानपुर हवाई अड्डा کان پور ہوائی اڈا (KNU), Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India would travel a Great Circle distance of 166 miles (or 267 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 Lal Bahadur Shastri Airport and Kanpur Airport कानपुर हवाई अड्डा کان پور ہوائی اڈا, the route shown on this map most likely still appears to be a straight line.
