About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Zhongwei Shapotou Airport (ZHY), Zhongwei, Ningxia, China and Pupelde Airfield (ZUD), Ancud, Los Lagos Region, Chile would travel a Great Circle distance of 12,132 miles (or 19,525 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 Zhongwei Shapotou Airport and Pupelde Airfield, 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 Zhongwei Shapotou Airport and Pupelde Airfield. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

The distance between ZHY and ZUD makes them almost exactly antipodal (the exact opposite side of the world) to each other. Nonstop flights between Zhongwei Shapotou Airport and Pupelde Airfield 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 ZHY and ZUD are slim to none. However, you'll still be able to get from Zhongwei, Ningxia, China and Ancud, Los Lagos Region, Chile 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 ZHY and ZUD!

Facts about Zhongwei Shapotou Airport (ZHY):

  • In addition to being known as "Zhongwei Shapotou Airport", other names for ZHY include "中卫沙坡头机场" and "Zhōngwèi Shāpōtóu Jīchǎng".
  • Because of Zhongwei Shapotou Airport's high elevation of 8,202 feet, planes must typically fly at a faster airspeed in order to takeoff or land at ZHY. Combined with a high temperature, this could make ZHY a "Hot & High" airport, where the air density is lower than it would otherwise be at sea level.
  • The closest airport to Zhongwei Shapotou Airport (ZHY) is Yinchuan Hedong International Airport (INC), which is located 85 miles (137 kilometers) NE of ZHY.
  • The furthest airport from Zhongwei Shapotou Airport (ZHY) is Carriel Sur International Airport (CCP), which is nearly antipodal to Zhongwei Shapotou Airport (meaning Zhongwei Shapotou Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Carriel Sur International Airport), and is located 12,324 miles (19,834 kilometers) away in Concepción, Bío Bío Region, Chile.

  • The closest airport to Pupelde Airfield (ZUD) is Mocopulli Airport (MHC), which is located 30 miles (49 kilometers) S of ZUD.
  • Because of Pupelde Airfield's relatively low elevation of 375 feet, planes can take off or land at Pupelde Airfield 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.
