How we do our flight calculations

For direct flights

For routes with direct flights we will always show the fastest possible flight duration, the average flight time and distance as well as the average amount of scheduled daily flights and information regarding local airports connecting the route. We will also show a selection of indirect flights if they are available and again provide flight times, distances and information on local airports including the connecting airports.

For non direct flights

For routes where no direct flights are flown we provide the same information on indirect routes to your destination but also calculate the expected flight time if a direct route was available. We perform a complex calculation involving average cruise speeds and flight distances and taking into account taking off and landing all based on a commercial airliner flying the chosen route.
