The UK Treasury defined short-haul flights as those that cover less than 2000 miles in distance. HM Treasury levies Air Passenger Duty on all flights in the United Kingdom by banding by distance. A medium-haul flight is one which is defined as a flight between 3 to 6 hours. Flights between Egypt and the United Kingdom are such examples. Their flights are about 4 hour's longs. Long- haul flights are those that usually cover long distance and the aircraft have wide-bodies. The time for these flights goes beyond six and a half hours in length and are usually of course non-stop. Usually, aircraft prefer to take routes that will minimize the duration of flights. The most direct route that should be taken for long-haul flights is the great circle around the curvature of the earth. Aircraft that travel west between continents will follow paths that are going towards the Arctic region, as a result when this route is shown, it looks like a curve. The great-circle distance between airports may, therefore, give an approximation of flight length. Also, It is important for flight routes to keep in mind the weather conditions and of course the air currents. A transcontinental flight is more likely to take a more southerly route to benefit from the jet stream. . Boeing Vs. Airbus: A Battle for the Skies.
