Travelmath provides an online flight distance calculator to get the distance between cities. You can also compare all types of locations including airports, cities, states, countries, or zip codes to find the distance between any two points. The database uses the latitude and longitude of each location to calculate distance using the great circle distance formula. The calculation is done using the Vincenty algorithm and the WGS84 ellipsoid model of the Earth, which is the same one used by most GPS receivers. This gives you the flying distance "as the crow flies." Find your flight distances quickly to estimate the number of frequent flyer miles you'll accumulate.
