Flying non-stop from Salt Lake City to Anaheim

How far is Anaheim from Salt Lake City? Here's the quick answer if you have a private jet and you can fly in the fastest possible straight line.

Flight distance: 581 miles or 935 km

Flight time: 1 hour, 25 minutes

Compare this to a whole day of commercial travel with the airports and waiting in line for security, which ends up taking a total of 5 hours, 12 minutes.

Flying private is roughly 5.2x faster, and saves you about 4 hours in your total travel time.

Because of the curvature of the Earth, the shortest distance is actually the "great circle" distance, or "as the crow flies" which is calculated using an iterative Vincenty formula. For a long distance, this appears as a curve on the map, and this is often the route that commercial airlines will take so it's a good estimate of the frequent flyer miles you'll accumulate as well.

This is a medium length flight, so unless you have a nice private jet, you might be booking a commercial flight. In that case, your travel time would really need to include how many minutes to get to your local airport, wait for security, board and taxi on the runway, land at the other airport, and get to your destination. The flight itinerary at the top of the page takes into account all these factors to get a more accurate estimate of your actual flight time.
