Flying non-stop from Baton Rouge to PortlBaton Rouge and (Maine)
Now let’s assume you have a private jet and you can fly in the
fastest possible straight line between Baton Rouge, Louisiana and
Portland, Maine. 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 thefrequent flyer miles you’ll accumulate as well.
Flight distance: 1,463 miles or 2354 km
Flight time: 3 hours, 26 minutes
The straight line flight distance is 228 miles less than driving on roads, which means the driving distance is roughly 1.2x of the flight distance.
Your plane flies much faster than a car, so the flight time is about 1/8th of the time it would take to drive.
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 runBaton Rouge way, land at the other
airport, and get to your destination. Scroll down to see a more realistic calculation that takes
into account all these factors to get a more accurate estimate
of your actual flight time.

Baton Rouge to Portland (Maine) airports and flights
In the quick calculation above, we assumed you had a private
plane and just wanted to know the time in the air from city to city.
But for most of us, we’re going to be flying on a commercial airline
(whether it’s first class or coach). So that means we really need
to account for all the extra travel time getting to the airport,
waiting for our flight, and making it to the destination.
To give you a better estimate of real-life travel, we’ve
put together a flight itinerary with actual airports. Eventually
you’ll be able to customize this plan, choosing your own airports
and flights. But for now, here’s an example we’ve selected to
give you an idea of how traveling might work between airports.
Departure airport: Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (BTR)
Arrival airport: Portland International Jetport (PWM)
With the airports selected, we can estimate the travel time to and
from the airport, based on how far the airport is from downtown.
Getting to the airport: 15 minutes
Getting to your destination: 9 minutes
Now finally, let’s look at an example flight from BTR to PWM and figure out how long it would take to fly including
take-off and landing, and time to taxi on the runway.
Commercial flight time: 3 hours, 26 minutes
So now we can finally get an idea of the total travel time from
Baton Rouge to Portland (Maine) including time spent getting to/from
the airports, an estimated wait time of 2 hours at the airport for TSA
security lines and waiting at the gate, and the actual flight itself.
Total travel time: 6 hours
