The Flight from Columbus to New York

It takes just under two hours to make the 480-mile journey from Columbus to New York by air, however the plane will only be in the air for around 80 minutes, with the rest of the journey time spent taxiing.

Rather than flying in a straight line from Columbus to New York most planes head northeast after takeoff, rather than due east, towards Lake Erie. They then follow a loop north of Pittsburgh and across to New York. This route takes you over the Allegheny Mountains and across Pennsylvania. The exact flight path will depend on weather conditions and other air traffic.

The flight is domestic, so US citizens will not need a passport, although you will need some form of photo ID to board the plane. Non-US citizens will need a passport. It is advisable to get to the airport well in advance of your scheduled departure time, especially if you will be checking in luggage. And remember that some airlines do not include bags in the ticket price, so be sure to establish whether you need to pay extra for checked suitcases and backpacks.

Columbus Airport was renamed in 2016 in honor of astronaut and US Senator John Glenn and underwent an $80m renovation. It is the second biggest airport in Ohio, with 7.5 million passengers a year and flights to dozens of destinations in the US, Canada and Mexico.

It is easy to get to the airport, which lies six miles east of downtown Columbus, close to the I-670 and I-270. There are regular buses from the city center and plenty of parking if you drive.

Once at the airport there is lots to do before you board your flight. John Glenn airport has a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops, including a PGA Tour shop for golf fans. Alternatively, you can prepare for your flight with a massage.
