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.

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.

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.
