Traveling by Air
Let’s pretend for a moment that you have access to a private aircraft and can travel between Key West and Key Largo in the shortest amount of time. The iterative Vincenty formula yields the “great circle” distance, or “as the crow flies,” which is the true shortest distance due to Earth’s curvature.
- Traveling by air: you’ll cover 147 kilometres (or 91 miles)
- Total flight time: 41 minutes
The driving distance is almost 1.1 times as far as the flight distance since it takes 7 miles longer to travel by road than it does by plane.
Since your jet travels at a considerably quicker speed than a car, the flight will only take roughly a third as long.
A private plane can make the trip in a short amount of time, but you might choose to take a commercial flight. In that instance, you’ll need to include in the time it takes to get to the airport, go through security, board the plane, taxi to the runway, fly to the other airport, and land at your final destination.

Getting From Key West to Key Largo, From its Airports
Assuming you have access to a private jet, we were able to quickly determine the amount of time it would take to fly from one location to another in the above computation. On the other hand, the vast majority of us will be taking a commercial flight (whether in first class or economy). This means that we must realistically include in the additional time required for getting to the airport, waiting for the aircraft, and finally arriving at our destination.
We’ve included genuine airports in the flight plan so you can get a more accurate feel for the journey. In the future, you’ll be able to alter your itinerary to your liking by picking and choosing which airports and flights to use. But here’s a case study we’ve chosen to illustrate how inter-airport travel might function for the time being.
- Terminal: Key West International Airport (EYW)
- The International Airport of Miami is the point of arrival (MIA)
We can now calculate how long it will take to get to and from the airport, taking into account the distance between the terminal and the city centre, once we have chosen our airports.
- The airport is about a four-minute drive away.
- 149 minutes until arrival at your destination.
Finally, let’s take a look at a hypothetical flight from EYW to MIA and calculate the total flight duration (including takeoff, landing, and taxiing).
- Commercial flight time: 41 minutes
Time spent getting to and from the airports, the projected two-hour wait time in TSA screening lines and waiting at the gate, and the flight itself all contribute to the overall travel time from Key West to Key Largo.
The Whole Trip will Take 5 Hours.
