We are trying to search for an airport in Australia which is closest to Hyderabad, India and we dont know which one it is. Is there a way we could find out which International airport in Australia is closest to Hyderabad, IN ?

what do you mean by closest? the shortest geographical distance or the shortest distance/time to fly to directly/with connections? –  Vince Oct 30 '13 at 17:17

@Vince I would have assumed the shortest geographical distance would mean shortest flying time too. But to answer your question, we are looking for the shortest time to fly –  happybuddha Oct 30 '13 at 18:33

to me the difference is whether planes fly between these 2 airports. E.g. you take a random small airport, Port Hedland International Airport, it is a good candidate in terms of shortest geographical distance to Hyderabad, but that is quite useless to know that since you most likely won't be able to find a direct commercial flight. Unless you have your private jet. That's why I think your question needed this precision. –  Vince Oct 31 '13 at 9:05

Rome2Rio is your friend. You can use that service from city to city, or - as I did in this case - from country (Australia) to city (Hyderabad).

If you are fortunate enough to fly with your own plane and want to have the closest airport in terms of distance, check the Great circle mapper

According to Google, the distance from Hyderabad to Perth is 4,209 miles:

the distance from Hyderabad to Darwin is 4,122 miles:

Darwin will likely be the shortest and quickest air journey especially if flying via Singapore.

Thanks Neil. I think due to the limited flights to Darwin. The tickets are pretty expensive. I should have mentioned in the question, I was looking for the shortest and cheapest flight. –  happybuddha Nov 3 '13 at 15:47
