Flying time from LGA to RDU

The total flight duration from LGA to RDU is 1 hour, 10 minutes.

This is the average in-air flight time (wheels up to wheels down
on the runway) based on actual flights taken over the past year.
It covers the entire time on a typical commercial flight including
take-off and landing.

If you’re planning a trip, you should also factor in extra time
for the plane to pull back from the gate and taxi to the runway,
as well as reaching the destination gate after landing. If you
include this extra time on the tarmac, the average total elapsed time
from gate to gate flying from LGA to RDU is 1 hour, 40 minutes.

Finally, pilots might want to estimate the flight time using an
average flight speed for a commercial airliner of 500 mph, which
is equivalent to 805 km/h or 434 knots. If you don’t add any extra
time to increase or decrease speed for take-off and landing, then
at constant speed your flight time would be 52 minutes.

Note that if you fly the other direction, the flight time from RDU to LGA would be 1 hour, 6 minutes due to the effect of winds and the jet stream.

If you’re booking a flight, make sure you check the scheduled
departure and arrival times. You should also factor in airport
wait times and possible equipment or weather delays.
If you’re trying to figure out what time you’ll arrive
at the destination, you may want to see if there’s a
