Short-Haul

Updated: 2017-03-27.

Short-haul, in airline parlance, are flights where a relatively short distance is traveled. A short-haul flight is usually a domestic flight, though a flight from Boston to San Francisco would be considered long-haul. Some international flights might not be long-haul, or even medium-haul; a flight from Miami to Kingston would be considered “short haul.” Most consider a short-haul flight to be three hours or less.
