<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance starting from Saint Albans. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Saint Albans) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Saint Albans. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Saint Albans

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Saint Albans. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.3769, Longitude: -81.8198     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Saint Albans have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

The National Flight Data Center (NFDC) is operated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with the purpose of collecting, validating and disseminating information about airports.

<5>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Saint Albans), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
