How fast do passenger airplanes travel?
Early Air Travel Very early flights for passengers were usually for pleasure rather than travel. It was such a novelty! As far as I know, t…he first scheduled flights for the public began to operate in about 1912, but only over short distances. Anything much more than 30 miles or so was rare at that stage. Austria claims to have been the first country to have had regular scheduled long-distance air services. Apparently they started to operate early in 1918 on the route Vienna - Krakow (now in Poland) - Lviv (now in the Ukraine). In 1918 these places were all in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Unfortunately, I don't have the mileage, but the distances would have run to some hundreds of miles. NOTE. Please check this, as it seems very early for the kind of distances. In the early days, flights seldom operated every day of the week and air travel was very expensive. Some years years ago I saw a replay of a film made in 1938 (so on eve of WW2) by British Imperial Airways of a flight from London to Bombay (now Mumbai) and Delhi, both then in British India. From what I remember the journey took three days. The passengers spent each night on the ground at a hotel and all dressed up terribly elegantly for dinner. :)
No airplane goes faster than the speed of sound wich is 1000km per hour due to safety reasons.
Generally it depends on the weight of the airplane. Light airplane like Cessna 172 can take off at about 60mph, heavy airplane like Boeing 747 needs 180mph to get airb…orne! * Speeds vary depending on type of aircraft, weight, and enviromental conditions. Takeoff speeds are referred to as "V1" and "V2". V2 is the speed at which the aircraft can safely become airborne. V1 is the "point of no return" during a takeoff. In other words, if an aircraft experiences a problem at a speed below V1, the aircraft may safely abort takeoff. If the speed is above V1, the aircraft will in most circumstances commence with takeoff regardless of a problem.
A typical commercial aircraft will travel at around 35,000 feet and will be moving at an airspeed of roughly 500-550 miles per hour, depending on the plane.
Commercial airplanes typically travel around 550 (five hundred and fifty) miles per hour. They are able to travel and slower or faster speeds, however.
it depends what kind of aircraft you fly
Different planes travel at different speeds. They range from aprox. 280 mph to 2200 mph. Here's a record chart. Insect. Australian Dragonfly 36 mph (58 km/h) n/a . Bir…d (level flight).

The DC-3 remained the primary commercial carrier until the introduction of the Boeing 707 in 1958, and the 707 ruled the airways for the next 20 years. …Answer While the DC-3 was certainly very popular due to the large number built during the war, the DC-7, DC-7, Lockheed Constellation, and the Lockheed Electra were the "state of the art" prop and turbo-prop aircraft just prior to the advent of the pure jet transport.
From 28,000 to 33,000 feet.
Somewhere around 100 knots or approx 100 mph. While actual take off speed varies according to a number of factors, such as aircraft weight and density altitude, typicall…y, a large transport type jet such as the B767 would rotate somewhere between 140 to 160 knots. It takes about 3 steps to take off 1. V1(190knots) 2. V2(195knots) 3.Rotate(200knots), and take off
Gulfstream V can make the trip in 1:06 a lot of comercial airlines fly bangkok to chiangmai thailands second city flights take just over the hour costs around 50 USD chiangma…i has many good quality hotels and guest houses to suit all budgets and many flights arrive and depart each day to both bangkok airports chiangmai is very popular with tourists and expats
He has to travel at more than 760mph.
At 550 miles per hour, it would be .15 miles per second.
35 miles an hour
About 670 million miles per hour... which would never happen
