Air travel is a process of going from place to place by any flying object, such as airplanes, helicopters, hot air balloons or anything that can fly.

Air travel has been a very long dream of human being from the ancient age. People seeing birds flying tried to take a flight in many ways and finally came up with balloons and machines that could fly. Air travel has added speed and cut down in travel time drastically. Today we can think of travelling around the world in 24 hours, which was never possible with any other type of transport.

Today air travel is a normal way to travel, for pleasure, personal need or business.

Air travel can be broadly put into two groups; domestic flights, and international flights. Air travel within a country are called domestic flights. Most countries have domestic airlines to provide this service. The air travel across the borders of countries are called international flights. This is generally long distance air travel.
