"As the crow flies" refers to the most direct or straight-line distance between two points, without regard for obstacles or the actual path that may be taken to travel between the two points. The phrase is often used to describe the shortest distance between two places, as if a crow were able to fly directly from one place to another without interruption.
Please note: The above calculation only gives a rough estimate of the distance travelled to get an item from one capital city to another. These calculations are produced based on the average amount of CO2 emissions produced per mile and can vary depending on the type of vehicle and the specific conditions of the journey.
