Have you ever wondered how many flights operate around the world in a day? According to the latest estimates, if passenger, cargo and military aircraft are counted, one lakh flights take off and land around the world every day. Remember, this is not talking about one lakh ships because domestic ships do more than one operation in a day. If you think this number is high, just imagine that there are 13 thousand 513 airports in the United States alone. So how many airports will there be in more than 200 countries around the world and how many flight operations are possible there? Commercial airlines usually fly at an altitude of 36,000 feet. While the safe height limit has been declared as 42 thousand feet. 42,000 feet is called the ceiling height, which means not to take the plane above it.

The answer is that at higher altitudes less petrol is required due to lower air pressure
