flight time to goa from manchester?

How long is the flight to Goa from manchester? think I have pretty much decided to go in November but I am worried the flight time may be too long for my boyfriend as he is not keen on flying at all, also is there any stop offs for a re-fill at all or would the flight be direct?

A direct flight is usually 9 1/2 hours going out and about 10-11 hours coming back.

It depends on the airline you fly with as to whether or not there is a stop off on the way. I've flown with First Choice and Thomas Cook and both were direct.

The Monarch flights usually stop at Bahrain for refuelling. It's about 6 hours to Bahrain and then another 3 and a half to Goa. The flight is on the ground for about an hour but you have to leave the aircraft and re-board.

Do be careful whwen booking your holiday.

DIRECT flights are not the same as NON-STOP flights.

Non-stop is obvious - you don't stop. LOL

A direct flight can mean that you have a refulling stop in Bahrain.

Some travel agents are not clear about the difference between these two terms.

I had a frustrating conversation with a girl in a local travel agent about whether a flight to Kuala Lumpur was non-stop or direct.

She kept saying 'It's direct', but I wanted to know that it left Heathrow and didn't touch down until it got to KL.

We prefer to fly non-stop but the hour or so spent on the ground in Bahrain may be a welcome relief for your boyfriend.

The duty free is cheap there too.

We flew from Manchester with MyTravel December 06. The flight was under 9 hours and would have been less but for the fact the airport was still closed.It all depends on flight times and wht direction the winds blowing apparently. On the wayhome it was about 9 hours so we were quite lucky.
