    Length of journey in air, made by plane?

    Solomon Airlines flies from Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea) to Nadi (Fiji) via
    Honiara (Solomon Islands) and Port Vila (Vanuatu) on the following schedule:
    Depart Stage Arrive
    1310 Port Moresby - Honiara 1620
    1710 Honiara - Port Vila 1900
    1940 Port Vila - Nadi 2210
    All times listed are local times in each country. However, Fiji is one hour ahead of
    Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, and these two are one hour ahead of Papua New
    Guinea. How long is the plane in the air for the full journey from Port Moresby to Nadi?

    Help would be appreciated

    Convert all the times to one local time, then add up the hours.

    Find the time elapsed between departure from Port Moresby and arrival at Nadi; subtract the total time spent on the ground.
