Q: With today’s speedy means of transport, can an adult female travel between cities without a mahram where the flight time is less than 2 to 3 hours?
A. The criterion is not the time it takes to travel but the distance travelled, and that distance according to the Jurists is approximately 77.7 km.
Allah Ta’aala knows best.
