While we often use them interchangeably in conversation, there's one important difference between nonstop and direct flights. 

 

Direct flights may have stops at airports between your starting point and final destination, but you won't have to change planes.

 

Nonstop flights, on the other hand, are exactly what they sound like. Point A to point B with no detours in the middle. So the next time you're booking your vacation, opt for nonstop.
