Shortest Low-cost Route?

Do you know very short routes operated by LCC?... since these routes are quite unusual for the low-cost business model.

Examples (in Europe):
Menorca - Palma, Air Berlin, 132 km
Ibiza - Palma, Air Berlin, 139 km
Belfast - Glasgow, EasyJet, 167 km
Belfast - Liverpool, EasyJet, 244 km
Dublin - Cork, Ryanair, 247 km

Can you give me any other examples?
I’m looking for the shortest route possible… you take off, reach the designated flight level for a couple of minutes... and then prepare to land… so basically just a short hop between 2 cities.

Southwest has Jacksonville-Tampa, Orlando-Ft.Myers, and Tampa-West Palm Beach. I am sure there are more, but that's off the top of my head.

Jet4u wanted to fly between LGG-CRL, but only as a stop before going back to Casablanca. Yet the Walloon government forbid them to fly this short hop of 89kms. I think they only fly CAS-CRL now.

At the bus station, buses stop. At the train station, trains stop. At my desk, I have a work station.

It is 69 NM from airport to airport....CO Express used to fly it with E145's or E135's around 5-6 times a day....now I think it is all done CO Connection with Colgan SF34's, might still be an RJ a time or to each day.

Back in the mid 80's CO flew a B721 and DC9's from IAH-BPT, some would go on to BTR others return to IAH.

I would say Air Southwest between Plymouth and Newquay must rank amongst the very shortest LCC routes  Smile

Why not? Just because they don't operate a jet? a very small LCC, but an LCC nevertheless.

Indeed, LCC doesn't always mean low prices! The PLH-NQY route can be picked up for about £30 most days right up until the flight leaves, although that is only available on one flight a day.

I'm not sure I agree with this. WN thrives on the short-haul flights; for a long time, they were WN's bread and butter. On that note...


JAX-TPA: 291 km
TPA-PBI: 281 km
BNA-BHM: 284 km
HOU-AUS: 239 km
IND-MDW: 261 km
AMA-LBB: 171 km
ALB-ISP 225 km

Add to that list GEG-SEA (224 km), GEG-PDX (279 km) and GEG-BOI (287 km). I'm sure there are many others.
