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.
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.
