Didn't KLM quit this service? I remember having read an article somewhere last year about EHAM - EHBK, Maastricht-Aachen, being the last domestic flight operated in Holland, its flown I think 4x a day by KLM exel.

JER-GCI has a BLOCK time of 15-20 minutes, which includes taxiing and time for short delays. The actual flying time will be less. Aircraft from the Trilander and Dash 8 to the Shorts 360, Saab 340 and 146 fly this route.

Just a correction... There are no scheduled services between AMS and RTM... If there is a flight, it's a positioning flight. RTM-AMS is more like 55km apart, and nobody in their right mind would start scheduled service on a route that can be done in less than 40 mins by train.

Several flights between the various Croatian islands -- Losinj-Unije, for instance -- are very short. As far as I know, most are regularly scheduled services, flown with very small planes, and quite popular. Islanders get a substantial discount because this is their connection with the outside world.
I'm hoping that one of our Croatian members will be able to provide more details.

P.S. I found an article about those Losinj-Unije flights in Croatia. They were operated by an airline called North Adria Aviation, but when the article was written late last year, the flights were not oprational and it was still not clear exactly when they would resume. Apparently, the airport at Unije did not have all the documents in order, but at the time authorities were working to resolve the problem.
The article mentions that the flights, started in 1999, reduced the travel time between Unije and the larger island from 2 hours (by boat) to five minutes. That must have been (or, if the situation is now resolved, is) one of Europe's shortest scheduled flights. It was/is very popular both among locals, who paid very low state-subsidized fares, and tourists, who paid the "market price."
Here's one of the Cessnas used on the route and, I believe, the strip on Unije:
Again, if anyone from Croatia has more details, please let us know.
