what would that be?
I Know KLM or Transavia fly Rotterdam - Amsterdam . The distance between the 2 airports would be something like 90 kilometres.

But this could be for transavia to get one of their carriers to Schiphol or so?

Wow... and I thought MUC-NUE is short... 3 daily LH flights, two on ATRs operated by EW, one IQ Dash 8 - 137km...

But AMS-Rotterdam... wow... that's really short.



Smile - it confuses people!

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.


Next: 26.05. DUS-LHR BA939, LHR-HKG BA25; 01.06 HKG-LHR BA32; 02.06. LHR-DUS BA938

Skyways fly Storuman-Vilhemlina in northern Sweden 59 km it's the second leg and the flight starts at BMA. I think they are using a Saab 340.

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.

There's a short (!) video clip somewhere, taken from the cockpit of that flight between the Orkney islands. Have a search on the forum - I'm sure it wasn't that long ago.

I can't find a fare for just that segment - but it is probably one of the most expensive in the world per mile or per minute!

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.

Geoffm - Westray to Papa Westray is £14 each way, unless you're over 60 when it comes down to £7 each way. No tax or charges as these are classed as essential services.

And if you take a helicopter, the distance is approx. 20 km shorter (from Hernesaari heliport at Helsinki to Linnahall heliport at Tallinn). Flight time 18 min. 12 return trips daily.

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.

IL76.
When I was at Rotterdam Airport last week I saw a scheduled KLM flight to Amsterdam on the screens. But maybe that one was a positioning flight from a fokker coming back from London?

Nope. It starts at ARN and is flown with a F50.
