When I was a more little I remember tacking a B727 from MX on MEX-ACA route.. about (35minutes)/200NM.. and I have repeated that flight like 5 times with different airlines... including the extint Taesa.
On next days hope I can fly to PBC (Puebla) 45nm away from MEX or TLC (Toluca) 40nm away from here.. I´ll try the ATR42 from Aeromar.
What about your shortest flight??

I flew on a Horizon Metro III from PSC to PDT once. The flight was about 15 minutes and we landed with a thunder storm near PDT, so the wind was knocking us around. Gotta love the flying sewer tube....

RST-MSP on Ozark flight 910, April 30, 1974. The flight of 76 miles was operated by a DC-9, scheduled departure time 17:15, arrival 17:40. Total fare for my one-way ticket was $19.64 (18.18 base plus 1.46 tax) -- I still have the ticket, less flight coupon pulled, ticket jacket, and boarding pass from my shortest airline flight.

During the Thanksgiving holidays in 1993, I flew Tropic Air from San Pedro, Belize, to Belize City Municipal airport, 15 minutes in a Cessna Caravan. We had continuing service from the Municipal Airport to the Belize International (BZE), which took about 5 minutes. Ha!
San Pedro Island -- now that's a place to relax and go scuba diving. Anyone ever been there?

The shortest route I flew was from Funchal (LPFU-FUN)
to Porto Santo (LPPS-PST). It was TAP flight, usually operated by DH6. It was about 20 min. Once did that same route on a B727. Very nice flight, flying at 5000ft
over the sea for about 10 min.
Today that route is operated by a SH36.
