BA Loganair used to run the shortest schedule flight in the world from Westray to Papa Westray in the Orkney islands in Scotland. It took 3 minutes.

Do BA still run this flight. If so, using what aircraft?

Probably still going using Islanders.

Shouldn't you be at LPL seeing some Swiss visitors there?!

My work colleague left here an hour ago to enrol at John Moores for the 2nd year of his MA.

You should beat Basle - surprised that so many fans have arrived though; puts one or two countries to shame! Anyway, my "miss of the day" is the Constellation which overflew MAN  Sad

Last month Airways magazine published an article about it, so I presume it's still running. According to that article they issue a certificate upon request.

I also read that article on Airways.
My question is: who many inhabitants do those two tiny islands have to support an air service being only 5kms appart?????

Isn't that ridiculous? I bet they keep that flight just for the Guinness record.

Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

Pzurita1:

Apparently you didn't read the article very closely. The islands are only 5 mi appart, but air is the only safe and reasonable way for the residents to get back and forth. Most of the residents use it as a sort of Ferry to get to the market every week and so on. Plus, I do not think the Islander is an insanely expensve aircraft to operate.

As far as I know, it is still operated.
