With all aircraft it depends primarily on the weight and other factors such as temperature, and for T/O thrust/powewr rating etc. etc. You need to set some standard criteria, for example - for each type at it's max (takeoff or landing) weight, full TOGA power for T/O, Sea Level ISA +15degC conditions, max. braking/spoilers but no reverse for landing.

I understand where you are coming from, but that is not the question I asked. To paraphase, I am wondering what is the shortest runway each of these aircraft have scheduled service to, not what is the shortest amount of runway each aircraft needs to take off. For instance, going into Lukla for a DHC-6 Twin Otter, or going into Santos Dumont (SDU), for an A319 or 737-700. Hope that clears things up. Thanks!

Lord Howe Island, New South Wales, Australia - LDH
RWY LENGTH - 886m
QantasLink flies Dash-8-200s (not sure if they still send DH8-100s) from Brisbane once to twice weekly and a few times a day from Sydney to Lord Howe Island. There is no room for error and I have heard due to the short runway, prevalence of severe turbulence and the often changing weather, QantasLink sends only their most experienced pilots to Lord Howe Island.

For the 732s, it is probably Dutch Harbor/Unalaska (DUT, PADU). For the B735, 73G, and B738, I am nearly positive it is SDU. That is quite the approach and landing. For the A340, I am guessing SXM, because the A340 doesn't really light the world on fire with its power and climb performance. For the 777/767, WLG? I have seen pictures of them operating in and out of there, and that runway is 6300 feet.

Quoting 411A (Reply 11): Certainly a lot of guessing here, Thepilot, and not too many actual facts, with figures to back it up.
Except one post...where actual weights, runway lengths etc were presented, using performance data provided by runway analysis charts or AFM performance information.
Of course it is guessing, I don't pretend to know every destination served by a certain aircraft type. To reiterate, I am NOT, I repeat, NOT asking what is the shortest length that an aircraft can take off in, I am asking what airport THAT THEY SERVE has the shortest runway. I do have many performance charts for these aircraft. That is why I keep mentioning airport names. I am sorry if i was not clear in the original post.
