It is generally agreed (I think) that the world's shortest sheduled commecial flight is in the Orkney Islands (UK).

Back in the 80s there was something called the Houston Proud Express. That flew a DC-9 on behalf of CO between HOU and IAH. That has got to be one of the shortest scheduled flights ever.

Horizon air offers Pullman, WA to Lewiston, ID (PUW to LWS), which is about 29 miles.
|Quoting 71Zulu (Reply 16):|
Wow, that might be the shortest scheduled flight in the US lower 48, scheduled time is 20 minutes.
|Quoting Andaman (Reply 15):|
Helsinki - Tallinn 55 nm, the shortest between two capitals?
|Quoting cofannyc (Reply 17):|
Nope. That honor goes to BID-WST (Block Island, RI to Westerly, RI) on New England Airlines (EJ)....15 minutes block time for 17 miles.
There are also a bunch of flights on 9K to/from MVY (Martha's Vineyard) blocked at 17 and 18 minutes.
|Quoting NYCFlyer (Reply 24):|
But I also think CO Connection flies EWR-PHL, which is slightly shorter. Maybe US even does that too, I don't know.
