Shortest lived routes?

Thu Jul 12, 2018 1:39 pm

What routes have airlines launched and then canned right after launch? Could be domestic or international.

There's obviously a number of times airlines have pulled a service before it even started but I'm looking for services that had atleast 1 scheduled flight.

Hey guys,
One that immediately comes to mind here in Australia is JesAir's A310 flights from Bulgaria to Melbourne. I was lucky enough to be in Melbourne on a holiday and planespotting at Tullamarine when one of the flights came in, and I believe it was one of the shortest lived services into Australia.
Somebody on a.net may have more details about it : I was pretty young at the time and can't remember how long the service lasted.
Likewise, there was a private Balinese airline that operated only a limited number of services into Australia before pulling out, a decade or so ago....
Cheers,
Bunumuring.

During the IND build up, Northwest launched IND-STL. I think it lasted...what...2 months?
if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport
