Longest And Shortest Route Ops By An Airline.

Sun Feb 06, 2011 5:15 pm

I'm not sure if EK SFO-DXB is the longest route nonstop or if SQ EWR-SIN is. I'm leaning toward EWR-SIN. As for the shortest I'd imagine it's CO TPA-Key West since i recall it being only 25 min or so. If anyone has a list of the longest routes operated by a commercial airline it would be much appreciated. thanks.

Surely QK's flight between YVR-YCD must be one of the shorter ones.

This could be more fun if we do it by airline. For example:

US (Mainline only that I could find):

Longest - PHL-TLV by A332 - 5771miles

Shortest - LGA-PHL by E-190 - 95miles

All miles from www.gcmap.com

LI operates its DHC8's between SKB and NEV which is only 11 miles apart and takes about 4-5 minutes flying time.

as to the shortest flights list... while no longer running... CO had ExpressJet flying the ERJ-145 from Houston Intercontinental to Houston Ellington Field... (IAH-EFD)

Total Distance: 25 NM... record was just at 7 minutes T/O to Touchdown...

CO still has Colgan and sometimes ExpressJet flying Intercontinental to College Station (CLL)
Distance: 64 NM

I think AC's (mainline) longest nonstop is YYZ-HKG (6787 nm) and shortest is probably YUL-YOW (82 nm) which still has one E-190 per day that continues to YEG.

Longest AC Jazz nonstop is probably YYC-IAH (1518 nm) and shortest YVR-YCD (30 nm), followed by YVR-YYJ (34 nm). AC mainline has operated YVR-YYJ on and off over the years but it seems to be all Jazz Dash 8s now.

Yes, and I believe that is the shortest mainline flight on any airline in the continental USA.

My friend flew that route in 09 and i was surprised it even exists. i mean after all, NJ isn't that far away maybe an hour or two. I just don't see how even a regional airline could be profitable but i guess some people just don't like to drive.

No mainline on that route. Since DTW-TOL was recently axed, I think the shortest flight in DL's system now, including DL Connection, is DTW-FNT at 56 mi (48 nm).
