Shortest international flight to be launched by Austrian airline



A little-known Austrian airline is launching what is believed to be the shortest international flight.

The flight will cover just 13 miles and is expected to take only eight minutes.

People's Viennaline, which was founded in 2010 and flies to just four destinations, will fly from Friedrichshafen in Germany, to St Gallen-Altenrhein in Switzerland.

The two cities are separated by Lake Constance so although they are only 13 miles apart as the crow flights, the journey by land is about 40 miles, said the Telegraph.

The twice daily service will launch on November 2.

  • Only just shorter than Karpathos to Kassos

    Out of interest I thought I'd check Greek island flight Karpathos to Kassos distance to compare. The reported one is one only slightly shorter if accurate distance. 13 miles is 20.92km. Karpathos to Kassos flight is 13.32 miles, 21.43 km.
