Can you imagine taking a flight that’s over by the time you’ve fastened your seatbelt and gotten cozy? Well one Scottish airline promises you just that.
Loganair has won a bid to operate a route from Westray to Papa Westray in the remote Orkney Islands off the coast of Scotland. If the winds are in your favour, the flight will take about 47-seconds.
The island hopper is the shortest route by a scheduled plane in the world, covering 1.7km, and a trip will set you back £21 ($33 Canadian).
The flight will be a delight for aviation enthusiasts, who are sure to come from all corners of the globe to experience the ride. Tourists will also be happy to see the historically rich and astoundingly picturesque islands from the air, if only for a minute.
