Second shortest scheduled flight on Earth

by Александар Стојиљковић - 11 months ago

Subsidies by the Greek gov’t, little Dash of Olympic Air flies daily between Rhodes and Crete, stopping on the islands of Karpathos and Kasos. The distance between Karpathos and Kasos is only 12NM or 21km, making it the second shortest scheduled flight on Earth. The shortest flight, which takes a minute or two is between the islands of Westray and Papa Westray in the Orkney Islands of Scotland.

Flying time was only 5 minutes, so there is not much that I could say about it. Runway on Kasos is surrounded by the cliffs, and this is like a little preparation for the famous Saba Island.
