The world’s shortest international flight between Germany and Switzerland will be taking its last trip on April 14. The eight-minute flight tickets cost around $42.63 each way.
The flight was reportedly canceled both because the demand for it was low and that it was highly criticized for environmental reasons. The airline owner Markus Kopf explained.
“There was indeed small, recognizable progress, but we don’t think that the targeted number of passengers could have been reached.”
The initial plan of the Austrian People’s Air Group was to fly 40,000 people each year as a connector between Cologne-Bonn and the Swiss airport.
While the eight-minute flight was extremely short, there is a domestic flight that’s even shorter. One Loganair flight in Europe last only two minutes.
