The World’s Shortest International Flight Routes Revealed

The World’s Shortest International Flight Routes Revealed

September 11, 2020

Aviation analytics firm OAG has crunched the numbers from 2019’s flight schedules and has revealed the shortest international flights in the world. Despite crossing country borders, many of these flights are unbelievably short, with six of the 10 shortest coming in at under 60 nautical miles long!

Although these figures are based on 2019 and the landscape of 2020 is likely to look very different, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at the results and just how short some flights really are.?

The world’s shortest international flight

The shortest border-crossing flight in the world in 2019 was from the Republic of the Congo to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The route takes off from Brazzaville (BZF) in the RoC and lands around 10 minutes later in Kinshasa (FIH) in the DRC. All in, the route is just 13 nautical miles long.
