The world's shortest commercial flight is just 80 seconds long

People visiting Scotland's Orkney Islands wanting to travel between Westray and Papa Westray -- islands a mere 1.7 miles apart from each other -- will most likely take a flight on an eight-seater plane. Clocking in at 80 seconds, the hop from island to island is the shortest scheduled passenger flight in the world.

The Scottish regional airline Loganair has been flying this route since 1967 and charges approximately £21 one-way ($28) for the service.

In this Great Big Story video, its head pilot Colin Mcallister says, "The flight is used almost as a bus service."
