WORLD’S SHORTEST INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT IS CANCELLED

Stuttgart, – An 8-minute flight between Germany and Switzerland that was said to be the world’s shortest regularly scheduled international route has been discontinued, officials said.

The route, which carried passengers over Lake Constance as it flew between Altenrhein in Switzerland and Friedrichshafen in southern Germany, was only launched in November.

Vienna-based airline People’s Viennaline was abandoning the route as of April 14 due to low demand, German News Agency (DPA) quoted Claus-Dieter Wehr, the chief executive of Friedrichshafen airport as saying on Saturday.

The mini-flight was criticized by environmentalists as a senseless source of pollution. (QNA)
