- Viennaline to operate world’s shortest flight from St Gallen to Friedrichshafen.
- Only the fourth route operated by the Austrian airline.
Austrian airline Viennaline has launched the world’s shortest flight from St Gallen–Altenrhein Airport in Switzerland with Friedrichshafen Airport in Germany.
The route lasts just eight minutes and covers only 20km; it’s just one of four that Viennaline operate.
The unique selling point of the route is that the two destinations are separated by Lake Constance and therefore a drive between the two is 64km. To save that journey time Viennaline are offering a fare between the two destinations for €40.
The success of the route is debatable given check-in times, but the other bonus of the destination is the possibility to connect to onwards to destinations such as Friedrichshafen to Cologne or St Gallen to Vienna.
The twice-daily flight will begin on November 2.
