You'll have to hurry if you want to book a seat on the world's shortest international flight; the 8-minute, 20 km route between Switzerland and Germany is being cancelled as of next Friday.
Austria's People's Group airline, also known as Viennaline, has been running the route since November, between St. Gallen-Altenrhein airport in Switzerland and Friedrichshafen in Germany, using one of its two Embraer 170s.
The airline hoped the short hop would serve to connect its two other routes, Vienna to St. Gallen and Friedrichshafen to Cologne/Bonn. After Friday, only the Vienna route will remain. The airline also flies seasonal charters to vacation spots in Italy, Greece and Croatia.
