Shortest Jet Routes in the United States
Yesterday, as I was coming home from college for the Summer I had the chance to fly one of the shortest jet routes in the country. The 83 mile flight from CSG (Columbus, Georgia) to ATL lasted a whopping 20 minutes. I'm pretty sure it took longer to taxi to the gate in Atlanta than we were actually in the air. The flight got me thinking about what other short haul jet routes are out there. I did some research and this is what I found. KCSG (Columbus, GA) - KATL (Atlanta, GA): Delta Express, operated by ExpressJet / Atlantic Southeast operates 4 daily flights utilizing CRJ-200's. The flights are 83 miles and last about 20 minutes. KFNT (Flint, MI) - KDTW (Detroit, MI): Delta Express, operated by Pinnacle Airlines, operates about 2 daily flights utilizing CRJ-200's. The flights are 56 miles and last about 15 minutes. These flights can be as short as 8 minutes! KESC (Escanaba, MI) - KIMT (Iron Mountain, MI): Delta Express, operated by Pinnacle Airlines, operates 2 daily flights utilizing CRJ-200's. The flights are 50 miles and last about 10 minutes. KSBN (South Bend, IN) - KORD (Chicago, IL): United Express operates 6 daily flights utilizing various CRJ's and E-145's. The flights are 84 miles and last about 20 minutes. KSBA (Santa Barbara, CA) - KLAX (Los Angeles, CA): American Eagle operates 6 daily flights on E-145's and CRJ-700's. The flights are 89 miles and last about 20 minutes. Please comment if you know of any others!
