Any short haul recommendations

Hey I have seen some topics where there are good short hauls, but I want to ask myself, so what are the best short haul flights, now that I’m very addicted to long hauls lol😅
And maybe I would like more flights in the continent of Africa, I haven’t done many there.
“Hope I didnt put the wrong topic or stuff from general and stuff”

I just did Cape Air flights from KJFK-KMVY-KACT-KJFK on the C208 and love it! They were short (13 mins- 1:18) and the Atlantic costal flying was incredible! But you could fly in anything like TBM or C172

Ah sorry lol I didn’t see that.

Madagascar is a great country to explore, be it flying from Madagascar to mainland Africa or just doing some inter-island hops :)

I haven’t heard of many scenic locations in Africa. However, the coastal side of Namibia is really pretty- the sandy desert of Namibia meets the ocean there, a cool contrast.

Wow! Africa is pretty scenic, flown there 1 time in Infinite flight and thought it was pretty scenic. In a long haul

If you have the Open Beta you can take the B752 with its new African liveries on a spin. Lots of airlines that are new used it on short routes

Africa is actually the most beautiful continent from above imo. It has endless deserts, jungles, mountains, and amazing shorelines

Easy Route
Santorini (LGSR) - Athens (LGAV)

Hard Route
Heraklion (LGIR) -Samos (LGSM)


Both routes are in Greece and are best flown in an A320. Flight time around 20-30 minutes.

There is Kilimanjaro but I think it’s more about the shorelines and jungles…

There are many more mountains though. The table mountain in South Africa or the Atlas Mountains are only two of countless examples. I would recommend looking at a topographical map

Ah, I was talking about taller mountains. They are not as commonly found as in other continents relative to how big Africa is
