What is the shortest flight you can fly with a passport?

I am aware that the shortest international flight is from St. Gallen, Switzerland to Friedrichshafen, Germany, but what is the shortest flight you can fly with a passport?

I presume you are asking what the shortest flight you can take with a passport being necessary. To answer would be a border town airport (probably GA) to an airport in another country that has customs. If you found the shortest possible route than this would be the answer.

Seattle to Vancouver, I think.

It’s not a scheduled flight, but I think technically if you had your own plane, you could fly from Kinshasa N’Dolo airport (NLO, FZAB) in the DRC (Democracy is Republic of the Congo) to Brazzaville Maya-Maya airport (BZV, FCBB) in the ROC (Republic of the Congo). They are approximately 10 kilometres apart.

I believe it’s Anguilla to St Maarten. 10 minute flight.

I don’t suppose Geneva to Geneva counts as its not actually a flight but it is interesting in that the airport straggles the French and Swiss border. The airport has a Swiss and French side with passport control in the middle. It’s (sort of) possible to board a plane in Switzerland and take off from France. I’ve only ever flew into the French side, crossed the border into Switzerland at the airport to hire a car on the Swiss side, then drove it back across the border to France (car hire cheaper in Switzerland).


Probably Cuba

I dont know which route it is, but it is 1 min and 49 seconds ong

You should fly one of these - that’s a hell of a story.

Cuba to where?

No I meant from were I live Cuba is the shortest International Flight

Which is Atlanta

I flew from St. Maarten to St. Barths and it was 15 min long and I needed a passport. Not sure if it’s the longest but it’s definitely up there.

Well obviously we wouldn’t know unless you add that location in your bio.

There isn’t one from westrey to papa westrey in Norway I think

Same in Basel-Mulhouse Euroairport. This airport has 3 IATA Codes, BSL, MLH and EAP and 2 ICAO LSZM and LSFB. Some time ago you could book cheaper flights from MLH as from BSL, but the same plane. Theres also 2 customs, 1 for switzerland and 1 for france/EU.
