    The shortest regularly operating flight takes 2 minutes. It is between 2 Orkney islands located to the north of Scotland : Westray and Papa Westray. It is operated by Loganair.

    The longest flight is a 9,505 mile journey from Changi to Newark Liberty operated by Singapore Airlines. It takes 18 and a half hours, however the airline is taking steps to reduce time and distance.
