|Also known as:||Papa Westray Airport|
|Date:||Opened August 1967|
Papa Westray famously forms one half of the shortest scheduled airline service in the world. The flight between here and nearby Westray, mounted since 1967 by Loganair as part of its inter-island service, is set at two minutes but normally achieved in nearly half that time or occasionally even less, depending upon the direction of the wind. The novelty of this particular flight has seen it prove remarkably popular with tourists.
