London: British Airways is launching its shortest flight till date, a 54-mile, 50-minute flight from Bahrain International Airport to Dammam, Saudi Arabia, the media reported on Saturday. The return flight will be even quicker, with only 40 minutes spent in the air, CNN quoted the airlines as saying in a statement on Friday.

The brief flight succeeds the airline’s current shortest trip: a 62-mile hop between the Caribbean islands of Antigua and Saint Kitts. The new service to Dammam is an extension of an existing route from London’s Heathrow Airport to Muharraq, Bahrain. At present, customers disembarking in Bahrain are offered a 90-minute limousine journey to Dammam. From December 1, travelers from London will have the option to continue on the same plane — a four-class Boeing 777-200 — to Dammam’s King Fahd International Airport. (IANS)
