Aer Arann’s regional flight between Connemara, Co. Galway to Inishmaan, one of the Aran Islands, takes only six minutes, but surprisingly, it is not the shortest flight in the world — it is the fourth.

The world’s shortest scheduled flight is between Westray and Papa Westray, two of the Orkney Islands, in Scotland.

The flight takes a mere 47 seconds, a Guinness World Record.

The Irish Post reports that the daily route’s average flight time is two minutes (flight times can change depending on the conditions of the day), but with a tail wind, the 1.7 mile route takes only 47 seconds including taxi.

Here are the top 10 shortest flights in the world:
