Completely believable only if the new service didn’t begin on April Fools’ Day!

Austrian airline FlyNiki has announced a 10-minute trip between Vienna, Austria and Bratislava, Slovakia. The 30-mile trip typically requires an hour by car.

Launching on April 1, FlyNiki is currently offering the service on its website. For USD $53.41/a one-way ticket; you can practically get on the plane, find your seat, say hello to the flight attendant then get ready to land.

Currently, Scotland offers the shortest domestic flight between Westray and Papa Westray islands which takes merely 47 seconds.

FlyNiki has frequently been described as a low-cost airline providing free refreshments, newspapers and baggage. You can expect a sandwich or a cold snack, including soft drinks, tea and coffee. Whether you’ll be able to enjoy all these amenities flying from Vienna to Bratislava is unfortunately unlikely.

With the new service, FlyNiki hopes that it’ll become useful for airport transfers.
