Surpassing global expectations with its brevity, the flight trails only behind the legendary route from Westray to Papa Westray in Scotland, which clocks in at a mere 53 seconds, making it the shortest flight globally.

The news surfaced through a YouTube video shared by @jafaronlinecoid and re-uploaded by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (@kemenparekraf.ri) on Instagram, highlighting the awe-inspiring journey adorned by the natural wonders of Papua.
