You like flying? You always use air transport when it comes to traveling? Well then, you are going to love this! Check out the shortest runway in the World!
With a length no longer than 1300 feet, surrounded by cliffs and high hills – it allows only smaller planes to land and take off! (Un)fortunately, the airport is closed for jet aircraft due to the shortness of its runway! However, it is a real pleasure to see these skilled pilots as they land and take off. The shortest runway airport is called Yrausquin Airport and it is situated on the Caribbean island of Saba.
Even though it is closed for jet traffic, it is nothing unusual to see an airplane here. Most often, you can spot a DHC-6 or a BN-2 – since they are smaller. We hope you will have Saba on your Bucket List after you are done watching this footage. Who knows, if you are lucky enough you might be able to see this from a closer angle. Currently, the only airline that operates is the local “Winair” Company. So that means there is a possibility for you to try out this tiny runway!
Anyway, check out the best airport runways in the world!
