We managed to book 2 seats on a sunny day, to fly from Kirkwall to North Ronaldsay and Westray & Papay. All together the flights took around 30 minutes, and it was a great program. You can enjoy the beautiful views and fly the shortest...More

Quirky but unique, is the World's shortest scheduled passenger flight between Papaw Westray and Westray. The flight is done in a Britten Norman Islander and you are able to see the same view as the Pilot as you approach the landing strips. Well worth doing...More

If you like Orkney don't miss flying to Papa Westray (Papay) in the North Isles. Stay the night on Papay and the flight cost is around £21 return. Get away from it all. Great fun, great views. You wont regret it!

The sightseeing flight wasn't available, but the wonderfully helpful Loganair staff explained how it could be done. To start and finish at Kirkwall involves three flights and one has to find a space when seats are available on all three 'legs' (obviously). The flights run...More

One of our family had heard of the shortest flight from Papay Westray to Westray and so we planned a day to include it. We got a ferry to Westray and then the bus up the island to top to get another smaller ferry to...More
