Emirates launched world's shortest super jumbo flight

Emirates has launched the world's shortest scheduled service on an Airbus 380, flying between Dubai and Doha -- a distance of 379 kilometers (235 miles). The outbound flight Thursday took one hour and 20 minutes including boarding and disembarking. It was even shorter on the return -- just 70 minutes. The time in the air is around 40 minutes. The Airbus (EADSF) plane operates on 102 routes to around 50 destinations globally. It took 15 years to develop at a cost of $25 billion. Emirates has 87 of the super jumbo jet in service and 55 more on order. It also operates the longest non-stop flight on an A380 between Dubai and Auckland, New Zealand, with journey time of just over 17 hours. Courtesy: CNN Money
