Full Answer

There are many shuttle services available to take passengers to and from LGA and JFK. Among them are ETS Air Shuttle, All County Express, and NYC Airporter. Passengers can either make reservations or arrive at the shuttle departure point at a scheduled pick-up time. Schedules for each shuttle can be found online or at the information desks at the airport. Travelers can also easily take public transportation or taxis between the two New York airports. Shuttle rides take between 45 minutes to an hour, and taxi rides generally take about 30 minutes. As of July 2015, the cost of a shuttle varies from $10 to $35, and the cost of a taxi is approximately $40.

The shortest commercial flight in the world lasts as few as 47 seconds. The short flight travels between Westray and Papa Westray, two of the Orkney Islands in Scotland that are just over a mile apart. Because there is no bridge connecting the two islands, a small plane is a convenient way to get from one to the other. The plane seats eight passengers and, as of July 2015, has been in operation by Loganair, a Scottish airline, since 1967.

If a plane were to fly between LGA and JFK, the flight time would be approximately six minutes.
