Are you talking about flight time or total time? Baltimore to Philadelphia is a short air route but Denver to Colorado Springs is even shorter by air. I have taken both of them by chance in the past year. The Denver to Colorado Springs route is only 14 - 20 minutes depending on the aircraft and the routing that you get for a total distance of about 80 miles. It isn't the shortest in the world but it is notable because it route that is routinely used between two large airports. The total time is about 40 minutes and most of that is spent taxiing.
