The busiest routes in the world can be found in the Asia-Pacific region, which is home to 15 of the top 20 international, and 13 of the top 20 domestic routes globally. The busiest route on the planet is South Korea Jeju (CJU) to Seoul (GMP), with 79,460 annual operating flights. For a second straight year, Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Singapore (SIN) is the world’s busiest international route (30,187 flights annually), followed by Hong Kong (HKG) to Taipei (TPE), with 28,447 flights.
The busiest international routes outside of Asia are from New York (LGA) to Toronto (YYZ) and Chicago O’Hare (ORD) to Toronto Pearson (YYZ). In North America, Toronto (YYZ) is featured in five of the top 10 international markets. Los Angeles (LAX) to San Francisco (SFO) is the busiest route in North America and ninth busiest in the world.
London Heathrow is the only European hub with routes (from New York JFK and Dublin) ranking among the top 20 busiest international. Within Europe, Amsterdam (AMS) to London (LHR) is the third-busiest international route, with 13,115 operating flights annually.
“Asia is once again home to the world’s busiest routes. In addition to the dominant role played by Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta have become Asia’s new ‘golden triangle,’ offering similar benefits to major U.S. hubs, Boston, New York and Washington,” said John Grant, senior analyst with OAG. “While Asia and North America lead the global rankings, connectivity at London Heathrow remains critical for global air travel, with seven of the region’s busiest long-haul routes ending at the airport.”
OAG’s full analysis includes regional insights for Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America and the Middle East and Africa, with short, medium and long-haul route categorization. For OAG’s full criteria and more insights, access the complete analysis here .
