There was a topic on this earlier, but it was deleted. I wonder why.

The purpose of this thread is the same as the other one. The question is "what airport is the most international?"

Anyway, I had a photo compilation of the airlines that go into JFK. Enjoy!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

EDIT: Gulf Air no longer flies to JFK

Once again, thanks for the awesome collection of photoes from JFK.

JFK...MIA...LAX. Those three are at the top and there's different ways we can measure them (pax, flights, variety, etc.).

Surely LHR! It is the busiest international airport in the world, and it only has 3 domestic airlines there! JFK and ORD would have loads more.

YVR may not have the most International in terms of World airports but I think they might take top spot out of Canadian Airport.

The earlier thread was moved to the Aviation Polls & Prefs. forum. It wasn't deleted; it is just more appropriately placed there.

In terms of pax is Atlanta not the biggest. If so why is that I would think LHR or JFK someplace like that would be the biggest

LHR or AMS. It is strange to see JFK empty of any international flights at certain times.

I think he means the total amount of different international airlines serving one airport, and yes, LHR would without a doubt take that spot. And when you include MAN and LGW into the equation, that's a healthy portion of international flying  Smile

As for YVR taking Canada's top spot... not sure... Montreal is a very diverse crowd  Big grin

But...

YVR (not including cargo + CDN ops)

Air Pacific
Mexicana
MartinAir
EvaAir
Cathay Pacific
JAL
Air China
China Airlines
China Eastern
Philippine Airlines
Singapore Airlines
Korean Airlines
British Airways
KLM

BelAir

Mexicana
Air Jamaica
Olympic Airways
Malev Hungarian
British Midland
Aeroflot
Austrian Airlines
LOT Polish Air
TACA/Cubana
ElAl

SATA
US Airways

24 to 32.... YYZ is the winner.

But that's ok... YUL only manages to crank out about 14, and YYC's "under 10".  Smile

In the U.S., my vote definitely goes to JFK. LAX and MIA are a toss up with LAX having lots of Asian carriers and MIA with its Latin service.

No american airport can beat european ones in terms of international flights because of the shorthaul european destinations, which are considered international. Most of shorthaul flights from the US are domestic.

How are you defining largest?

Largest number of international passengers? I'd put my money on LHR.

Largest number of international airlines? Again, money on LHR.

Largest number of international flights? LHR.

Largest number of international destinations? LHR.

Cheers

FRA has the most number of international destinations, as far as I know over 50 more than LHR.

If we're looking at airlines over the years, here are some stats from the database:
# airlines @ LHR: 627
# airlines @ JFK: 535
# airlines @ LAX 550
# airlines @ MIA: 905
# airlines @ AMS: 924

These aren't 100% accurate, there are some dodgy entries, and airlines like Untitled (British Airways), and privately owned aircraft are all counted.

Minus BA, VS and BMI, there are over 90 international airlines serving LHR, with new carriers such as China Eastern, East African Airways and Etihad joining the LHR list this year.
