This topic has been discussed more than 1 year ago but would like to get more feedback and updated information. The previous discussion was for both domestic and Int. airlines, but this one is only for Int. carriers.
As mentioned in the topic, Which airport has the most scheduled international airlines?
Also which airport has the most Int. airlines? (in their own region) for example. in Europe which airport? in Africa? southeast Asia? N. America? S.America?

Quoting Raffik (Reply 1): London Heathrow has the most international scheduled traffic and is the third busiest in the world....
That's not what the thread starter is asking.
Not sure about the number of airlines, but FRA, CDG and AMS all have direct service to significantly more destinations than LHR. I think FRA is first, followed by CDG, then AMS (or AMS may be ahead of CDG, can't remember).
You can't say that without data on other airports like FRA/CDG/AMS which have fare more destinations with direct flights than LHR. Even if you eliminate domestic destinations (which are zero or almost zero from AMS) I wouldn't be surprised if FRA and CDG have more direct destinations than LHR. That of course doesn't indicate total capacity since a much higher proportion of LHR flights use widebodies than from most other airports in Europe.
Quoting ChiefNWA (Reply 9):
I thought ATL was the busiest airport?
Based on overall number of passengers annually as well as, if I'm not mistaken, aircraft movements, then yes.
But not on number of international airlines serving the airport as the thread starter requested.
Poor you, second time you are repeating this.
No one is really getting question. One each continent, which airport sees the highest number of International airlines. Not busy in terms of airplanes, or passengers or nothing of soft, just which has the most international airlines..
So North America,
I would go out on a limb here:
North America - JFK?
Europe - FRA?
South America - GRU?
I would tend to agree as MAH4546 pointed that out earlier.
Anyone want to guess for Canada? YYZ or YUL?
Quoting PlymSpotter (Reply 5): According to Wikipedia, DXB now has 110 airlines serving it, not including cargo operators.
Thats pretty impressive
The source I provided in regards to FRA has 129 pax airlines as well as 31 cargo airlines. I don't know if those are just dedicated cargo airlines or pax airlines cargo divisions as well. Regardless, thats still pretty impressive for an airport that is a sea of LH white, blue and yellow
