I was wondering what airport in the world has the greatest variety of different airlines with scheduled service to it.
It prolly is JFK, LHR, or CDG.
JFK is the number one destination for most airlines. On the other hand it is across the Atlantic, which means it is hard for small European and Asian airlines to get to. So a European airport might be better off? LHR is probably the number one destination in Europe. CDG is in there as well. On the other hand, all 3 airports are in big cities that have multiple international airports. So maybe that gives the trophy to other airports like FRA, AMS, LAX?
Does anyone have any numbers to substantiate any of my thoughts up there?
CDG: cannot find any numbers for Paris, page doesn't seem to be working properly
FRA: 158 (according to www.flughafen-frankfurt.de) But I definitly don't believe that number is correct. And I know for a fact that that number includes non-scheduled services (for example never heard or seen an airline named Enkor in FRA)
