Hey all, I'm interested to know what are the largest sky bridges (routes with the highest frequency) operated in each individual airline. For Example Horizon Air's is SEA-PDX with more then 30 flights a day. Where as United's is probably SFO-LAX, I believe there are like 18 mainline a day on that one. But I'm interested to hear about other airlines as well and what their largest sky bridges are. Thanks a lot!

Flying the Interisland routes in Hawaii is kinda like riding the bus, but not nearly as much as a few years ago.
HNL-OGG: AQ=21 flights HA=21 flights Total: 42 flights
HNL-LIH: AQ=16 flights HA=15 flights Total: 31 flights
HNL-KOA: AQ=12 flights HA=11 flights Total: 23 flights
HNL-ITO: AQ=9 flights HA=6 flights Total: 15 flights

Now, especially since Aloha and Hawaiian have an antitrust immunity and can coordinate their capacites on these routes, both have cut the number of flights. In the mid 1990s, there were something like 80 flights a day between HNL-OGG on the AQ and HA combined. Keep in mind all these flights are between 20 minutes and 40 minutes in length, and are all operated by mainline aircraft: 737-200s for AQ and 717-200s for HA.

Aloha!

Considering all airlines (and area airports), Dallas-Houston has to be near the top. Consider that on a daily basis:

Southwest has 63 flights from DAL-HOU (both ways) and 16 DAL-IAH (both ways)

American has 17 DFW-IAH (both ways) and 14 DFW-HOU (both ways)

Continental has 16 DAL-IAH (both ways) and 16 DFW-IAH (both ways)

Delta has 8 DFW-IAH (both ways) and 8 DFW-HOU (both ways).

For all airports in the Dallas and Houston areas, there are 158 flights daily, both ways. Does any other market top this one?

I don't have any figures on it, but I'm betting that if you added up the Los Angeles area (LAX, SNA, ONT, LGB, BUR) flights to the Bay Area (SFO, OAK, SJC) flights, it would top Dallas-Houston easily.

Miami-New York during the winter. 180 flights both ways.

American Airlines: 5x MIA-JFK (all widebody); 3x MIA-EWR; 10x MIA-LGA; 4x FLL-LGA; 3x PBI-LGA TOTAL: 26

Continental Airlines: 5x MIA-EWR; 6x FLL-EWR; 6x PBI-EWR TOTAL: 17x

Southwest Airlines: 3x FLL-ISP; 2x PBI-ISP TOTAL: 5x

Delta Airlines/Song: 4x FLL-LGA; 5x FLL-JFK; 2x FLL-EWR; 4x PBI-LGA; 2x PBI-JFK TOTAL: 17x

jetBlue: 13x FLL-JFK; 7x PBI-JFK TOTAL: 20x

Spirit: 5x FLL-LGA TOTAL: 5x

Southeast: 6w FLL-SWF; TOTAL: 6w

That is a total of 180 daily flights both ways plus a 181st that operates daily except Tuesday. Not to mention that the final winter schedules for jetBlue have not been uploaded yet. Last year they did 16x FLL-JFK and 9x PBI-JFK.

During the summer there are slighly fewer flights, but it's not a huge difference.



And about the whole PBI in MIA/FLL thing, following the 2002 census figures released about a month ago, Miami and Palm Beach now make up one continuous metropolitan area: Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-Miami Beach MSA, which is the 6th largest MSA in the country.

...shouldnt Available Seats be counted on these routes instead of frequencies?

20xsDaily in an ERJ is significantly different than 20xsDaily in a 737/A32x

Keep in mind this is the summertime, and the schedule drops back a bit to around 16X each way during the fall and winter.

I would imagine that ORD/MDW-LGA/JFK/EWR/ISP would be nearly as large as New York City to Miami/Fort Lauderdale, if not larger...

AA MDW/ORD - LGA/EWR/JFK, 29 flights both ways
UA ORD-EWR 9 flights
UA is dropping ORD-JFK
UA ORD-LGA 15 flights
WN MDW-ISP, 3 n/s west-to-east, 4 east-to-west
CO EWR-ORD 6 flights
CO EWR-MDW 6 flights

There have to be more than that, but that is what I've been able to find in 15 minutes...

So that's 65.5 flights each way, or 131 flights total, and that's just these four. The list may also be innaccurate, by which I mean short (UA was the only one wherein I found a printed schedule; the others are all reservations queries).

Qantas' busiest route is Sydney-Melbourne, with up to 26 flight a day in aircraft including Boeing 737s, 767s and 747s. A330 operations on this 'Cityflyer' route are being reduced as they are unable to meet the quick turnaround times required.

NYC to Washington, DC.

Delta, American, US Airways, United, Continental all fly at least 8-10 times per day in each direction. Probably a lot more if you begin including BWI and Islip, Westchester airports.

That has got to be one of the busiest airbridges in the country.

EXT-BHD. One flight per week. Big grin


"Everyone writing for the Telegraph knows that the way to grab eyeballs is with Ryanair and/or sex."
25 Krushny : MAD-BCN is the busiest route in Spain, and I believe in Europe too. IB flies every half hour, and Spanair and Air Europa compete on that route too.
26 CorsairF/a : Air France got "La Navette" which means the shuttle to Nice (NCE) a flight every 30mn at peak hours or every hour Marseille (MRS) the same as NCE Toul
