I just read that MSP is now leading in the city with the most destinations served non-stop. Does anyone know what city has the most destinations served non-stop? MSP has something like 155 non-stops.

I know that, it's just that many airports have one-stop service to many destinations. Example: At MSP you can look on the Arrivals/Departures screen and see Beijing which NWA does not serve non-stop from MSP but has a stop at NRT.

I don't know where you read this, but I doubt it is MSP.

I would think that LAS is way up there. If I'm not mistaken, it's the only US airport served by every US airline. Considering the destinations these airlines offer, I'd put my money on LAS:

AA
CO
NW
WN
HP
DL (incl. Song)
UA (incl. Ted)
US
AS
FL
F9
Spirit
Midwest
Allegiant
Aloha
ATA
Champion Air
Hawaiian
Sun Country

I'd put my money on ATL. Delta serves a very wide variety of European destinations, as well as just about every city in the Eastern US with all their express connections.

I would agree that ATL has the most cities served nonstop. Delta alone serves around 150 cities from ATL nonstop.

Possibly it´s a head on head between ATL and MSP, like it´s between ATL and ORD in terms of passengers.

A long shot here, but what about the US airport with the most international destinations. I'd venture a guess it's JFK.

But I'm not too keen on LAS. I think it may be MCO/SFB, if you consider them as one city. I do, at least. All of the service to every major hub on every major airline, plus the LoCos, the international service to MCO/SFB with scheduled and charter airlines to Europe, Canada, and Mexico, plus all of the domestic "express carriers", especially DL Connection to all of the places like CHS, BHM, IND, etc.

I think greater Orlando is one of the most well-served cities, if not the most well-served, in the entire country.

Well, it used to be, and maybe still is, Heathrow - not only for 'most non-stop destinations' but also for the most International destinations.

Hence Britsh Airways' past claim to be the 'World's Favourite Airline'! They said they carry more International passengers than any other airline! Ergo!

Figures MAY have changed, but I doubt it!

Last heard, I heard that the city with the most nonstops was Atlanta, then Chicago, then MSP, then CVG.

MIA has to be up there somewhere as well. With non stops to pretty much every MAJOR city in South America, Central American and bigger Caribbean destinations as well as European and Domestic destinations. So definetly in the Top 5 if not Top 10.

The thing is, there are more minor destinations than major.

MSP may serve a bunch of minor destinations. LAS, ATL, and ORD assuredly do.

I suppose if the post read most non stop minor destinations out of one city...but from what I can read and take from it..its an "overall" scenario...

but good point Gigneil!

Minneapolis having the most non-stops is not at all out of the question, considering it is a key hub to all those small communities in the Dakotas, Montana, and Minnesota. It has non-stop service to just about every major/midsize city in the US, and tons of EAS route. Atlanta has service to pretty much every major/midsize city too, but not as many in the West, and no EAS service.

Atlanta does have the most, with ORD, MSP and CVG all in the top 4. There was a recent news article about it. I'll try to find it and post a link.

Because I can bend the rules, I'd say Chicago. With 4 airlines hubbed at 2 airports, it's easy to see why- the topic does ask for the CITY with the most non-stops.
As for the AIRPORT with the most non-stops, I don't think ATL isn't too bad a guess

There was an article in the Salt Lake City tribune last November about this. The link I had is now dead but the AIRPORTS with the most nonstop flights were

1. ATL (147)
2. DFW (132)
3. MSP/ORD (130)

I think 4th was CVG.

As said in reply #16 it was asked for the city with most routes. So I would say it's NYC. JFK has tons of intl. Destinations MSP can only dream of. And CO also flies to a lot of cities (big and small) out of EWR. Add LGA and some smaller airports and you should get an impressive number.

The number that IAH is placing on their sign boards is 128 destinations non-stop if I remember that correctly.

Premobrimo is correct... in terms of number if individual airports served non-stop, IT IS MSP. This doesn't mean most number of flights, it means number of different non-stop destinations... doesn't matter if most of those are small cities.

Hmm... he did say "city", all right, not airport. So does that mean EWR gets included with LGA and JFK?

As for airport with most nonstop destinations, it used to be Frankfurt, and probably still is. Amsterdam probably #2.

The June 2004 OAG shows 191 nonstop destinations from ATL, and about 147 from MSP. I also checked LAS: 107 or maybe a couple less. So ATL may be tops in the US, but it isn't higher than #3 in the world.
