...has nonstop service to the most countries? This is out of sheer morbid curiousity, in case you were wondering what the basis was...

LHR, AMS, FRA and CDG come to mind

LHR is the world's busiest international airport in terms of passenger numbers, but I don't know if it also serves the most countries.

Frankfurt lays claim to the title apparently:

For FRA I count 89 countries served nonstop (incl. Charters). There are some more countries served by direct flights.

I thought it was CDG - but that might be just for Scheduled flights. (Charters don't count  Smile/happy/getting dizzy )

Without Charters FRA still has nonstop flights to 82 countries.

Hmmm...would have thought Miami with all its Latin American flights.

Here's a thought question: Let's say we count every island in the Caribbean as an independent entity. For example, that would make St. Maarten/Sint Martin count as neither France or Netherlands (which Miami already has non-stops to), but as its own entity.

If you were to then count the number of non-stops to all the different "entities", would that put Miami over the top? And considering AA is trying to end the "hops" that it used to do in South America, is there going to be any major city without a non-stop there?

LHR - it has to be, I would think. Just watching the flights depart from the big windows in T4 it is incredible.

It isnt LHR because its too busy and too diffucult to get slots. Therefore you miss all this "exotic" carriers which only offers one or two weekly flights to their home country.

Yes, FRA lays claim to having the most nonstop destinations, so probably in the most countries too.

However don't forget that, excluding FR at HHN, FRA is the only airport for Frankfurt, and has three runways so more slots. I've always thought it would be interesting to look at which city has nonstop service to most destinations. London, with five airports, has in total a huge number of destinations on offer that I expect is considerably greater than from FRA and HHN combined. There are many airlines that for economic or slot constraint reasons cannot operate from LHR so consequently operate out of LGW (not talking about locos) instead. There are also a huge number of low cost destinations served from LTN and STN.

Give you a clue - it's in reply #3 (mine!). Okay, so we're relying on a web encyclopaedia for the information so it may not be 100% correct.

Star_world, I think it's because many people don't read all the replies!  Wink/being sarcastic

For Miami, have a look at http://www.miami-airport.com/html/cities_served_nonstop.html. Interesting only 7 European countries are served. 7 South American, 9 Central, plus Canada. That's 24, now somebody determine which Carribbean islands belong to which countries! In any case, the max is 24, giving a total of 48 max from Miami - which isn't that many!

Doesn't it claim FRA has service to most international destinations, not most countries? Or did I miss something?

True, I hadn't spotted that subtlety. However, Frat (reply #6) still suggests 82 countries served, excluding charters.

right it has 3 runways - but they can't use the 3 runways at one time (no parallel landing at least)

OK, I get it, it's FRA, but CDG would have been my first guess, since AF serves all of those north African nations.  Smile

Can someone post the non-stops from FRA?



Up, up and away!

How does SVO rank? Well, maybe SVO+DME, they probably serve all of the ex-Soviet republics, all european countries, plenty of asian countries, plus the United States (only counts as one) as well as Cuba?

It gives me the creeps to think that just about every species of human bacterium or virus has passed through gateways like LHR and FRA...

In the United States, JFK has nonstop service to the most countries.

25 IslipWN : When was the FRA thing fixed?
26 Post contains images FSPilot747 : "Which Airport Has Nonstop Service To The Most Countries?" I hear LAX flies to LHR a lot FSP
27 Post contains images Kim777fan : FSPilot747, That's quite a massive undertaking to move a whole airport nearly 6000 miles like that!!!
28 N1120a : LAX has quite a few countries as well
29 FraT : "Can someone post the non-stops from FRA?" OK, here we go...(sorry for any misspelled countries) Destinations served from FRA: Nonstop (82) Albania Al
30 Travelin man : I know the answer is not LAX, due to the location and the fact a huge ocean is on the border, and North America does not have nearly as many countries
31 Munich : In this case LAX is also beaten by MUC with 61 countries served nonstop (include Charter)
