Here a list of top routes between UK and Latin America during October 2004. Please note that it includes both scheduled and charter flights, hence some touristic places high figures.
Numbers include incoming and outcoming pax in every route, so you just have to divide by 2 to get the traffic in a single route.

1. London-CUN: 17,056
2. London-GRU: 16,809
3. London-La Romana (Dom. Rep.) 15,667
4. MAN-CUN: 13,093
5. London-MEX: 11,198
6. MAN-PUQ: 10,571
7. London-EZE: 6,967
8. London-GIG: 6,282
9.London-HAV: 4,809
10. London-PUQ: 4,471
11.London-Holguin (Cuba) 4,150
12.London-Varadero: 3,963
13.MAN-Punta Cana: 3,587
14.London-Cunagua (Cuba) 2,784
15.London-BOG: 2,747
16.MAN-Varadero: 2,710
17.GLA-CUN: 1,965
18.ondon-CCS: 1,961
19.MAN-La Romana: 1,954

It is quite evident charter traffic is the most important to Latin America, especially to Cuba, Dominican Republic and Cancún. All Cuban airports had 18,903 pax going to and coming from UK, Dominican Republic 41,786 pax, and CUN alone had 33,300 pax.

If you consider exclusively scheduled flights, things come out very different:
(all departing from London)

GRU 16.809
MEX 11.198
EZE 6.967
GIG 6.282
HAV 4.809
BOG 2.747
CCS 1.961

Just for comparision purposes:
London-Barbados gets 32.300 pax,
BHX-NYC 16.567
LON-DFW 37.200
LON-NYC 318.501

Or, in other words, the total of Latin America-UK traffic is roughly the same at that between UK and Belgium (147.000 vs 155.000) or half UK-Cyprus (147.000 vs 345.000), or even less than LON-Málaga (147.000 vs 217.000)!!!!!!!!

I see a lot of potential here!

Thanks for sharing those figures with us, it was interesting. CUN is not suprising, it is becoming increasingly popular for holidaymakers choosing something different other than Spain and Florida. GRU is interesting, i would've thought GIG had higher passenger numbers? Cuba is not suprising either, the UK-Cuba tourist market is increasing, VS will be flying there soon. Is SCL not included in the list? BA stopped flying there some time ago, there's no direct link between the UK and Chile.

In Arsene we trust!!

Indeed. Not only drop dramatically but disappear entirely.

However, I see you live in Margarita, so you might be interested in knowing that MAN-Porlomar had 1.001 pax during october. So, we can assume 1 weekly charter flight.

GRU is Brazil business centre, while GIG, though a big city is more a touristic place only.

SCL does not get any service to LHR currently. And, as Lamedianaranja said, nor will BOG or CCS

Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

Thanks for the figures
I still can't believe that BA is pulling out of BOG
and looking to this numbers please keep in mind that BA only have a 3 weekly flight between LHR and CCS/BOG.....so this numbers are totally great!!

Colombia... can't wait to be there again!!!!!!!!!!

Pzurita1, your figures on UK-Belgium are completely wrong! You can multiply by 10 about the 155000 you mentioned to get the real value. BRU-LON is one of the major city pairs in Europe. Just between BRU and all London airports (LHR, LCY, LGW) there are about 17 daily return flights with equipment varying from F-50 (VLM) to the odd B763 (BA). Then you can add the numerous dailies by Bmi, BA, SN, Flybe to Southampton, Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham and Edinbrugh. In total I counted 46 round trips from BRU to the UK for today. Add the 5 or 6 dailies from ANR to LCY by VLM and that makes over 50 daily flights between these two countries. I somehow doubt that Cyprus has twice more traffic flow from the UK than Belgium does.

Otherwise interesting info , but please get your stats right.

Cheers SAA-SAL

They are not my figures, they are Aiports Authority of UK. However, may be you are not considering they are only for ONE month (ie 155,000 times 12 to have a year estimation.

If you send me an email, I can send you the pdf document with this info, for you to verify it.
