The busiest route from PHL is either PHL-ATL with , or PHL-ORD with about 1,000,000* enplanements from PHL each.

*Estimate, don't know the exact pax. #s

I have heard that Paris Nice (CDG-NCE, ORY-NCE) is the busiest route in europe. Is there anybody who can tell me if it's true?

LA-New York if you count all the airports, I believe is the busiest in the US... I got the stats somewhere, but seem to have lost them.

As I recall, other big ones are ORD-JFK, SFO-LAX, SFO-ORD (this may or may not have included multiple airports again)

An interesting fact is that 4 or 5 of the top ten routes are Intra-Island Hawaiian flights...

United Shuttle operates between LAX and SFO every 20 minutes...some flights in peak periods are even closer together. Flights are always very full. American has a similar flight schedule with ex Reno Air services. I believe Continental has flights as does Delta. It is strange, because 15 years ago it was PSA and Western who dominated this route. USAir (a.k.a. US Airways) who acquired PSA don't even operate the route and I don't think that Delta (who bought Western) have much of a presence. You would have thought these key routes would have been part of the attraction to these airlines.

Southwest has, I think, about two flights a day but go to sister airports at Oakland or San Jose and they are at least every hour.

I believe that it is SFO/LAX to JFK, but i'm not sure about that. I know that United operates flights about every 90 minutes going from the west to the east and back.

Among other things you have to decide whether you're counting flights or passengers or seats-- and, most important, whether a "route" is defined as one airport-pair or not. In recent years when the DOT has listed top US routes LA-New York has been at the top, but that's three airport-pairs. If you combine traffic at JFK-EWR-LGA then presumably you should combine traffic at SFO-OAK and LAX-BUR, and if you do then "San Francisco" to "LA" is the busiest route in the US. But if we're comparing airport-pairs, then HNL-OGG has more pax than SFO-LAX. And various airport pairs in Japan, Taiwan and maybe Australia (thanks, Al) may well beat HNL-OGG.

And don't forget to search the forum for "busiest routes"-- there should be a bit of wheat among the chaff.

In Asia, I think the route Hong Kong-Taipei must be the busuest in terms of number of flights. Cathay Pacific, British Airways, China Airlines, Japan Asia Airways, Singapore Airlines and Thai flies the route. I think all the planes flying the route are pretty large. (more than 250 pax capacity)
On Sunday July 9, there were at least 29 flights departing for Taipei.

There was a post on this subject just a few weeks ago, but it was full of exact passenger numbers and info, so look it up. I think it said that the busiest city pair is NY-LA, busiest international route is London-Paris, and busiest non US domestic route is Paris-Nice or Sydney-Melbourne. There was a US top 10 as well, which was fascinating. Check the archives.


fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

I can nearly guarantee you, although I have no proof, that the Dublin to London is the busiest in Europe (all airports and all airlines)with roughly 60 flights each way which is approximately 120 return flights daily ! Each aircraft having a capacity of 100+. Pretty impressive

Regards,
Martin

P.S I do know that this route overtook London-Paris about a year ago so I presume its still the same

Kuala Lumpur and Singapore are two important ends of a rather busy air-route. Both Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines provide frequent Shuttle Services between the two cities at unbelievably cheap fares (compared with the rest of the world). Passengers purchasing 'Shuttle' tickets with either airline may travel on any flight operated by the two carriers.

Apart from MAS and SIA. Japan Airlines flies daily between the two cities whilst Air-India, Indian Airlines and Pakistan International also operate the route albeit rather infrequently. Qantas used to fly the route too but has since pulled out of Malaysia.

i think that the YUL-YYZ route is much more popular than the SYD-MEL route , Rapidair by AC has flight every 30 mins during peak hours and every hour during normal hours....CP had something like 4 daily flights, maybe even more, and there are airlines like Royal, Air transat and Air Canada 3000 operating this route...

SYD-MEL has fewer flights...and AC uses their
A340 , B767 even A330 and B744

(even OA and OK operate this route)

I'm pretty sure Dublin - London (City to City - all airports) is the busiest in Europe both in terms of passenger traffic and aircraft movements.
