I was just curious as to what airport in the world has the most daily flights by different airlines. Two that came to mind would be JFK and LGW or LHR. LAX might also be another possibility. Just some food for thought.


Why fly with 2 engines when you can have 3?

MIA for years was the leader in number of airlines serving that airport. But with so many fallouts I don't know if this is still the case. DB777 do you have any updated info?

MIA is still in the USA .... Big grin

I would suggest LHR, FRA, PAR, JFK, LAX....these would probably be the top 5....

Great question and I hope someone has an accurate answer.

I doubt there is a landslide winner though. The airport with the most variety of airlines, I am sure, has a close 2nd and 3rd runner up. And I am sure those numbers change quarterly as roytes and carriers change often.

There was a thread on this a couple of years ago and I believe the consensus led to FRA being the winner.

I would tend to agree. This past November 3rd, for a matter of 3-4 hours, I logged 70 different airlines and I'd reckon there were at least 30 more that weren't even written down due to not needing any of their fleets (reg. wise).

CDG, AMS and to a lesser extent, LHR (slot reasons) are likely also up there.
US wise, MIA, JFK, LAX, SFO, BOS, ORD all would come to mind.

Opening quite a can of worms, aren't we? A more interesting question might be what carrier flies to the most airports at which they provide the only scheduled passenger service, and I have absolutely no idea.

I just checked CDG, FRA, LHR, HKG, and NRT:

CDG - 119 airlines - WOW!!
FRA - 104 airlines
LHR - 86 airlines
HKG - 62 airlines
NRT - 53 airlines

Keep in mind folks, these are number of unique "two-letter" airline codes for airlines serving the airport. Therefore, an express carrier of a trunk carrier will be counted as an additional airline.

Just out of curiousity, do those OAG numbers count certificate holders or the carrier selling the flight? If we get YV, OO, OH, S5, BTA, and MQ in there, ORD and MIA are much, much closer than I would expect.

It counts any unique two-letter code as an airline. However, JFK is so far ahead of the other airports in the U.S. that it makes little difference. The reason JFK is so high is because of carriers like Uzbekistan Airways, Royal Air Maroc, etc. etc. etc ... not because of the express carriers. If anything they would tend to be higher in a place like ORD.

Yeah, that's why I was wondering. It might push LAX ahead of HKG as they have a good handful (QX, OO, YV, EV, BTA, MQ, and a few more), and I think it makes ORD and MIA very, very close.

I was just about to suggest De Gaulle when I spotted this. It may not be quite as busy as LHR and FRA but when I was last there there sure was an impressive procession of airlines.

In response to which airport has the least, it's a silly question really. Any airport with no scheduled services would qualify. of which there are thousands worldwide. Lydd and Southend here in the UK spring to mind immediately.

IF we're counting cargo airlines, it used to be MIA hands down up until about the mid-90's. Even back then MIA might have had more pax airlines than JFK and LAX as well.

Maybe years ago but right now that sounds like too much.. I bet some airlines on those lists are not around anymore or not flying to the airport any longer. My guess at the momet would be Moscow Dodomodedovo or Beijing, perhaps Dubai.

What about Singapore, Bangkok?

This information comes from the December 2006 OAG, so I'd say most of the airlines included are flying.

Nope. Was there last year and it was very slow. It could possibly have the most internal airlines, as ex-Soviet carriers are springing up left, right and centre at the moment. I grant you one thing though - I bet in 3-5 years it will be a very, very busy airport indeed.

AMS should be high up on the list as well.

The FRA figure (I haven't couble checked it) should be regular line carriers, plus there are regular all cargo carriers as well, plus the regular tourist charter carriers which are not AOG listed. The overall figure is something like 200 of which ca, 170 have at least one frequency per week.

Right now yes, JFK has more airlines than Miami, I have to add up all the cargo airlines and see but JFK has more pax carriers for sure in 2006. Back in the mid-90s MIA was really close to LHR in total #, I remember checking a 1995 OAG.

I waasn't talking about busy, I meant number of airlines, and no, American Eagle, Continental connection to me don't count  Wink

For example, even in the Miami Airport website there are airlines listed there that don't fly anymore. Another thing is, some airlines like Surinam for example, haven't flown to MIA with their own equipment for many years, so do we count those?

Being that FRA is in Europe, with the amount of summer charters it could get, etc. .it might very well have 100+ airlines at times. Not sure about CDG.

Could someone post the # of airlines that can be seen at FRA, CDG, LHR?
