Hi, Sorry if this has already been discussed. I looked and couldn't find anything.

1)But I've been wondering what airport throughout the world has the most airlines flying to it?

2)And which airport has the most unique airlines? Like from around the world.

I was thinking JFK or LHR for both but I didn't really know if any other are able to compare with JFK and LHR.

Probably would add LAX to the list as well.

Lots of Asian / Pacific airlines there!

MIA is chalk-full of variety, including European and Latin American carriers and add domestic and it's just one big buffet of airlines. LHR and FRA have to be up there too.  Smile

JFK LHR I think are the two tops. Than you have LAX,CDG and FRA. After that MIA,NRT,HKG have to be next. After that I have no clue.

Im pretty sure that CDG and FRA are ahead of LHR, they have a large number of small european carriers and LCC's
plus all of the US carriers that don't serve LHR yet ( DL, US, CO,NW)

JFK has about 80 airlines , CDG,FRA, LHR are closer to 100 and over

Quoting Aruba (Thread starter):
1)But I've been wondering what airport throughout the world has the most airlines flying to it?

2)And which airport has the most unique airlines? Like from around the world.

Can someone explain to me the difference in most airlines flying to an airport and the most number of unique airlines flying to an airport

I've heard CDG cited as #1 in this aspect before but I don't have the data at the moment to back it up. I don't feel like spending an hour counting everything up, but I bet it's CDG. Think, New York has JFK and EWR splitting up some of the airlines, London has LHR and CDG, but for the most part in Paris, ORY is only used by some short-haul airlines but CDG gets service from most of them.

What about BKK? It would seem that just about every airline having a destination in Far East flies there... At least they see very diverse widebody action.

Defiantly not the biggest, but SFB has some unique airlines from Great Britain.

First Choice
flyglobespan
Monarch
MyTravel
Thomas Cook
ThomsonFly
Travel City Direct

and then Icelandair from KEF and G4 who has a focus city there.

I would suggest - Toulouse, Hamburg, Boeing Field and Victorville. If you cannot find it there then it probably does not exist (except Russians I guess).

How many carriers does PEK get?

25 PITops : How many does LAX have?
26 Viscount724 : If by "LON" you mean LHR (LON is a city code, not an airport code), then you would be wrong. LHR doesn't even come close to FRA, CDG and AMS in numbe
27 LAXdude1023 : At my count, 64 not counting the regional carriers. Most foreign flag carriers.
28 Mke717spotter : CUN, while it may not be that big, definately has a big variety of carriers serving it.
29 ZRH : This is not too many. Even ZRH as a much smaller airport has 75 scheduled airlines.
