Don't know anything about the Paris - Nice route, but I don't know for sure. The Most bussiest routes I know of in Europe are:
- Amsterdam - London (Heathrow, Stansted,Gatwick and Luton)
- Paris - London
- London - Manchester
- Frankfurt - Berlin??? Don't know for sure but there are a hell of a lot of flights between these cities. As well as for Milan - Rome

Here we go again!!! just Kidding!!!!
The busiest International route in the world, and thus the busiest International route in Europe is Dublin-London (Heathrow, Gatwick, London City, Luton, Stansted). The route has on average 70 flights a day and carriers over 5 million people a year. London Paris use to be, but with the Eurostar, the figures on this route are down to about 2 1/2 million from about 4 million a year.

Yes it's London to Dublin and with Ryanair adding flights with prices starting at £5 return (actually £24 after tax) if you can get one, no guesses who'll be number one soon. London-Dublin has grown dramatically in the last five years since no frills flights have taken off in the UK, now people don't think twice about calling Ryanair where as before they thought cheap fares meant no maintainence not merely no meals and also couldn't afford the monopolistic prices charged by Aer Lingus and British Midland. The route is a little gold mine and I would guess the reason behind Ryanairs profits.
