i would say in terms of cross border City to City O&D Traffic: PAR-LON, LON-DUB
as for domestic routes it should be LON-MAN or some other british domestic O&D .

The european busiest route is Paris-Nice. it used to be Paris-London, but since the Eurostar entered the market in 1994, plane lost 40 % of the market.

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

I don't know if this helps, but the MAN-LON winter frequencies are as follows;

MAN-LHR 12 Daily British Airways 757
MAN-LHR 8 Daily British Midland A321/734/733/735
MAN-LGW 7 Daily British Airways 757/734
MAN-STN 3 Daily British Airways BAe J41

That's 30 Daily services, 27 flown by jets with more than 117 seats. I don't know how that compares with other routes!

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.

Aircraft I've flown: A300/A310/A320/A321/A330/A340/B727/B732/B733/B734/B735/B738/B741/B742/B744/DC10/MD80/IL62/Bae146/AR

Yes, Dub - Lon is it and still growing strongly!

and for information the approximate market shares based on the last data I have were
Aer Lingus 37% (to LHR,STN)
Ryanair 32% (LUT,STN,LGW)
British Midland 20% (LHR)
and then
Cityflyer 7% (LGW)
Cityjet 4% (LCY)

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.
