We'll never settle what's the busiest route in the world, but let's try to nail down which airport-pairs have the most flights.

These totals from http://www.oag.com might be off by one or two due to undetected codeshare duplication, but hopefully these are close to the correct numbers of nonstop jet schedules (on 12 Aug) from

SDU to CGH: 88. Surely no other airport-pair can beat that? Or ever could?
TSA to KHH: 61. Current second place?
SYD to MEL: 55. Current third place? (Getting shaky now.)
HND to CTS: 49. And almost all widebodies, unlike the others.
HNL to OGG: 46, or 47 if you include the nonstop Dash 8. Dunno if this is fifth in the world, but it must be first in the US.
TPE to HKG: 37. Another all-widebody passenger/seat-count contender.
MAD to BCN: 40. Is that the top airport-pair in Europe? (LHR-DUB: 23)

Note that all the above are one-way totals. Seems to me that around 1990, before Southwest glommed onto Oakland, SFO-LAX had 75 flights, but now they're down to 30. Other US airport-pairs like LGA-ORD (32) have never had particularly impressive counts.

I would think US numbers overall would be lower with the higher numbers of Multiple city airports.

i.e. Houston-Dallas has many flights, around 50 at last count just between 4 different airports IAH-HOU-DAL-DFW

Interesting list indeed.Thanks

as far as the busiest route in pax numbers i don't know.....but in flight numbers between two cities i would say sao paulo-rio is very busy. see bellow
acording to the site digirotas.com.br(all portuguese) that is updated every 15 days.

sao paulo airports are CGH and GRU
rio airports are SDU and GIG

the most common route is CGH-SDU with 95 flights a day. flights are flown with b-733,735,737,a-319,erj-145 a curious fact is that the airlines serve a full meal on this 50 min flight.

the route GRU-GIG is flown mostly by the big boys from varig, that arrive from the int'l flights with a stop in GRU continuing onto GIG. flights are flown with b-733,738,762,763,m-11,f-100,777 and a-300 on a total of 22 a day.

the route CGH-GIG has only 12 flights a day and its flown with 737 and f-100

it comes to a total of 129 flights between sao paulo and rio on the weekdays.

thats all folks

Hi,

What about the high frequency shuttle routes in the United States. Like Delta Shuttle and US Airways Shuttle have flights between DCA-LGA-BOS hourly, so between the two there is a flight out of LGA-BOS every half hour. There is also a few main line airlines flying this route, so the frequency is more than one half an hour. Because Trans State Airlines also operates the LGA-BOS route. Anyone have exact numbers?

...an LGA-BOS flight every half-hour from 0600 to 2130, plus a Delta 0600 flight-- so that's 33 flights. If anyone can find more somewhere let us know.

So when does Eagle (or whatever) start LGA-BOS?

...88 weekday nonstops from LAX to SFO:

UA on the hour 0700-2100 and on the half-hour 0730-1830
US on the hour 0700-2300
DL on the hour 0600-2100, plus 0100
AA hourly 0645-2145 (all with 737-200s or 146s)

plus 3 CO, 6 PA, 1 AS and 1 TW. This is doubtless the all-time record for a US airport-pair; it only lasted a few months.

London-Dublin is around 40/50 I would think
About 14 Aer Lingus to LHR(all 321s?)
About 14 Ryanair to STN,4 to LTN,4 to LGW(Manston too soon?) (732s+8s)
British Airways from LGW is about 4/5 daily I think(B146s)
Aer Lingus to LCY about 4 daily?(B146s)
British Midland from LHR is around 4 or 5 daily too.(320s+321s)
Aer Lingus to LGW 3daily(B735s)

But, since this thread refers only to airport-pairs, London-Dublin is not a contender.

I think there are 22 flights a day between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore - Malaysia Airlines operating mainly 737-4H6s with the A330-300 and 777-2H6ER used during peak hours. Singapore Airlines flies only A310-300s and 777-212ERs into Kuala Lumpur whilst a morning service uses the A340-300E.

At peak holiday periods - extra flights are laid on and the aircraft are often swapped to Boeing 747-400s when required (perhaps one of the shortest 747-400 segments at only 35 mins).

Apart from that Japan Airlines operates a once daily roundtrip with traffic rights using an MD11.

I have a xerox of the relevent page of the 1Aug90 OAG; let me know if you want a copy. USAir's service was the continuation of PSA; DL had just started hourly service a few months before.
