Number Of Transatlantic Flights Per Day

Mon May 30, 2005 3:17 am

Does anyone have a vague idea of how many transatlantic flights there would be on a daily basis (on average). To be more specific, I am talking about flights (in one direction) from North America (Canada, USA, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean) to Europe. The choice is random, of course. It would take a long time to figure out, but I imagine it can be done. Any ideas?
Next flights: YQM-YYZ-YOW v.v. / YQM-CUN v.v. / YQM-YUL-YWG v.v. / YSJ-YYZ-SEA-SFO / SFO-YYZ-YOW-YQM / YQM-YYZ-MUC-TXL /

Well let me start adding a few o the discussion then we can add them all up once every one has contributed.

Will do Europe to USA.

CO
LGW-EWR x3
LGW-CLE x1
LGW-HOU x2
BHX-EWR x2
MAN-EWR x2
BRS-EWR x1
BFS-EWR x1
GLA-EWR x1 or 2 (11 flights a week)
EDI-EWR x1 or 2 (10 flights a week)

US
LGW-PHL x1
LGW-CLT x1
MAN-PHL x1
GLA-PHL x1
DUB-PHL x1
SNN-PHL x1

NWA
LGW-DTWx1
LGW-MSP x1

AA
LHR-JFK x6
LHR-ORD x5
LGW-DFW x3
LHR-LAX x2
LHR-BOS x2
LHR-MIA x2
LGW-RDU x1
MAN-ORD x1
MAN-MIA x1
MAN-BOS x1
GLA-ORD x1

UA
LHR-IAD 4x
LHR-JFK 2x
LHR-ORD 3x
LHR-LAX 1x
LHR-SFO 2x

BM
MAN-ORD x1
MAN-IAD x1

VS
LHR-JFK x3
LHR-EWR x2
LHR-IAD x1
LHR-MIA x1
LGW-MCO x3
LHR-BOS x1
LHR-LAX x2
LHR-SFO x1
LGW-LAS x1

Thats 79 flights just from the UK and not including BA which must be atleast another 30 flights a day, which I dont even want to think about. I can feel my brain already boiling away.

This also does not include the West Indies, Bahamas, Mexico or Canadian flights. Plus also the numerous number of charter flights that take the Brits accross the Atlantic every day for a dose of Mickey Mouse and Sunshine!

MAD x1
BCN x1 (summer only)
MXP x1
FCO x1

I am not counting how many times a day

Lufthansa-to US Destinations
FRA-JFK, EWR, IAH, IAD, MIA, DTW, DFW, DIA, LAX, SFO, ORD, PDX, ATL, BOS
MUC- ATL, ORD, LAX, SFO, BOS, CLT, IAD

And that is just Lufthansa.... not counting the fact that some destinations have 2 flights daily from Frankfurt and/or Munich.

I've heard a figure of 1,100 quoted before. I've tried to substantiate this with Google but all I could find was a quote: "1999 – Oceanic Area Control Centre handles 334,301 crossings of the Atlantic" - I make that about 916 per day.

Quoting Wdleiser (Reply 3):
Lufthansa-to US Destinations

some more original LH-routes:
FRA: PHL (DIA -> DEN)
MUC: EWR, JFK - but delete ATL (MUC - ATL is only served by DL)
DUS: ORD

P.S.
I find the numbers posted by Geoffm quite impressive !

Hi Wdleiser,
before somebody elso jumps on that waggon: FRA - ATL is operated by LH; its MUC - ATL that´s operated by DL only.

Have fun,
