Hi there,

What are the routes in your country with the highest daily Passenger numbers ?
Which Airlines serve these Routes and with which types of Aircraft ?

I heard that inside Japan some Routes are flown up to 20 times a day with 747´s in service.

Here in Israel its the TLV-ETH, operated by Arkia (753, 752, 732, ATR72 & DHC-7), Israir (73G & ATR42) and El Al (73G/8, 752). you can find up to 25 (and more...) flights a day in this route, from both Ben-Gurion airport (TLV) and Dov airport (SDV) to Eilat.

Here in Finland, HEL-OUL. Finnair uses DC-9, MD-80, B757 and, I guess, A320 as well.

Air Botnia, the other Finnish airline, doesn't fly this route.

In Japan, the heaviest route is Tokyo-Sapporo. It is flown numerous times each day by JAS, JAL, and ANA all with jumbos (the last time I checked). The next heaviest is Tokyo-Fukuoka.

By far, the answer is YUL-YYZ for Canada.

Air Canada fills widebodies like A330s, A340s and 767s every hour from dawn to dusk on weekdays! The journey is only one hour long!

In second place is YYZ-YVR. Air Canada and Canadian Airlines fill A320s, 767s, A330s, A340s and 747s on an hourly basis (I think) during the daytime.

Internationally (not counting the States), the heaviest route is YYZ-London, with about ten flights a day on Air Canada (A330s, A340s, 747s, 767s), British Airways (747s, 777s), and various charters, including Canada 3000 (A330s?), Air Transat (A330s or L1011s?), Royal Airlines (A330s), etc. Only Air Canada and British Airways fly to LHR. The others fly to LGW.

Pretty good for a country with only 30 million people!

If you consider the Bay area airports(SFO,SJC&OAK) to the airports in the LA basin(LAX,BUR,ONT &Long Beach) you have the heaviest air traffic in the word. Add SAn to the mix then it really gets busy!
