Busiest International Routes ...

Sat Dec 02, 2000 8:36 am

The busiest international route is New york-London and the second being London-Paris. What are some of the other busiest international routes in the world..... maybe routes in the far east .... linking HKG,SIN,NRT,KUL,SYD ...etc........... waiting for your comments !!
It would be interesting to know which particualr airline/airlines have the biggest chunk of that particular route....

Ummm...you all forgot London-Dublin. With lots of flights (rought number escapes me, but 70 rings a bell) flights daily, it is the busiest route. The traditional holder London-Paris, is no longer as TGV has cut down on the number of air travellers between those two cities.

I believe Aer Lingus is the busiest airline on the route.

I would think HKG-TPS would be the busiest route in the far east with many many flights a day by 6 or 7 carriers serving on this route.

Also the Singapore-Kuala Lumpa, Amsterdam-London, Seoul, HK and Honolulu to Tokyo as well as Chicago-Toronto flight route. And I think that Hong Kong-Tapei is the busiest route in terms of passengers in the World. The second busiest is the London-Paris then London-NYC.

My answer will be SIN-KUL and SIN-CGK in the Far East Region.

SIN-KUL flights departs like once every 30 mins, from 7 AM to midnight.

SIN-CGK by SQ and GA alone count for 15 flights daily, plus TG, KL and LH (daily); EK (daily, except Mon, Wed and Sat); QF (daily, except Tue and Thu); AF (Mon, Wed, and Sat); AI (Wed, Thu, and Sun).

SIN-CGK was also served by CX, SR, and PK, although they temporarily stop the service.

The ICAO Stat Yearbook (publ Oct 99) says that in 1997 Hong Kong-Taipei was the busiest international route, with about 15% more pax than London-Dublin or London-New York. It doesn't say what the busiest intra-Japan or intra-US or intra-Austalia routes are.

There are also many flights between Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile. Lan Chile has many flights a day. So does Aerolineas Argentinas. Also just about every European Airline serving Santiago (besides Swissair) goes through Buenos Aires. So that's Air France, Lufthansa, and Iberia all with big A340s, 777s or 747s. Also Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires. There is also twice a week an Avianca flights as a continuation from Santa fe de Bogota. There are many Varig and Aerolineas flights. Along with a couple from Trans Brasil and one by VASP. There's also a connecting between the two cities on Swissair (only some days a week) and daily on Canadian/Air Canada. There are a lot of 737s on the route but one of the Varig flights is on MD-11 and one of the Aerolineas flights is on a 747.
I don't think that this totally is considered the longest but one of the two are the most in Latin America.

also on domestic note, somebody should try to pull up the number of daily flights between tpe and khh.
probably the busiest route worldwide

TPE-HKG is so great route, but some arguments are still possible: Is it really a international one rather than domestic? Without Taiwan's limited destinations, will so many taiwanese fly to HKG to get flights to all over world? Besides, it's still the busiest, of course.

Some other route; In a case of SEL-NRT, it was proved to be 8th officially, but there is some irony. NW and UA operates both 1 and 2 daily 747 flights in this route to make use of their NRT hub, but Korean and Japanese liners cannot get more slots, actually their oppertunities are reduced for many years. In this route almost 10 daily flights, most by 747s, are operated, and seats are run out months ago. Even K-J govts negotiate to operate SEL-KIX-HND transfering route.

I bet the real winner to be London-New York, it cannot be judged by mere the fact of number.

For long-haul flights of Thai Int'l Airways would be from Bangkok to London or Paris or either Bangkok to Los Angeles.

Just to correct you there KHI747, as far as I know Dublin - London overtook London - Paris as the busiest route with approx. 80 round trips a day

Dublin is a business center, THE business center of Ireland. JFK/EWR-LHR/LGW is by far the busiest international, while JFK-LAX is the largest domestic route I believe in the world.

Do you know why HKG-TPE and vice versa is so popular?Because the mainland China forbids Taiwanese to directly fly to any Chinese city,so they must fly to either Hong Kong or Macau,and switch to a domestic flight on either Shanghai Airways(Macau),China Eastern,China Southern,China Northwest and Air China(Hong Kong)

Followed by (in no particular order)Syd-Sin, Syd-Lax, Mel-Sin, Mel-Akl, Syd-Nrt, Bne-Akl, Per-Sin, Syd-Bkk, Syd-Hkg.

KHI747

I like your approach; however I do not know where to get the statistics.
I was however able to get following for the TPE-KHH route – I make that 65 (sixty-five) flights per day and that is between two airports.
Below excludes the flights between CKS (international TPE airport) and KHH, there is another dozen of those (DAILY) – this is only the domestic airport of Sung Shan, right in downtown Taipei – that also explains the limited operating hours, eg curfew….

I am not questioning the claim to fame of dub-lon and los angeles – nyc, but can somebody tell us how many flights there are between those city pairs (not asking for dub-lhr, dub-lgw, dub-std or the variety of LA airports to the variety of new york airports)

So, what kind of a/cs be runned in TPE-KHH? I'm heart that there is not so many widebodies in Taiwan. Well, it doesn't look proper to argue about domestic flights. It could be right to attack "Is it really international inside EU?", however.

Some kind of busy, SEL-PUS will be something. 60 to 70 of daily flights, almost by widers like A330 and B767, or HND-CTS or HND-FUK, about 50 returns daily, half of'em by Japanese noted domestic 747s.

the equipment used on tpe-khh routes is listed after the flight number - and you are right that they are all narrow bodies
