Airport With Most Long Haul Routes

Tue Aug 17, 2004 8:15 am

Which airport serves the most destinations let's say 2500 nm away and beyond nonstop? In other words, the airport with the most jet flight destinations 6.5 hours away or greater is... I'm not talking frequencies, but actual separate destinations. I'd assume it's probably LHR, JFK, FRA, or CDG. What do you think?

I would think HNL, NRT, HKG, and LHR would all be close. LAX, JFK, SYD??

There is a lot of guessing, so if I may join in... JHS (in Greenland) is my guess.  Laugh out loud Or maybe just a remote airport in Antarctica!
Sorry guys... my dream this night didn't contain a lot of humor (it wasn't a nightmare, just an ordinary one). Being awake, now I try to catch up. Smile

You mentioned the restrictions and it must be possible to calculate based on them.
If I were to calculate the result, I would first get a list (with the relevant info) of all the non-stop flights (on a certain day) from the maybe Top 100 airports with the most flights. Then put them into e.g. a GIS program and program this program to perform the calculations. Sorting the result afterwards will end up with the result.
It would be obvious to make comments on how much or little the traffic pattern should change before the list would change. I other words, how unstable is this list, is a close race.
Another perspective would the to include data from longer periods of time to view your question over time (historical view).

Not really the answer you were looking for US A333 PIT, but this is my idea for how to find the result you are looking for.

DXB perhaps? I would think that there might be fewer shorthaul or domestic flights at this airport when compared with the likes of LHR, FRA, CDG and JFK but I am only guessing.
