Which Airport Has The Most Intl. Airlines?

Tue Feb 10, 2009 12:18 am

This topic has been discussed more than 1 year ago but would like to get more feedback and updated information. The previous discussion was for both domestic and Int. airlines, but this one is only for Int. carriers.

As mentioned in the topic, Which airport has the most scheduled international airlines?

Also which airport has the most Int. airlines? (in their own region) for example. in Europe which airport? in Africa? southeast Asia? N. America? S.America?

Thanks,

If I'm not mistaken, FRA is the airport served by the most airlines, 129 to 307 destinations in 109 countries ...

http://www.airportcity-frankfurt.com.../rubrik/9/9946.traffic_figures.htm

... according to the information in the above post, LHR has just over 90 airlines serving 170 destinations.

Quoting Raffik (Reply 3):
London Heathrow is the world's busiest International airport

Correct, based on passenger numbers. But the thread starter is asking ....

Quoting KU747 (Thread starter):
As mentioned in the topic, Which airport has the most scheduled international airlines?

.... which, if I'm not mistaken would put FRA in the number one spot.

EDIT: LHR is the busiest in terms of international passengers. Based on overall passenger numbers, ORD and ATL are busier.

In South America, most definitly GRU.

In North America, it used to MIA, but with the collapse of so many Latin and Caribbean carriers in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the honor now goes to JFK.

That's not what the thread starter is asking.

Not sure about the number of airlines, but FRA, CDG and AMS all have direct service to significantly more destinations than LHR. I think FRA is first, followed by CDG, then AMS (or AMS may be ahead of CDG, can't remember).

SYD in Australiasia has the most for that region.
I'd imagine either HKG or SIN has the most for Asia.
56 types. 38 countries. 24 airlines.

Based on overall number of passengers annually as well as, if I'm not mistaken, aircraft movements, then yes.

But not on number of international airlines serving the airport as the thread starter requested.

You can't say that without data on other airports like FRA/CDG/AMS which have fare more destinations with direct flights than LHR. Even if you eliminate domestic destinations (which are zero or almost zero from AMS) I wouldn't be surprised if FRA and CDG have more direct destinations than LHR. That of course doesn't indicate total capacity since a much higher proportion of LHR flights use widebodies than from most other airports in Europe.

I believe BKK has more airlines served than HKG or SIN. Lots of tourists visit Thailand both schedule and charters also. If not first, BKK is definitely in the TOP 3 for Asia
Barrow, Alaska in Feb. It was Cold!

Poor you, second time you are repeating this. Big grin

No one is really getting question. One each continent, which airport sees the highest number of International airlines. Not busy in terms of airplanes, or passengers or nothing of soft, just which has the most international airlines..

So North America,

I would go out on a limb here:

North America - JFK?
Europe - FRA?
South America - GRU?
There is something special about planes....

I would tend to agree as MAH4546 pointed that out earlier.

Anyone want to guess for Canada? YYZ or YUL?

Thats pretty impressive  Wow!

The source I provided in regards to FRA has 129 pax airlines as well as 31 cargo airlines. I don't know if those are just dedicated cargo airlines or pax airlines cargo divisions as well. Regardless, thats still pretty impressive for an airport that is a sea of LH white, blue and yellow Big grin

What I would expect too, since there are no domestic flights for either airport.
