Airlines Of The 6 Continent Club

Tue May 31, 2011 6:45 am

Hello fellow a.netters.

I've been wanting to see which airlines fly to all 6 continents in the world. A list of which I am aware of can be found here.

BA
SQ
DL
UA
CO
QF
MH
EK (contributed by kiwiandrew)
SA (contributed by kiwiandrew)

Several airlines (like SQ and MH) only fly to 1 destination in a certain continent (e.g. South America). I believe this is not the complete list. Do feel free to add to the list!

KE are a member of the 6 continent club. They fly to CAI in Africa & GRU in South America + all the usual suspects in the other continents.

I can't believe I forgot them .

I was about to add CA but realised, much to my shock, that they don't serve any destinations in Africa ( very odd considering how much money China has been pouring in to Africa over the last few years. )

It seems to be always the same two continents that limit this list. Oceania is very underserved by European Carriers (as most of them codeshare). While, South America is underserved by Asian Carriers.

Africa would be the third continent, but it isn't the ultra-long distance really hindering them, but the size of the market. They are just generally a bit too far for too small a market.

CO? I don't think so. If you count NAN as Australia/Oceania. I'm not sure if they ever started EWR-CAI though. I know there's been talk. But did it ever start?

They are starting LOS in November and they fly GUM-CNS (on CS) so pretty much they can be considered a 6-continent carrier albeit in the future.

Doesn't AF fly to six continents? (Does PPT count as Australia?)
