World’s busiest air routes revealed

Currently taking place in Guangzhou (China), World Routes 2018 was the launch pad for the publication of the 2017 world airline statistics.

Although the US remains the world’s largest aviation market, the analysis by Routesonline found that air services in the Asia-Pacific region dominate the top 100 busiest routes by passenger numbers, accounting for more than 70% of the total.

With more than 13.4m seats on offer, the 280 mile short-haul domestic service journey from Seoul's Gimpo Airport to the holiday island of Jeju wins as the world’s busiest air sector. The route has an average of 180 scheduled flights per day, one every eight minutes.  It carried a staggering 4,369,364 more people than the second busiest, Melbourne – Sydney Kingsford Smith.

Although the US remains the world’s largest aviation market, the analysis by Routesonline found that air services in the Asia-Pacific region dominate the top 100 busiest routes by passenger numbers, accounting for more than 70% of the total.

Hong Kong – Taoyuan (Taiwan) is the busiest international route with 6,719,029 passengers flying the 500 miles in 2017. But London – New York, 3,470 miles, does remarkably well with 4.5m split over two airports at either end.  It is easily number two.
