Going by the passenger numbers of airports in a 100km radius its definitely London.

Passenger figures are not representative of # of aircraft. For example, some US airports that have lower pax than heathrow have more anual movements.

It is NYC IMO or LA. NYC has 4 busy airports, JFK,LGA,EWR,TEB basically beside each other.

Actually, the North East USA with the airports of: IAD,BWI,DCA,PHL,JFK,EWR,LGA,BOS, etc..

For NYC You have: Newark with around 300,000 movments / year, same with JFK and LGA with around 270,000. That's a lot of aircraft movements.

Los Angeles is, if you count the huge number of private aircraft operating in the area. Van Nuys airport, probably one that nobody has ever heard of has as many aircraft movements as DFW or LAX.

If you only mean scheduled commercial service, its probably London or NY.

I'd imagine London. Several very busy airports, in a not to large area...And thats just the planes landing and taking off! I've flown over London several times...

I agree lots of planes over central London, LHR is the worlds busiest airport so is the airspace over London.

Think its the Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt triangel. Could be easily extended to a trapez with London included. Just insanse traffic figures for small area. Keep in mind, there are heaps of midsize airports (eg., Dusseldorf, Cologne, Brussels etc) inside this area.

I think it is the airspace over the North-Eastern US, North-Western EU and Central-Eastern Honshu JP.

But in all seriousness, I dont see why Midwest US is so mpty when Chicago has the second busiest airport in the US

Yeah this seems more accurate. Its hard for me to believe that the US is that barren with the exception of the East Coast
