The Most Connected Airport in the World

I am not thinking of the number of carriers that serves a specific airport, but the airlines that represent a country. For example: London Heathrow must be having carriers from roughly 100 countries maybe??

^ Yeah I would guess the large European hubs like Heathrow would have the widest variety of carriers owing to geography and historical connections.

I thought we had a thread about this a long long time ago. I'd think a European airport would win this one as well.

I reckon it's probably Paris CDG, it has flights from several African and Pacific countires that other major airports don't. Could also be Frankfurt, cause it serves more destinations than any other airport.

My money's on Heathrow. A lot of airlines serve it, though Paris could be close.

What about regionally? In North America, JFK? LAX? Pearson?

Copenhagen has 132 destinations, so it comes in at number 7 on GregPz's list...

Most of this forums post questions that always repeat themselves we had a thread like this 2 days ago. It was said that there is no question:

London Heathrow has more international passenger traffic

Why! you ask because Europe is roughly bigger than Texas! all Eurozone countries whih NOw! they are not suposed to have borders all arrivals and departure to Europe which is roughly 50% of Heathrow traffic is consider international

Now the U.S

#1 Hartsfield, Atlanta Busiest Airport by passenger volume

#1 Chicago Ohare Worlds Busiest airport traffic airport

#1 Memphis tenesse world busiest cargo traffic airport

#1 American Airlines worlds largest fleet

#1 delta Airline worlds busiest airline

#1 Faa worlds biggest and most important aviationadministrator in the world!

#1 New York city with most international airplane arrivales in the world
NYC has 3 large international gateways and 10 regional airports that received millions of international passengers

London have several international airports but only you can compare Heathrow and maybe Gatwick to the size and traffic of NYC airports


Allof this data is avialable.

www.wikipedia.org/ airports

www.airlines.net

www.answers.com

www.faa.gov.usa

When are you going to stop comparing your small little world tothe U.S!

London Heathrow is the world's busiest international airport, getting airlines from virtually every country in the world.

132 would be the total number overall. The list I posted was just for the day - not all destinations are served everyday. For the day CPH had around 100 destinations.

I strongly doubt LHR is linked to the most countries. Numerous African & Pacific countries are only linked to France.

I would put my money on London Heathrow. According to the BAA Heathrow handles flights to 180 destinations in over 90 countries. However after looking through the BAA site and the various other websites I can only come up 82 nations so if any one in the know wants to fill out the rest then go ahead! I'm sure there are mistakes in there somewhere too if anyone wants to point them out. Also I purpose did not include every airlines from each country, usually just one or two examples. These are passenger airlines only and are only airlines that (as far as i can tell) fly into Heathrow with their own planes. No codeshares. No charter operators either. Only regular scheduled passenger services.

Algeria (Air Algerie)
Argentina (Aerolineas Argentinas)
Australia (Qantas)
Austria (Austrian Airlines)
Bahrain (Gulf Air)
Bangladesh (Biman)
Belgium (SN Brussels Airlines)
Brazil (VARIG Brazilian Airlines)

Land area:
Texas: 678,354 square kilometres.
Europe: 3,976,372 square kilometres.

Also do you have a source for the data on 50% of Heathrow flights going to Europe? Assuming that the 50% figure is correct then the 50% of passengers that aren't going to European countries still number more than the international passengers at any US airport. That airport would be JFK which had 18,525,260 international passengers in 2005.

If any airport was going to give Heathrow a run for its money than it would be out of Frankfurt or Paris CDG I would think. Paris could possibly serve more than Heathrow but I don't have any figures to check out.

By the way keep in mind that this is for the number of countries that serve a particular airport with their own airline. Hence why Mexico is not on my list above because only BA serves it and they are British. No Mexican airline flies the route.

I think it is indeed your world which is small. Most of the forumers here are quite aware of the US stats and possitions and a large percentage have travelled to the US (and Europe,Asia,etc..) and have a good knowledge of the US (and other world regions).

However I dont get the impression that you are able te reciprocate this knowledge as your world seems to go as far as your backyard and no further.
The thing is. You havent posted one thing that we dont already know. We know all about ATL,ORD,LAX,JFK,MIA etc...etc.
Your posts dont provide any new information what so ever apart from your misguided perception of NYC being the worlds intercontinental airtraffic hub.

I'll give you another one for your list..

LAX is the worlds busiest ''end destination'' airport (that is non transiting passengers).

London Heathrow or New York JFK surely.

Definately not an Australian/Pacific Airport.

In Asia, Tokyo Narita, Hong Kong, Changi (Singapore) or Bangkok would be the most likely.

^ And Pacific!

Air New Zealand and Qantas don't fly to France anymore.
Qantas does fly to London and Frankfurt though. They used to do Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Manchester & Moscow too.
