What are the 10 busiest domestic airline routes in the world?
OAG Aviation puts together a list each year of the busiest domestic and international routes in the world, based upon number of flights.
That’s not a perfect picture, since a 50-seat regional jet earns the same vote as a 400-seat A380. The study does, however, only include jet aircraft.
Here’s a look at the 10 busiest domestic airline routes in 2017, counting down from #10:
10. Beijing (PEK) to Shanghai (SHA) – 30,029 flights in 2017
9. Cape Town (CPT) to Johannesburg (JNB) – 31,914 flights in 2017
8. Brisbane (BNE) to Sydney (SYD) – 33,765 flights in 2017
7. Los Angeles (LAX) to San Francisco (SFO) – 34,897 flights in 2017
6. Sapporo (CTS) to Tokyo (HND) – 38,289 flights in 2017
5. Rio de Janerio (CGH) to Sao Paulo (SDU) – 39,325 flights in 2017
4. Fukuoka (FUK) to Tokyo (HND) – 42,835 flights in 2017
3. Mumbai (BOM) to Delhi (DEL) – 47,462 flights in 2017
2. Melbourne (MEL) to Sydney (SYD) – 54,519 flights in 2017
1. Jeju (CJU) to Seoul (GMP) – 64,991 flights in 2017
You’ll notice only one pair of U.S. airports on the list, the busy intra-California corridor. #12 on the list is New York La Guardia to Chicago and #15 is New York Kennedy to Los Angeles. #13 and 18 are both Colombian domestic routes (BOG-MDE and BOG-CLO).
