What would be the best guess if you’re asked to tell the busiest air routes in the world? Dubai-London; New York-London, New York-Atlanta, Beijing-London, Tokyo-Shanghai or any other major American or European cities? Most of the people will certainly choose from these big cities.
But they should be forgiven because none of these cities make it to the busiest air travel routes. As a matter of fact, none of the European or American cities could make it to the top 10 list. The list is dominated by Asian cities – mainly Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Indian.
According to OAG’s data released recently, Jeju International and Seoul Gimpo International Airport make the busiest route with a capacity of 6.561 million seats followed by Sapporo New Chitose Airport and Tokyo International (Haneda) with 6.209 million seats.
Ranked third in the list is Fukuoka and Tokyo International (Haneda) with 5.961 million seats.
Among other in the top 10 are Taipei Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport and Hong Kong International Airport with 4.146 million seats; Delhi and Mumbai with 4.143 million seats; Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi with 4.141 million seats; Beijing Capital International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport with 3.962 million seats; Surabaya and Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta Airport with 3.849 million seats and Tokyo International (Haneda) and Okinawa Naha Airport with 3.784 million seats.
