Global rankings: These were the busiest flight routes in 2023

Global rankings: These were the busiest flight routes in 2023

The analysis shows which flight routes will have the highest seating capacity in 2023. There is a new leader in international routes.

One thing becomes clear at first glance: Europe and the United States rarely play in the Premier League. Aviation data provider OAG analyzed which flight routes had the most seats available from January to December 2023. When it comes to international routes, only one European city and one US city were represented in the top ten.

The New York-JFK-London-Heathrow route ranks eighth with about 3.9 million seats. This represents a one percent increase from 2019, which was also enough for eighth place at the time. When it comes to domestic routes, Europe and the United States are not even represented in the top ten. The Jeddah-Riyadh line in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ranks eighth with 7.9 million seats.

Asia dominates

The Australian route Melbourne – Sydney also reached fifth place with 9.3 million seats. All other eight busy connections are in Asia.
