Dublin-London Heathrow is called Europe's busiest air route

Singapore-Kuala Lumpur is the busiest air route in the world, with 30 537 flights in one year, according to the study.


The world's busiest international route is 1-hour flights linking small countries to neighbouring countries.

The planes made 30 537 trips between Singapore and Malaysia, capital Kuala Lumpur, in the 12-month period. According to the report released by OAG Aviation Worldwide Ltd. This being equivalent to 84 flights in one day, in a state city, with only 5.6 million population.

In a Top 20 list Asia dominates with the highest classification of routes outside the region, being between New York and Toronto, with 16 956 flights connected to this route. The trips between Dublin and London Heathrow occupy the 14th place on the list, being in the busiest of Europe with 14 390 flights entered.

In terms of the number of passengers, Hong Kong bound for Taipei, they lead the list with 6.5 million of people to fly in the period of 12 months. Thus following Jakarta to Singapore with 4.7 million and Kuala Lumpur to Singapore with 4 million.

Asia has the world's fastest travel market. But even the most frenetic international routes do not arrive near the most popular domestic flights. The world's busiest air route, Bar None, is between Seoul and a small island on the coast of South Korea. The planes made 65,000 trips between the South Korean capital and the island of Jeju in 2017, according to OAG-Bloomberberg.
