World's busiest international route? A one-hour flight from Singapore World's busiest international route? A one-hour flight from Singapore

The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route is the world's busiest worldwide flight route with 30,537 flights recorded between March 2017 and February 2018, according to aviation consultancy OAG.

The Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route is the busiest worldwide air link in the world despite the surprising fact that a flight between the two destinations lasts barely more than an hour. The results are pulled from aviation data between March 1, 2017 and February 28.

Other industry experts noted that the expansion of low-priced carriers in Asia has significantly boosted the number of air services between Asian cities, including Singapore-Kuala Lumpur and Singapore-Jakarta.

The busiest route in North America is from LaGuardia (LGA) to Toronto (YYZ) airport, which operated 16,956 scheduled flights between March 2017 and February.

Asia is the world's fastest-growing travel market. The combined OTP of all carriers serving the route from LGA to YYZ is 51 percent - a low average, likely resulting from a combination of the tough winter climates in NY and Toronto, and the combined congestion at the two airports.

The trip between John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport and London Heathrow (LHR) is the second most popular route from the United States, with 13,888 flights serviced over the 12-month period. New York, Laguardia-Toronto 9. The others are City, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and Southend.

He didn't want a farewell tour, like we've seen with other great players recently, including David Ortiz and Derek Jeter . From 2001 to 2010, Ichiro won 10 consecutive Gold Glove Awards and made 10 straight trips to the All-Star Game.

Dubai to Kuwait also cracked the top 20 list.

The Singapore-KL connection topped OAG's busiest worldwide routes rankings with 30,537 flights, compared with 28,887 flights for Hong Kong-Taipei and 23,704 flights for Singapore-Jakarta.

Two operate within Europe, two in North America, one between North America and Europe, while another is in the Middle East, it added.

But while Hong Kong-Taipei has been knocked from the top spot, Hong Kong remains Asia's busiest airport hub with six of the top 20 busiest global routes, compared to Singapore's four and Seoul Incheon's and Osaka Kinsai's three.

A majority of the most highly trafficked air routes were in Asia, with 14 out of the top 20 being in the region.
