71% fewer international flights operated this year than in 2019
There were 406,060 international flights operated by the UK this year: 71% less than in 2019 before Covid, When there were nearly 1.4 million airlines from Great Britain. Data put out by Cirium indicates this, according to which the busiest international route is the one between London Heathrow and New York JFK. And this is despite the fact that the United States only reopened its borders last November. The two cities have connected five airlines, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and newcomers to JetBlue, which has operated more than 2,410 flights.
At the level of single stops, it was not surprising that London Heathrow was the most connected to international routes (78,820 flights) followed by London Stansted (32,070), Manchester (29,690), London Gatwick (25,960) and London Luton (19,770). Our analysis – Cirium CEO confirms, Jeremy Bowen — shows how domestic traffic (even here not surprisingly, editor), has held up a little better than that in foreign countries, where numbers are 60% lower than pre-Covid levels.”
