INTERNATIONAL. The latest flight frequency numbers for all UK airports from OAG Worldwide make fascinating reading, underlining the overwhelming domination of London Heathrow Airport.
Under an agreement just reached with The Moodie Report, OAG will provide regular snapshots of real-time weekly flight frequencies from various countries and regions, giving a useful guideline to current traffic levels and ranking (nationally, regionally and globally) of the world’s airports.
Provided as a sample of things to come, the attached spreadsheet shows all UK airports for the week 15-21 November by flight frequencies (departing, non-stop, passenger, operating flights). In coming weeks this will be extended to cover the world's leading airports, including year-on-year comparisons for trend purposes.
