Mumbai-Delhi third busiest air route globally

According to a report in The DNA, the world’s busiest air route isn’t London to Paris or New York to Los Angeles, but the trip between Seoul and a tiny island off the coast of South Korea. Planes made 65,000 trips between the Korean capital and Jeju island -- a journey of little more than an hour -- in 2017, equivalent to 178 flights a day, according to OAG Aviation Worldwide Ltd data. That’s almost double the 35,000 trips on the busiest North American route: Los Angeles to San Francisco. Asian cities dominated the list, cementing the region’s status as the world’s fastest-growing travel market. After Melbourne-Sydney it was Mumbai-Delhi as the third busiest route. The flight, taking less than two hours, connects the businesses of Mumbai with the political establishment in Delhi. An aviation boom means fares can be as cheap as a train ticket -- and that journey takes about 16 hours.
