This Is the World's Busiest Air Route
New York City to Paris has nothing on this route.
The world’s most in-demand flight is the 280-mile jaunt between Seoul Gimpo International and Jeju International, according to Routes Online. More than 1.28 million passengers made the trip between the two South Korean airports in July.
Second on the list is between Sapporo and Tokyo Haneda, with 688,394 passengers, meaning the top spot is nearly double in demand.
To keep up with this demand, as the Telegraph reports, planes leave Seoul Gimpo International almost as regularly as your morning train (or even more frequently in some cases), with flights that leave at 6:10 a.m., 6:20 a.m. , 6:25 a.m., 6:40 a.m. and 6:55 a.m. You get the picture.
So, why are so many people dying to go to Jeju Island?
It’s a premiere vacation spot. With beautiful beaches, volcanic landscapes, underground caves, and plenty of hiking and other outdoor activities, it’s the perfect place to go if you’re looking for an island getaway.
There are also casinos for people who are tired of basking in the sun, as well as a (ahem) sex-themed amusement park called Jeju Love Island. The theme park is particularly popular with young newlyweds on their honeymoon.
Clearly this place has everything a traveler would want.
