Mabrian: The world’s best countries for international flight connectivity

Wednesday, 07 Feb, 2024 0

The UK is the second most connected nation for air travel, according to newly released data from tourism intelligence firm Mabrian.

It released a ranking for the top 10 countries in terms of the number of available seats during the first half of 2024.

The US has the best international connectivity with 83.5 million seats followed by the UK with 72.5 million.

The analysis, based on flight schedules, reveals a significant evolution in the connectivity landscape.

Still, European countries have seen a big increase in connectivity with China since last year, collectively offering 1.98 million air seats.

This marks an impressive 190% increase compared to the first half of 2023.

China now allows nationals of Spain and four other European Union countries to enter China without a visa for up to 15 days.


Top 10 countries with the best international connectivity:

United States: 83,540,022 seats

United Kingdom: 72,806,356 seats

Germany: 53,650,569 seats

Spain: 53,402,095 seats

United Arab Emirates: 41,829,422 seats

France: 41,148,774 seats

Italy: 39,233,697 seats

China: 35,125,071 seats

Turkey: 32,514,540 seats

Japan: 28,851,733 seats


The total air seats for these 10 countries amount to 482,102,279, contributing to 42% of the global international air seats in the first half of the year.

Carlos Cendra, CMO at Mabrian, said: “Anticipating the potential of origin markets regarding their outbound air connectivity is a key factor in identifying where tourist demand will be.”

“However, it is essential to analyse each destination specifically”.

Gavin Eccles, director of air connectivity specialist GE Consulting, says: “The robust outbound markets of the UK and Germany are also experiencing significant growth in seats and connections.”

“If growth continues, 2024 could surpass 2019 as the year with the highest international connections.”
