A new report by an air-travel information company says Singapore to Kuala Lumpur is the busiest international air route. In the year ending February 2018, 30,537 flights flew between the two cities. There were 84 flights every day - one flight every 17 minutes. The route is covered by national and budget airlines. The flight time between the two cities is under an hour. Asia has the top seven busiest international air routes. Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul and Osaka have the busiest traffic. New York LaGuardia to Toronto, and Dubai to Kuwait were the busiest routes outside of Asia.

The report had more statistics on how busy the skies were. The busiest route for passengers was Hong Kong to Taipei. More than 6.5 million people flew this route. Singapore-Jakarta was second, with 4.7 million; followed by Singapore-KL, with 4 million passengers. The world's busiest domestic air route was between Seoul and the Korean island of Jeju. In 2017, 65,000 flights flew that route, with almost 180 flights a day - one every seven-and-a-half minutes. The only long-haul route in the top-20 list was New York JFK to London Heathrow.
