Most Popular Flight Destinations from Amsterdam Schiphol AMS

What are the most popular flight destinations for your airport? Where do people usually arrive to your city from and how often?

Now we can say!

We are introducing new statistics page for airports called “Most Popular Destinations“. This page is available for every airport having flight schedules (static or live: doesn’t matter) supported (which is more than 500 airports currently!) and at least one departure flight performed during the last week.

This page shows:

  • Approximate average total number of flights daily (both departures and arrivals).
  • Total number of flight destinations during the last week.
  • Interactive map including recognized* destinations (powered by Google Maps).
  • And finally, the list of the most popular destinations grouped by number of daily flights!

Each page has a URL like: https://spotterlead.net/EHAM/destinations (you can replace EHAM with ICAO-code of your airport).

* Recognized destination – is an airport which was unmistakably identified by our system. This can be a result of airport codes coming from a data provider of this or that flight (e.g. in case if  an airport site publishes airport codes directly on its departures & arrivals page). Alternatively, airport of departure/arrival may be identified by our flight record joining algorithm as a useful side-effect. This algorithm is being used for quite a while in our system for a sole purpose of merging data records concerning one and the same flight (but retrieved from different airport data sources) into one combined flight  leg item having both departure and arrival data. Such flight legs are used on our Flight Search page actively. Now, this data is also used to recognize destinations for flights having no destination IATA or ICAO code provided directly by airport data source.

Monday Statistics

Monday is a hard day,  but it’s never a wrong day for some statistics.

SpotterLead.net now has Flights Live tracking for 181 airports in Europe, Asia and North America. The best coverage is in Norway, Spain, Russia, Finland and Sweden. Quite a few airports  is supported in Germany, Great Britain and Poland.

Since the 1st of May, 2016 we tracked 2+ million flight records, including 192k+ codeshared flight records.

When joined together, two flight records from different airports produce a flight which tracked from both origin and destination. Currently, there are 319k+ fully tracked flight legs in our database.

You can find your flight and see historical data in our Flights Status section.

Have a good week!
