One of the things that I am often wondering is what airlines fly to/from different airports. I have a pretty good handle on the hubs of different major airlines, and airport served from my own local airports, but a lot of time, especially when trying to figure out good deals or find award space, I start wondering about which airlines fly to different airports.
My go-to tool used to be Airline Route Mapper, but that doesn’t work on Mac and seems to be only rarely updated. The airport pages on Wikipedia also usually have accurate information, but it’s a bit of a hassle to have to look up each airport page individually
FlightsFrom.com – All routes and scheduled flights from every airport
Enter FlightsFrom.com which has an easy to use web interface and in addition to having all non-stop destinations from every airport on every airline, also has schedule information with about 90% coverage. So not only do they show what airlines fly between sets of airports, for many (most) routes they give schedule information, which can be super useful. Google Flights has some of this information but doesn’t include some airlines like Southwest. FlightsFrom.com has Southwest as well as most if not all of the low cost carriers.
Here are a few examples of the types of searches that you can do with FlightsFrom.com. If I look up my home airport of CVG, you can see the following
So you’ve got the route map with all (47) destinations served by CVG. You can see the recently added route which, like I mentioned, includes Southwest Airlines’ new flight to FLL. Blue dots show routes served by only one carrier while green dots show routes served by multiple carriers. Clicking on a 2nd airport will bring up a separate screen that shows you all of the flights (WITH TIMES!) on the date of your choice
Another awesome feature is the ability to look at the weekly schedules for a given route. Again this is CVG-ORD for a particular week
That can give you an idea of the timings for different flights on different dates. Of course a lot of the time the schedules are the same on every day of the week but not always. When my family and I were planning a trip to Orlando, it took me awhile of navigating through Google Flights and checking different dates to find that it’s only on 2 days of the week that Frontier flies MCO-CVG at a “normal” time that isn’t first thing in the morning or super late at night. If I had known about FlightsFrom.com then, I could have easily seen the information I needed in a handy table
It’s Tuesday or Wednesday for the flights that I want if I want to avoid getting in after midnight!
FlightsFrom.com also has an interesting “Fun Facts” section, where they list out different stats, anecdotes and other nuggets of interesting information. If you’re even moderately an av-geek, you’ll definitely want to spend some time here. From the front page, here’s a chart showing all of the flights for today (well, the day I wrote the post)
Or check out numbers of flights by airline, airport or aircraft type
