To Which Destinations can you fly From a Specific Airport?

airport

Have you ever looked for a map with all the destinations and routes, that are served from a specific airport? While many airports publish a flight plan on their website, they usually don’t show a nice map with all the flights. Luckily, there are at least two ways to find detailed information for every airport on earth on the internet!

What is this good for? You could be looking for a new travel destination from your city’s airport, want to check if there are flights to a city close to your destination, to which the flights might be cheaper, want to know which airlines serve a certain route …

Flightradar24

You can see all the destinations that are served by an airport on Flightradar24 since 2017. On every airport’s webpage, there is a tab labeled Routes, which shows you a list all the planned non-stop flights of the next seven days, as well as a map:

On that map, you can click on the destinations and will then get a list of the exact flight numbers, departure times, and weekdays of all the flights to that destination (even the airplane type is shown):

You can also get a table with all the flights to all destinations:

The only downside: There currently isn’t a way to get past or future connections. This only works for the next seven days. Also, you cannot filter the results, e.g. for a specific airline. Maybe Flightradar will add such features at some point.

FlightConnections.com

Not as detailed, but similar to Flightradar24, FlightConnections.com has a map with all the destinations:

FlightConnections.com, however, does not state where they get their data, and if it is actually up to date.

OpenFlights.org

OpenFlights.org is similar to FlightDiary or my.Flightradar, meaning that it is actually meant for users to save their personal flight history. This gives them a big database with many details on the flight routes.

Directly on their homepage, you’ll be shown a map with the flights that were recently added. On the bottom right there’s a search field where you can enter a city, airport, or airline:

Openflights.org Airport Routes CGN

The database, however, does not seem to be up to date. You will quickly find that many current flights are missing. Also, e.g. they still show flights from airlines that no longer exist, such as Air Berlin.

You can also see a table with all routes:

OpenFlights.org does not show the exact flight times or numbers but does show the airline, distance, time, and airplane type. You can also filter the results by airline:

You can even download the entire database. It is available under the Open Database License, which also allows using and modifying the data. The database, however, has not been updated since 2014.

Wikipedia

Especially the English Wikipedia version tends to have a list of all the destinations that airports serve (e.g. for Paris CDG). Often they even show future routes:

Conclusion

After OpenFlights has become hopelessly out of date, Flightradar24 has become a great alternative. The only thing missing on Flightradar24 is a way to filter by airline. Who knows, maybe it will be added inn the future.
