Nice quiz. The number for Geneva seems incredibly high. I can hardly imagine Geneva getting more passengers than Frankfurt or Zurich.

Well Geneva is the financial capital of Switzerland so gets a lots of business travellers and is also I think the most popular airport destination for skiing and stuff so gets a lot of passengers.

But yes it is a lot. I think about 15% of all passengers in Geneva fly to London

I was trying to think of a French city there. Even zoomed in you can't see the border properly. Of course, should know the shape of Switzerland and so on.

Remember, Geneva airport is part in France & part in Switzerland - so, in a sense, you shouldn't see the border!

The airport is definitely not in France, but sure, the airport fence is almost on the border!

I think I mispelled Aberdeen. Only missed that one and a couple resort towns on the Iberian coast. I was confused for a while about the dot for London, I thought it was another destination, but couldn't figure out where so many people from London would be flying that was right next to London.

Agree. That dot needs to be colored green or removed altogether.

Got all 50! It helps that I used to run a travel site so I know all the European vacation destinations. And that also explains the name of "JetPunk" - we were originally going to be another travel site.

Didn't realize that Switzerland jutted so far into France. I kept trying French cities for Geneva.

As you may know, Geneva airport is essentially split between the 2 countries. French domestic flights will exit you into France.

I was wondering about that small dot where I suspected London to be. Like why would they fly to such a close airport... Took me way too long to get past that.

This list surprises me a lot. Doha and Tenerife make the cut while Atlanta (busiest airport in the world) and Sao Paulo don't.
reply

Looking at the list, it consists of the major European cities, lots of European holiday resorts for the British (like Tenerife, Majorca, Malaga, Geneva), popular city breaks (like Budapest, Prague, Barcelona, Venice), then major hubs for British travellers to Asia (Doha and Dubai and to a lesser extent Singapore), then major financial centres (Hong Kong, Singapore and New York, Toronto, Chicago).

Altanta is only very popular because its such a domestic hub, so doesn't get as many flights to London. London to New York is the main entrance to the United States, and has like 29 flights a day. And not many people fly between London and South America.

I wouldn't say that about Atlanta. Had to fly through there to get to Guatemala City. Lots of flights to Latin America. Surprised Miami made the cut and Atlanta didn't (although I guess Miami is a transfer point to either cruise ships or flights to Latin America)

Miami is the busiest airport in the United States for International passengers, and gets about double the number passengers from London compared to Atlanta. Not saying Atlanta has no international flights (it is the 5th busiest airport for international passengers in the US) but Miami is bigger.

Awesome quiz! I got to do the London - Boston route first class last summer after I fell in Scotland and tore a tendon in my knee. The airline had to upgrade me because I had a full leg brace on and couldn't bend my knee. It sucked about the leg, but the upgrade was a really nice perk!
