Air Travel

Air transport in the United Kingdom is the commercial carriage of passengers, freight and mail by aircraft, both within the United Kingdom (UK) and between the UK and the rest of the world. In the past 25 years the industry has seen continuous growth, and the demand for passenger air travel in particular is forecast to increase from the current level of 236 million passengers to 465 million in 2030. One airport, Heathrow Airport, is amongst the top ten busiest airports in the world. More than half of all passengers travelling by air in the UK currently travel via the six London area airports. Outside London, Manchester Airport is by far the largest and busiest of the remaining airports, acting as a hub for the 20 million or so people who live within a two-hour drive. Regional airports have experienced the most growth in recent years, due to the success of low-cost carrier airlines over the last decade.

n the 2021 Autumn Budget, the Chancellor announced a cut in Air Passenger Duty for domestic flights in the UK. This was welcomed by UK airports as a boost to domestic connectivity, but criticised by environmental groups for sending the wrong message about carbon-intensive flying.

But how many domestic flights do we take in the UK, and where to? This Insight looks at statistics and maps based on data published by the Civil Aviation Authority.

How many people flew?

Three million passengers travelled on scheduled domestic flights in the UK between July and September 2021. The most popular route was between Heathrow and Edinburgh, followed by Heathrow to Glasgow.

The map below shows all routes carrying over 100 passengers over this period, with the most-travelled routes shown in the chart on the left.

The numbers here count passengers in both directions (eg from Belfast to Gatwick as well as Gatwick to Belfast). The routes might not reflect a passenger’s whole journey: for example, a passenger could fly from Edinburgh to Heathrow, then connect at Heathrow to a second flight heading outside the UK, but they would still be counted in the number of people flying from Edinburgh to Heathrow.

There are 182 routes shown on this map, so it’s hard to isolate them all, but simpler versions focusing on particular areas follow below.

The thickness of the lines indicates how many passengers travelled that route between July and September 2021.

Around 37% of passengers on domestic flights in the UK were flying to or from Northern Ireland. 39% were flying from the Scottish mainland to or from elsewhere on mainland Great Britain, while 3% were flying to or from the Scottish Islands. 13% were flying to or from the Channel Islands, and only 6% took a flight that both started and finished in mainland England (excluding the Isles of Scilly).

53% of domestic passengers were flying either to or from a London airport.
