London has retained its position as a key city in airline routes, according to a new report from Amadeus. The company’s latest ‘Amadeus Total Demand by airconomy’ report has shown that London-Tel Aviv, Dubai-London and Paris-Cairo are top examples of city pairs. Traffic between the Middle East and Europe in particular has increased 10.7% (Q1 2009 vs Q1 2010 and 2011) and demand between Europe and Asia Pacific has also risen 4.8%. Again London was named as the busiest travel point, with links to Bangkok, Delhi and Hong Kong in the top city pairings. Meanwhile, the Europe to North America market has remained flat and the emerging BRIC markets continue to see double digit growth.
