Large metro areas with little "fly over" traffic?

Wed May 10, 2017 4:53 am

Which large metropolitan areas have little to no "fly over" traffic (at cruising altitude)? Perhaps cities such as SCL or EZE that dominate their respective regions (eliminating "fly over" traffic) while being nearly devoid of possible inter-continental "fly over" routes? Or, perhaps metropolitan areas such as TLV for political reasons?

I would say that Honolulu would be another one.

Many Southern Hemisphere cities have ZERO flyover traffic. SCL and EZE like you mentioned, JNB and CPT, PER, MEL, AKL (only SYD-SCL overfly it. )

This is more a function of Geography. Not nearly as many people globally live south of the equator, and there isn't nearly as much land mass for overflights between what few major cities there are in the south. Cold Bay Alaska, for example, is at a similar northern latitude as southern Punta Arenas, but zero flights overfly PUQ where hundreds use CDB as a TPAC alternate.

On the other hand, which cities in the Southern Hemisphere would have the most flyover traffic? Perhaps Yogyakarta (JOG)?

DRW gets pretty much all of the Asia-SYD/MEL/BNE flights. ASP gets some of the cross country flights.

I would say Surabaya over Yogyakarta, but definitely agree that it is probably somewhere in Indonesia

I am not sure how much there really is, but in Miami you don't often see a ton of contrails like you would in say DFW, ORD or ATL. There is certainly some, like flights from ATL or DFW and IAH going to the Caribbean or South America, but not much. Most of the flights in the Caribbean or South America that come towards Miami end up landing in Miami.
