Flying Cartography

A billowy, inky graphic visualizes facts about world airline routes and popular destinations. Interesting companion info:

  • Every country in the world, no matter how small or poor, has at least one airline
  • Some of these airlines, particularly in Africa, have only one or two planes, often second or third hand 737s
  • Any country with a plane big enough has a flight to New York City
  • There are more airlines in Europe than anywhere else on earth
