How can I get the list of commercial flights between 2 countries over the past x days?

Note to close voters: the question is different from Historical flight data outside of the USA?: as mentioned in the question and in a previous comment, I'm looking for a way to search by country.

The question triggered by this comment from JonathanReez:

But does the Japanese government actually intend for people to travel from Tanzania or are they merely omitted because there aren't any direct flights? – JonathanReez♦ ↵ 6 mins ago

    For past flights, you probably want Flight Radar or something like that - future flights are easier, as you can track them via ITA Matrix (matrix.itasoftware.com/… - no direct flights)

  • @Moo Thanks, do any of these support searching for a country instead of airport code? Commented Aug 4, 2020 at 0:26
  • Google Flights kinda does, but not really.

  • @Moo also many future flights end up being canceled nowadays :/ so preference for what actually happened in the past. Commented Aug 4, 2020 at 0:32
  • Yeah, you aren't going to get a good source on that unfortunately, since there doesn't seem to be a good curated public source of data for this - airlines aren't required to report it to one single body so stats stay internal (there may be reporting to individual aviation bodies for countries, but I cant find anything about reporting to the IATA, UN etc).
