I've been trying to find a tool that could give me a list or map of all the destinations of a certain airline.

Something like this easyjet's route map, but for all airlines.

    @fkraiem: Many airlines are, for some reason, very circumspect about where they fly and how often. All you can do on many airline websites is to search for connections between points that you already suspect they have routes to, but publishing an actual route map (or, God forbid, a full timetable!) definitely seems to have fallen out of fashion. – Henning Makholm Jun 26 '16 at 15:45

    (And yes, I would in fact like to know what's the matter with the people who run those airlines). – Henning Makholm Jun 26 '16 at 15:46

    @HenningMakholm when the website is maintained by a third party (outsourced), airline's tend to cancel pages that do not change dynamically and need an actual person to update (eg. data that do not come from an active system, such as Amadeus).. – Nean Der Thal Jun 26 '16 at 19:31

    Not a real answer, rather an additional chance if nothing else helps: Fly with the airline in question. In their on-board magazines, most airlines have a route map somewhere to "show off" to potential regular customers where you can fly with them. – O. R. Mapper Jun 26 '16 at 22:20

The interface is a bit inconvenient and it has a limit on the number of routes shown simultaneously, but you can do it on Kayak's list of airlines. Click on an airline and you'll get a map of where it flies. E.g. a map for Easyjet:

You can then filter by a specific city to get a map of which routes are available there, e.g. for Easyjet in Prague:

In addition it's possible to show all direct flights from a given city, but without an airline filter through their Routes page:

    This one is definitely missing quite a few routes EasyJet has to Eastern-Europe – SztupY Jun 27 '16 at 11:52

    I made the same discovery as @SztupY, in the first overview map, at least one connection seems missing. When specifying the destination airport that one would turn up. See e.g. in the example above, there is only one connection to Prague in the first image while there are actually plenty in the second one. I guess there is some sorting algo of most popular routes involved. – mts Jun 27 '16 at 11:57
  • @SztupY post updated to reflect this. – JonathanReez Jun 27 '16 at 11:59
  • For BA it doesn't show SIN-SYD, BAH-DOH or any flights to the Carribbean. Is it really a limit on the number of routes shown or something else? – Berwyn Jun 27 '16 at 13:35
  • @Berwyn I think it shows the top-20 routes – JonathanReez Jun 27 '16 at 13:35

Between the Star Alliance route map, the oneworld route map, and the SkyTeam route map, you can see the vast majority of existing flights. For any given airline, just choose the map corresponding to its alliance. And since most itineraries will have all segments within the same alliance, you probably will need to use only one of these maps.

    Worth pointing out that this only works for airlines that do belong to an alliance, i.e. not for e.g. Ryanair or Easyjet. – mts Jun 27 '16 at 10:50
  • @mts I wouldn't be caught dead on one of their planes, unless it fell out of the sky on top of me. Maybe that's why I didn't think of them. – Michael Hampton Aug 5 '16 at 5:48

You could try openflights. I'm not sure if the data is complete, but a map for easyjet:

And Indigo (India LCC):

    OpenFlights is outdated, as it shows flights which no longer exist (e.g. PRG-TAS). – JonathanReez Jun 26 '16 at 19:44

How about the conveniently named http://www.airlineroutemaps.com/, which has an impressive list of over 800 airlines.

  • Interesting. I can't see LHR-SJC on BA though. – Berwyn Jul 7 '16 at 18:23
  • I was about to post this as an answer just to find you already had. +1 then. Maybe worth noting their alleged sources: "Airline route maps presented in this site were mainly gathered from airline websites [...]" – mts Sep 7 '16 at 16:01

I have found Wikipedia a particularly useful resource in this. They usually have a page for say Easyjet destinations and also the pages for airports list where airlines fly from there. It being Wikipedia is not updated automatically but then again, it's Wikipedia so it's reliable... enough.

  • That's better than I expected. It has the LHR-SJC route which started a month or two ago on BA – Berwyn Jul 8 '16 at 4:27
  • Actually, as @mts points out, it doesn't have the route, just the destination – Berwyn Jul 8 '16 at 8:57
