2022Most Turbulent Flight Routes

How the rankings are made
  • The rankings are generated using turbli's historical database icon open window of turbulence.
  • A total of 150,000 routes have been analyzed, from which only those with active airline routes as of December 2022 have been ranked.
  • For each flight, the turbulence is computed over a geodesic and at it's average cruising altitude.
  • Turbulence is given in eddy dissipation rate (edr). The turbulence levels are light (0-20), moderate (20-40), severe (40-80) and extreme (80-100).
