The Top 110 Airlines on Twitter

We’ve made aviation security and keeping passengers safe in the air and other public venues a top focus. It’s the motivation behind the advanced screening technology we’ve developed that can quickly analyze bottled liquids and electronic devices for explosive materials. Keeping passenger safety and convenience top of mind, our scanners are both highly accurate and fast to keep the security checkpoint moving with minimal delay.

Of course, our friends in the airline industry appreciate our efforts, which is why we’re connected to many of them through social media.

However, when we started building these relationships, we struggled to find a comprehensive, up-to-date list of all major airlines on Twitter. So we built our own, which we’re now happy to share with anyone else interested in following these organizations. You’re welcome!

A few noteworthy facts and statistics about this list:

– The five airlines with the largest Twitter following are all in South Asia.

– Southwest is the only U.S. airline in the top 10 in terms of followers, at #7 overall (though American is #11 and Delta is #12).

– These 110 accounts are owned by a total of 84 airlines (73 with a single account, 11 airlines with multiple Twitter accounts) in 43 countries. Cathay Pacific has the largest number of separate accounts (eight), followed by Lufthansa and Air France, each with four.

– The number of airline accounts on this top Twitter list by country:

Australia – 6 France – 2 Malaysia – 3 Spain – 4
Austria – 1 Germany – 4 Mexico – 1 Sri Lanka – 1
Bahrain – 1 Greece – 2 New Zealand – 1 Sweden – 1
Belgium – 1 Hong Kong – 1 Norway – 1 Switzerland – 1
Brazil – 1 Iceland – 1 Oman – 1 Thailand – 1
Canada – 5 India – 4 Panama –  1 The Netherlands – 2
China – 1 Indonesia – 2 Philippines – 2 Turkey – 2
Columbia – 1 Ireland – 1 Qatar – 1 UAE – 3
Czech Republic – 1 Israel – 1 Singapore – 4 UK – 10
Ethiopia – 1 Italy – 2 South Africa – 4 USA – 22*
Finland – 1 Kenya – 1 South Korea – 1

 

* 11 domestic airlines plus 11 accounts of foreign-based carriers. All Twitter follower counts are as of August 2017.
