This includes inbound and outbound air passengers so it isn't perfect because tourism throws things off. This is from a graph, so it is really hard to read, but according to Airbus the country with the most air travel per capita/year is:
Seychelles at about 8 trips per person
Bahamas about 7
This group between 5 and 7:
Maldives, Barbados, Malta, Cyprus, New Zealand, Macao, UAE, and Ireland.
This group between 3 to 4:
St. Lucia, Bahrain, Spain, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Qatar, USA, UK
This group between 1 to 2:
Fiji, Mauritius, Trinidad, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Greece, Brunei, Italy, Kuwait, Belgium, Finland, Sweden, Denmark
Everything else is below that.
The world average is only about 0.3.
The richest country to have the least travel is between Netherlands, Denmark, and Switzerland.
The poorest country to have the most travel is between Maldives, Seychelles, and Cape Verde.
The country with the least travel in the world (also the poorest according to Airbus) is Niger.
It would be interesting to see only international travel. I bet the USA is much lower on the list. It seems to me that Americans tend to travel internationally less than almost anywhere else, but probably travel domestically more than anybody else.
