World’s Busiest Airports – Top 30 Busy Airports in World

The Airports Council International (ACI), which governs roughly 1,650 airports worldwide, released a preliminary list of the world’s busiest airports (numbers 1 through 30) and there were some surprises. Beijing came in #2 behind Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport; Chicago’s O’Hare airport overtook London’s Heathrow for the third spot. ACI’s World Airport Traffic Report – the most comprehensive source of global airport traffic data available on the market is based on traffic data from over 1350 airports. So, this list of the world’s top 30 busy airports is based on traffic reports submitted by a record number of 1354 airports. This list was last updated on August 5, 2010.
