The World’s Top 10 Busiest Airports Infographic

Infographic highlights the World’s Top 10 Busiest Airports based on total passenger traffic


The World’s Top 10 Busiest Airports Infographic showcases the world’s most active airports based upon the total number of passengers who have enplaned, deplaned, or are in transit at an airport throughout the course of the year. It was developed using data collected from Wikipedia’s “List of busiest airports by passenger traffic” article. This Wikipedia article was produced using information obtained from the “Airports Council International‘s most recent annual Airport Traffic Report, which was published in 2017 and utilizes statistics from 2016—the last full-year of statistical reporting.

The infographic presents the world’s busiest airports, starting with Charles de Gaulle Airport at #10, and progressing all the way down to a resounding #1. It is worth mentioning that the #1 most busiest airport on our chart was frequented by over 9.5 million more visitors than the #2 on our chart. In addition to total passenger traffic, this graphic includes information relating to airport location, country, airport owner/operator, and the airport’s ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) code and IATA (International Air Transport Association) code.

For quick reference, an infographic summary is included below the image.
