Traffic at the world’s 20 busiest air passenger hubs grew 4.7% in 2016. With over 1.4 billion passengers passing through their airports in 2016, this group of 20 represents 18% of global passenger traffic. Download the preliminary passenger traffic results for the top 20 busiest airports here.

Selected highlights:

  • Atlanta-Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL) retained the top spot as the world’s busiest airport, boasting over 104 million passengers, 2.6% more than 2015.
  • Beijing (PEK) held onto the second spot.
  • Dubai (DXB) again secured the third position.
  • Los Angeles (LAX), one of the fastest growing hubs, climbed to fourth place.
  • Seoul Incheon (ICN), experienced double digit growth of 17.1% year-over-year in passenger traffic.
  • Shanghai Pudong (PVG) posted a growth rate of 9.8% and climbed to ninth place.

Based on reports from 1,179 airports worldwide, ACI’s preliminary passenger traffic results for the most-traveled airports in 2016 reveal that the world’s top spot continued to belong to Atlanta-Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL). Boasting over 104 million passengers and growing 2.6% in 2016, the airport is within a two-hour flight of 80% of the United States’ population. Many pundits anticipated that ATL would be overtaken by Beijing (PEK) by 2015, which held the world’s second spot last year. Growing 5% to over 94 million passengers in 2016, China’s busiest airport saw subdued growth in previous years as it faced continuing capacity constraints. Conversely, ATL experienced above average growth levels spurred by aircraft fleet expansions in 2015 by Delta Air Lines, its major operator.

Dubai (DXB), remained in third position. As a major connection point for long-haul international flights, the airport is also the world’s busiest in terms of international passengers ahead of London-Heathrow (LHR). Total passenger traffic at DXB grew 7.2% in 2016.
