This chart shows world traffic development in passenger service since 2000. It’s almost impossible to gain data from all airports since year 2000, so for example year 2001 consists of 349 airport of which i was able to collect data, year 2002 consists of 362 airports ect.

In year 2000-2002 are mostly included american airport, british, spanish, italian, german and french airports, also south korean, indian and australian airports. In year 2003 i added several brazilian and thailandian airports. Yeah 2004 brought malaysian airports. In 2006 i added mexican airports and japanese airports. Year 2007 shows adition of east chinese airports, 2009 then taiwan airports. In year 2008 i added turkish airports. Latest adition are mostly smaller airports such as cambodian, indonesian, philliphenian, carribean, african and east european airports.

We can notice that airports before 2004 are mostly european and american, and those airports are recently in recession, they are dragging world traffic down. On the other hand newly added airports, especially from asia or middle east are booming and making passenger growth.

Is there a thread around here dedicated to Airshows? There was a small airshow in my hometown today and I wanted to share some pictures with you.

The World, Traced by Airport Runways



NOW this is a map with a difference. Lacking the usual borders, terrain outlines or country names of standard maps, it's instead comprised of a series of dots. These dots pinpoint the locations of the world's 45,132 runways, airports and helicopter pads, painting an interesting picture.

Created by James Davenport, a PhD candidate in astronomy at the University of Washington, it shows just how many airports are situated in affluent countries such as the US, while most of the rest of the world seems to fade away.

That's not surprising. Typical China's style, boosting no. 1 hardware (infrastructure), yet crappy software (management).

Those two airports are not good. Avoid them if you have alternatives.


The followings are extracted from BBC News:

China's major airports have the worst flight delays in the world, a report from travel industry monitor FlightStats says.

According to figures from around the world in June, Beijing and Shanghai airports came bottom for on-time flights, the US-based firm said.

Eight of the 10 worst-performing Asian airlines in terms of delays were Chinese carriers, the report added.

Among 35 major international airports, the report ranked Beijing Capital International Airport lowest for on-time performance. It figure for on-time departures was 18.30%, with 42.02% of flights falling under the "excessive" category - a delay of 45 minutes or more. This means that only a fifth of the flights left on time and close to half of flights were delayed for 45 minutes or more.

The Shanghai Pudong International Airport, second from bottom, fared slightly better, with on-time flight departures at 28.72%. Under the "excessive" category, it scored 34.22%.

Meanwhile, China United Airlines was ranked the worst-performing among the 41 Asian airlines listed on the report, with just over a quarter of its flight performing on time.

The Asian airline with the best on-time rate was South Korea's Air Busan, with a near-perfect 96.77%.

There are no alternatives to Beijing or Shanghai. I tend to be quite picky with my flights to either city. I make sure I get out by mid-afternoon from Beijing.

I was talking about the case if you are considering transit via Beijing or Shanghai, give a second thought.

The Chinese Airlines and the ATC together makes these two airport lousy hubs.

O'Hare gains on Atlanta airport in 'world's busiest' race
Tribune exclusive


Jon Hilkevitch Tribune reporter
2:35 p.m. CDT, July 16, 2013


An increase in flights this year has helped O’Hare International Airport narrow the gap with arch-rival Atlanta for the title “world’s busiest airport,’’ and air-traffic controllers in Chicago predict O’Hare will soon retake the top spot with help from a new runway opening this fall.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport wrestled the top honor away from O’Hare in 2005 and has retained it ever since, according to the official flight count by the Federal Aviation Administration.........

In the first six months of 2013, Atlanta handled 453,800 takeoffs and landings, while O’Hare accommodated 426,800 flights, a preliminary FAA tally shows.

Atlanta has also topped O'Hare in the number of passengers served annually in recent years. A preliminary passenger count for the first half of 2013 is not yet available.

Despite the 27,000-flight cushion for Atlanta so far this year, an increasing volume of flights at O’Hare over the last two months is trending to make it a horse race.

In May and June, Atlanta had a total of 157,000 flights to O’Hare’s 154,200, for a difference of only 2,800 flights over the two months.

For the full 2012, a total of 930,098 flights operated at Atlanta, versus 878,108 at O’Hare, FAA statistics show...........

yes I had one experience where I transited from Beijing to US. The first flight arrived late so it ended up they used a special car to ship us directly to the next gate.

If you travel inside mainland China you can choose HSR. HSR is my first choice whenever available. They are cheaper, convenient and never delaying.
