The only 2 real surprises are Jakarta and Buenos Aires. The first one has an absolutely staggering growth rate despite being already way over its limit, Buenos Aires on the other hand seems to see very little air traffic for a city its size (even if you combine EZE and AEP) and especially when you also consider the vast distances in Argentina.

@Kolony, do you have any links on the stats you've posted on here? Also providing yearly growth rates would be very useful also.

Airports in the United States are gearing up to cater for increasing passenger footfall as the country's economy shows signs of recovery. Check the 10 busiest airports in the US based on total passenger traffic during the first seven months of 2013.

These numbers are a lot less than what I would've assumed. Toronto is a huge city, yet has less passengers than Sydney (36,927,417 passengers). And Montreal has 13 million passengers whereas Melbourne has 29,297,357. Even Vancouver (which I always thought was a bit of a hub airport, for transpacific flights, has less than Brisbane and only a bit more than Perth.

Is that partly because flying inside Canada is so expensive, and a lot of people travel across the US border for flights? There has to be more to these stats than meets the eye.

Yes. The Canadian federal government use airports as their own private bank account rather than engines of economic growth. They're taxed to the hilt making airfares very expensive. I believe airfares in Australia are less than half what we pay for a similar type of trip.

Canadians either drive, go to US airports, take the train, or simply avoid trips altogether. I've always been puzzled at how little Quebeckers fly. Montreal is a relatively poor city and they also tend to be more insular. They just don't travel beyond their home province like other people do. Toronto Pearson really should be up around 60 million PAX considering the population it serves.

For instance, if it were only $80 to fly to New York or Montreal from Toronto (like it should be) I'd do it all the time. Because it's 3-4 times that price, I rarely make the trip. Btw, does Sydney have more than 1 airport? Toronto is really Pearson + Billy Bishop or 37 million PAX. Still very low, but a more accurate number.

Yes, it does. The Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport is the main airport, with a total of 36,927,417 passengers. The second airport, Bankstown Airport, used for private jets and charters, has 247,369 passengers. There is an airfield at Camden with 106,614 passengers. And also there is the RAAF Base Richmond Airfield. In total, there are 37,281,400 passengers using the airports in the Greater Sydney Area.
