London Heathrow has to be in contention.

In 2004, It handled 67million passengers.

Terminal 5 will handle 30million passengers per year.

So now we have 97million.

Virgin Atlantic uses Heathrow as a hub, and has purchased several A380s. This will boost Heathrow's passenger numbers further.

Finally, many airlines now using Heathrow will use A380s (the 1st commercial A380 flight will be from Singapore to London)

So with all of this, Heathrow could be first to break the 100million mark!

400 Million Passengers Book Flights Online

About 400M People Now Book Flights Online
12 December 2005

GENEVA (AP) - About 400 million passengers around the world are now booking their flights over the Internet each year, a decade after the technology was first inaugurated, a technology firm owned by airlines said Monday.

The airline industry is now saving an estimated $1.2 billion a year by not having to pay flight reservation fees for the tickets sold online, said SITA Information Networking Computing.

The company said British Midland Airways, now known as bmi, started using its first online booking engine in December 1995. The system allowed passengers to search for low fares across a date range, book two-for-one companion fares and pay online.

But usage was limited because only 16 million people had any experience of using the Internet at the time.

"The first booking was made by a passenger traveling from Paris to London," a company statement said, but it didn't identify the individual.

SITA noted that the technology had extended beyond airlines. Among non-airline users is Amtrak, the U.S. passenger train service, "which recorded a new Internet booking record in the run-up to Thanksgiving," it said.

Amtrak receive 17,269 bookings on Nov. 21, the first time in the history of Amtrak.com that daily bookings exceeded the 17,000 mark.

Athens Figures are somewhat dissappointing. But thats probarbly because lots of people now use the Islands airports as they cater for International Airtraffic also.

Manila's figures are disappointing, too. But it's good to know we beat Osaka. BTW, is it Osaka's Kansai or is it some other airport?

Yes it is Kansai. Note Osaka ITM handles far more passengers though.

Not bad for Jakarta, that airport can have 30 million pax by 2-3 years from now considering the aviation booming in the country and its considered as the main hub of 230 million Indonesian people.

cheers
