Only 1 airport from South America? That's a bit of a suprise given the population.

yes friend, that's true.
also i wonder why emirates is so low down the line, as well as etihad and some other gulf carriers. from the rave reviews, it seemed qatar, etihad and emirates will be pretty high up on the list.

The pax figures for BNE for the '06-'07 financial year: 17,592,548 (+8.59%) I'm guessing JNB would be just ahead still? It may have taken over YVR & SAN though?

JNB is fast heading towards 19 million...Sept'06 to Aug '07 = 18 686 903 (14% up on the previous corresponding period). Month-on-month growth is above 15% for the last few months also, so growth is still picking up...plus several additional flights and new routes still coming up in the next few months again.

Here in the map you can see how Africa and Southern America got just one airport in top 100

I see Kenya Airways has entered the top 100 for the first time. What a fantastic story of an airline that has gained the respect of many in the airline industry and continues to make fantastic profits when others are struggling.

Cairo should make the top 100 next year. It just didn't make the 2006 list and is currently experiencing rapid growth.

With the growth of the airport here in Brisbane, we will just keep climbing in growth. Its nice to see three Australian cities on this list, maybe in the coming years you can add four to the list from Australia. Perth's airport is growing at a good rate as well.

Conspicuous absence is Montreal's Trudeau Airport (formerly Dorval). At one time, Canada's busiest airport and a major transatlantic hub for commercial aviation, the Mirabel fiasco and economic decline really took their toll on passenger volume in Montreal. With Mirabel closed (formerly the largest airport in the world), and Montreal prospering again, Trudeau Airport should join the top 100 again. Passenger volumes in 2006 was 11,434,070. Major upgrades to facilities, expansions to handle 28 million passengers, and possibly a dedicated rail link to downtown will only help Trudeau Airport prosper. Mid-November will see the arrival of one of Air France's Airbus A380 planes. The other will fly to New York City.

I'd be surprised not to see both Montreal and Calgary join the top 100 in the near future. Toronto should more than hold its own, while Vancouver will probably get a big spike from the 2010 Olympics that may last well beyond that. Time will tell.

@ bonivision

At the rate that it's growing, it'll be the first airport to reach 100 million pax.

I'd like that. That way, Beijing-Capital International Airport will need to build another uber-sized terminal.

Currently O'Hare can handle 2,700 operations per day. That's an average of 78.2 passengers per operation per day. When the expansion is done (currently U/C), O'Hare will be able to handle 3,800 operations per day. If the average stays the same, the PAX would be 108,409,966. + The potential for the Olympics would also give it a boost. So who knows. Just throwing it out there.

In 10 years I would not be surprised to see the top 10 dominated by Chinese cities, with Mumbai and New Delhi in there as well. I would also expect Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, and Kolkata to get into the top 100. We will see a shift from North America methinks...Europe should hold its own, since many expats people fly thru Europe
