I guess the information from ACI has an error concerning south amercian airports.

Last year, the airliner world magazine from england showed the ACI world airport ranking of 2005, and there we can see that São Paulo had two airports among the top 100: São Paulo/Congonhas domestic airport, which handled 17,198,755 passengers in that year, and São Paulo/Guarulhos international airport, which handled 16,855,026 in the same year of 2005. Both airports of São Paulo were ranked two of the fastest growing airports in the world. In fact, São Paulo/Congonhas showed an increase of 26,0 % on that year, making it the fast gorwing airport in the top 100, while São Paulo/Guarulhos showed an increase of 21,5 % in 2005, making it the fourth fastest growing airport in 2005.

So, it´s weird to realize that São Paulo/Guarulhos, with a passenger figure of almost 17 million in 2005 - which made it number 73 in the ranking - didn´t appear in the ranking of the top 100 airpots the following year.

By the way, according to Infraero (brazilian public company that manages the airports of São Paulo - www.infraero.gov.br), São Paulo/Guarulhos airport handled 15,759,161 in the year of 2006, a figure that would put São Paulo/Guarulhos as the airport number 85 in the ranking.

So, I don´t know why São Paulo/Guarulhos didn´t appear in the ranking, but the fact is that São Paulo and South America has two, not just one, of the top 100 airports of the world (though this is still too little for a so populous region).

I also noticed that Guarulhos wasn't in the ranking. I'll get its official ACI stats and edit the original post to include it. No doubt it's an error.

Added São Paulo/Guarulhos in 83th position which was initially erroneously excluded.

Beijing might will be no.1, but remember they are planning a second intl airport, which should brake the growth of the main one drastically. They are even discussing the construction of a third airport before they have started the second! On the other hand, Beijing is growing so fast that it will catch up with Atlanta before the new airprot is open for sure.

Beijing gains 6-7 million passengers a year, nobody beats this.

2004: 34.88
2005: 41.00 (+6.2)
2006: 48.65 (+7.6)

May 2006*: 44.55
May 2007*: 51.52 (+7)

*: y/y

Also, both Shanghai Pudong and Guangzhou Baiyun should climb to the top 30 within 2010.

Don't forget the fact that Madrid is now also a hub for many huge low-fare airlines like Ryan Air, Easy Jet and Vueling which is quite rare for a major airport.

GregPz: As you have added Sao Paolo and kept Hamburg as #101, could you, perhaps, add the next 9 busiest airports? #101-#110 might be interesting. We could see what airports might join the top 100 in the next few years. Perhaps an insert of one line to separate the main group from the next 10 for purposes of comparison and clarity.

Berlin-Tegel might be in the top 110, close behind Hamburg (which may change as you can see below).

Passenger stats from 2006 of the main german airports which didn't make it into the top 101:
Berlin-Tegel: 11.787.960
Stuttgart: 10.045.694
Cologne-Bonn: 9.821.171
Berlin-Schönefeld: 6.026.228
Hanover: 5.645.462
(I spare you the remaining airports)

passenger stats Jan-July 2007 and growth rate of the main german airports
Frankfurt/Main: 30.720.317 (2,6%)
Munich: 19.176.320 (10,8%)
Düsseldorf: 10.009.923 (7,1%)
Berlin-Tegel: 7.265.138 (9%)
Hamburg: 7.091.823 (4%)
Cologne-Bonn: 5.890.662 (5,7%)
Stuttgart: 5.771.132 (0,8%)
Berlin-Schönefeld: 3.616.300 (8,2%)
Hanover: 3.136.598 (-1,7%)
(also here I spare you the rest)

Stats to be found here.

Two huge trends

Two big trends - growth in China and bankruptcy of US carriers dropping rates in US. DL bankruptcy and large downsizing of CVG led to that airport's precipitous drop.

Wonder if strong growth at NRT is result of that airport serving as a connection gateway to China and the rest of Asia.

I think they forgot Cancun International Airport, which handles 13,000,000 passengers per year. It should be between Malaga and Moscow...

Cancún International Airport CUN - 12,900,000 passengers.

Cancun had 9.8m pax for 2006 so it doesn't make the top 100. Maybe next year.

Thanks!!!

Can anyone shed light on the massive 28% passenger drop at #85 Cincinnati? Another eye-opener is the truly amazing volume of passengers that American airports handle. Even relatively small cities like Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Minneapolis, and Orlando handle more traffic than places like Toronto, Sydney, or Seoul!

What about Montreal's airport. Why are volumes so small. Even though it isn't a hub, you'd think population alone would suggest a passenger volume double what it is or around 20-25 million passengers.

I'm not quite sure what you mean here. Are you saying that American carriers would score unfairly high on a ranking by total passenger numbers? If so then yes they would. Low cost airlines like Ryanair, EasyJet, Southwest would also be flattered by the total measure because of their large volumes of short-haul flights. On the other hand airlines like Cathay, Singapore, and Virgin Atlantic are flattered by RPK as they have a high percentage of longhaul flights (in Virgin's case 100%). But, no matter what measure you use, Lufthansa is a much bigger airline than the likes of Cathay, Singapore, or Thai. That's why I was baffled by M.Schwerdtner's post.
