Why is no one here citing sources for their figures?

Wow, I knew that London was the largest overall, but I didn't think it had that far of a lead.

I wonder how much higher it will be when they finish Terminal 5 in Heathrow.

Don't think the rankings will move that much if all the regional airports are included for each city. We get a rough idea over how much traffic exists at the top airports. I think that's the best message coming out of all these statistics.

Unless the airlines starts to fly with larger aircrafts you won´t see any significant change, there are only that many slots and at heathrow they´re all occupied. What Heathrow needs is more runways.

London includes five principal airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and City Airports. Heathrow may be at capacity, but the others are still expanding.

Stansted is seeing much opposition over expansion. Not sure what the situation in Gatwick is, but I think Luton might be the easiest one to expand significantly.

If a city is big, you must scatter airports.

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.

It has been, but those days are coming to a close. A city like Montreal should have a first rate airport, and they seem to be taking many positive steps to emerge from 30 years of disarray. The only thing that is 'always' is death and taxes. To say that YUL will always be an embarassment doesn't lend one much confidence in your reasoning. I'm not sure how you can make a prediction like that.

Maybe that growth rate for Tokyo-Narita, in that list, is wrong. Other sources, that I've read, mentions that it only grew an anemic 1.1%. Maybe GregPz mistyped the figures for Tokyo-Narita?!

I made no conclusions with YUL, however it IS an embarrassment and has been for some time.

While the new US concourse and add on to the domestic concourse are nice add ons, they are cramped, poorly layed out and try getting your bags on a domestic AC flight and catching a cab at a somewhat busy time. Or even worse, try crossing to the parking lot without getting run over...

I dont know what to say Jakarta airport got 30 millions of passenger passing by annually


Guys, gotta tell u the truth,,, the airport was OVER-TRAFFIC that which capacitity supposed to be. Yeah, Jakarta airport working 60-70% harder than its actual capacity ...

The airport only got 2 runways and two terminals, with very simple highway which interconnects the city to the airport .. The govt should think to expand the airport .... Jakarta Airport deserves 3rd terminal

This isn't a conclusion? Regardless, I do agree with you that YUL has been an embarassment for a long time.

Actually, South America has TWO airports in the Top 100, both in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil:

67 Sao Paulo CGH 18,542,803 ... 7.4
83 Sao Paulo GRU 16,580,842 ... -1.6

3 airports - not just 2 - are in Latin America.
São Paulo has 2 airports in the list (Congonhas - CGH and Guarulhos Intl. - GRU), in positions 67 and 83, which, along with Mexico City airport, results in 3 airports for the region.

But I agree, 3 airports for latin america - given its population - is still a low figure.

It´d would be different for Latin America in the ranking if the airport traffic in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro were concentrated in one airport in each city, because each of these important cities have its traffic divided in two airports (Buenos Aires have Ezeiza Intl. and Aeroparque for domestic flights, while Rio has Tom Jobim Intl. - also known as Galeão - and Santos Dumont for services to São Paulo and other shorts flights.).

As the total traffic in both cities exceed 12 million, they would appear in the top 100 ranking if they have only one airport for regular flights.

Indeed very interesting. Australia has as many many airports in the top 100 as the whole of Latin America.

You have to consider the purchase power of Latin-american population. It is not that big when compared to the First World's. A big population is not the only thing that matters.

If you put all that passengers in only one airport (like in Mexico City), Sao Paulo would have 35 million passengers/year. Brasilia (Brazil's capital) has only one airport and will have a number like 12 million passengers this year. The same thing with GIG, in Rio (GIG would have almost 16 million plus the passengers from SDU).

Yes, Brasília is close to enter the top 100 ranking.
