And I doubt that they will ever be in the Top30 again. Asian airports are all growing at double digit rates...some even with 20+% and in the next 2 years we will see many American and European airports drop out of the list.

Expect to see Miami, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Detroit, Newark and London (LGW) no longer on that Top30 list in 2 years and replaced by Shanghai (PVG), Seoul (ICN), Guangzhou, Mumbai, Delhi and Barcelona.

It's highly likely next year Fiumicino will make the top 30, since Alitalia's main hub will be relocated in Rome from Milan. An instant growth of some millions passengers is then expected.

hmm that means YYZ is still growing at million a year...

So expect around 32 million passengers or maybe more due to a major opening of a new Pier...

Agree with most of that, but I'd be surprised if Toronto doesn't return to the top 30. There's simply too much population growth in southern Ontario to keep it out. Metro Toronto is the same size as metro Madrid, and growing quicker. Toronto hasn't attained North American hub status in the same way as some European airports have attained European hub status, but population growth alone should eventually boost PAX numbers substantially.

Some Asian airports will grow faster, but Toronto over the long term will grow much faster than most other cities in Europe and North America. The long term, net effect, should be a gradual shift up the tables, not down.

The growth is going to be in Asia, and that is very evident from the percentages in the rankings. Expect the rankings to change dramatically in the next decade as passenger volumes skyrocket in China especially. Hence, those that have been kicked out of the top 30 are likely going to stay that way unless they can start catching up with >10% growth rates year over year.

So what if it is the main airport connecting Latin America? Miami is not a big hub compared to airports in Asia which will overtake many American and other airports in the top 30 list.

BTW, I like your signature.

The main Latin American hub for Europeans. Someone from Chicago will hardly fly to Madrid first and then onwards to Buenos Aires.

MAD has nothing to do with LatAm?? So why do u think the airport is in the world top 10? because of its many connections with Asia..?

By the way, someone said there was only one south american airport on the list, but there are actually two, both located in Sao Paulo. And I guess it wont change soon, there are no low cost/low fare companies in Brazil, the biggest market, which makes that people preffer the cheaper road trips rather than flying.

That's not true, the main hub of LA is Mexico City, followed by Sao Paulo (Garulhos). Maybe it's for the Caribbean, but when I travel I always take Mexico City as the main hub, and sometimes Dallas, but not Miami.
