I just noticed the decrease in passenger numbers for IAH. Very strange considering all other major airports are reporting nice growth rates. The low oil prices must really be hurting the economy there.

Hey guys,

finally DEN released Dec statistics so we can have a closer look at the last month of 2016 and the whole year!

This table below mention only top 50 airports based on total number of passengers, some of the other airports may experience higher/lower % and absolute growth in final numbers, but as mentioned there are excluded from those tables.

As for CGK, total amount of year end numbers was posted on this forum earlier with 58.1 million handled passengers, but ACI states for period Dec-15/Nov-16 only 54.7 million passengers. I kept the ACI statistics in my files

DECEMBER
All together 8 airports (SIN, KUL, DEL, BKK, DOM, SYD, SXZ, MEL) created new monthly records. KUL seems getting back on the growth track before the Malaysia airlines incidents, SYD and MEL generally experiences their stronger months in summer (summer on the south hemisphere), BOM and DEL, especially DEL keeps unbelievable pace of growth (mostly domestic growth) in recent months. Almost impossible to believe that 17.2% growth for DEL in December was the lowest in the whole calendar year, second lowest was July with 18.8% growth)

CALENDAR YEAR 2016
Very interesting results were brought by year 2016. Some of the airports surprisingly fell in the ranks, others kept tremendous growth throughout the year.

Probably the biggest surprise was DEL airport with almost 21% growth. There seems to be no stop in the growth and we can probably expect the same in 2017. DEL added extra 9.6 million passengers compare to last year and became that fastest growing airport among top 50.

With little less of a surprise, but still some, ICN grew by 17.2% which was mainly because of traffic rebound from Jul-Sept 2015 MERS outbreak, however the pace of growth is still in double digits numbers for most part of the year. The net growth of passengers was 8.5 million.

DOH, thanks to Qatar Airways continuous expansion, showed 20.5% growth, second highest among top 50 airports. Net addition was 6.7 million.

LAX was the second best (after SEA in case of % growth) performed of the US airports, having 8% growth and net addition of almost 6 million passengers. Also it became 4th airports in the history to handle more than 80 million passengers in calendar year (after ATL, PEK and DXB). The LAX modernization program and development of new international routes brought many new travelers to this Californian air hub.

Chinese airports (PEK, PVG, CAN, CTU, KMG, SZX, SHA) continued with positive steady growth. PEK was the second airport in the world to cross 90 million passengers, KMG, SZX and SHA crossed 40 million passengers mark.

Among European airports, strongest growth was performed by AMS, which became 3rd busiest airport in Europe after LHR and CDG, surpassing IST and FRA. Spanish airports MAD and BCN benefited from shift of passenger traffic from Turkey, Egypt and other Mediterranean countries. In recent months BCN is having higher growth than MAD and in coming years might be number one among airports in Spain.

From the end of the list, IAH was the worst performer with a decrease of 3.3%. As EmiratesAirline380 mentioned, this might have to do something with the structure of business (mostly oil business) and the low prices of oil. Other US airports - CLT and PHX - experienced negative growth as well.

In Europe "losers" were FRA and IST. For IST we know the decrease is caused by political unrest and terrorist attacks.

AIRPORTS by categories
Nine airports jumped from 30 million range to over 40 million range, 4 airports from 40 to 50, one airport from 50 to 60, one airport from 60 to 70, two airports from 70 to 80 and one airport from 80 to 90.

Please let me know if you have more accurate information/explanation, if you want something to be corrected of added or if there are some other points to be raised.

You use inaccurate information about Russian airports. The source that you use(http://www.favt.ru/public/materials/...bfc6c5afac.pdf), was engaged in secondary counting of passengers and has inaccuracies. I would advise using the primary information from airports(https://tolmachevo.ru/mediacenter/news/217993/) - OVB 3 932 368 vs OVB 4 097 490 . And so with each Russian airport. Sorry Google translate/

DELhi growth is incredible. It must be huge logistical challenge there, to cope with ~ 800 000 more passengers every month.

I suppose it's inevitable that Delhi will zoom into the top 5.

LAX came out with their statistics for January 2017: 6,444,489, an increase of 6.19% from January of last year:

http://www.lawa.org/LAXStatistics.aspx
http://www.lawa.org/uploadedfiles/LA.../tcom-0117.pdf

So it looks like LAX started off the year with healthy growth, if it grows at over 6% for the whole year it will end 2017 with +85 million passengers. The big takeaway here, at least for me, is the pace of International growth. Domestic passenger volume increased 3.57%, while International passenger volume increased a whopping 12.55%! International travel is a huge driver of growth at LAX.

And so that brings in the big caveat: this number doesn't really take into account Trump and the consequences of his travel ban. I am REALLY curious to see the Feb. numbers at LAX, and if there is any downturn from 2016. I don't think Trump's isolationist travel policies will cause LAX to dip into negative growth territory, but it will be interesting to see if the net results of political and policy changes in the US causes growth at LAX to fall to sub-5% levels.

How many international passengers did LAX handle in 2016? Wikipedia only lists the top 30 globally.

International passengers seem to be driving Pearson's numbers too with 25,177,558 in 2015. That number jumped to 27,428,638 in 2016, a jump of 8.9%. Domestic traffic grew by 6.6% so the discrepancy between international growth vs domestic isn't as wide as one sees at LAX.

Cool! And thank you for the info on YYZ. Yeah, seems like Pearson has nice healthy growth in both Domestic and International travel, looks like it should hit the 50 million passenger mark this year (or at least get really really close)

Pearson was the world's 16th busiest airport in 1981 but had slipped all the way down to about 38th a few years ago. They're starting to see strong numbers again but it's a long road back 16th.

50 million might be a stretch for 2017 but who knows.

Why such a big drop in Philadelphia? 12% decrease is a lot.

Thank you Seljuk!!! We can now rank all (but Honolulu, and maybe Panama City) of the major North American Airport Systems by passenger numbers.

Using the airport listing here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...senger_traffic, the biggest Airport Systems in North America are:

AIRPORT SYSTEM 2016 pax # (2015 pax #); +- 2015-2016

  10. Houston 54,524,764 (55,186,568); -661,804
  11. Las Vegas 47,435,640 (45,389,074); +2,046,566
  12. Toronto 47,065,198 (43,436,847); +3,628,351

  19. Minneapolis 37,517,957 (36,582,854); +935,103
  20. Detroit 34,401,254 (33,440,112); +961,142
  21. Philadelphia 30,155,090 (31,444,403); -1,289,313
  22. San Diego-Tijuana 27,058,301 (24,935,055); +2,123,246
  23. Salt Lake City 23,157,445 (22,667,878); +489,567
  24. Vancouver 22,288,552 (20,315,978); +1,972,574
  25. Honolulu [Not Available] (19,869,707); N/A

  30. Calgary 15,680,616 (15,475,759); +204,857
Cut-off is 15,000,000 passengers

Changes:
  • Atlanta: -
  • Boston -
  • Calgary: -
  • Cancun: Likely +1 (likely surpassed Honolulu)
  • Charlotte: -4 (was surpassed by Phoenix, Orlando, Seattle and Toronto)
  • Chicago: -1 (was surpassed by Los Angeles)
  • Dallas: -
  • Denver: +1 (surpassed Houston)
  • Detroit: -
  • Honolulu: N/A
  • Houston: -1
  • Las Vegas: -
  • Los Angeles: +1 (surpassed Chicago)
  • Mexico City: -
  • Miami: -
  • Minneapolis: -
  • Montreal: -
  • New York: -
  • Orlando: +1 (surpassed Charlotte)
  • Philadelphia: -
  • Phoenix: +1 (surpassed Charlotte)
  • Portland: -
  • Salt Lake City: -
  • San Diego: -
  • San Francisco: -
  • Seattle: +2 (surpassed Charlotte, Phoenix)
  • Tampa: -
  • Toronto: +1 (surpassed Charlotte)
  • Vancouver: -
  • Washington: -

Fun fact: Every statistical area in North America with over 3,000,000 people has an airport system with over 15,000,000 passengers, but 3: Cleveland, Guadalajara, and Monterrey

Statistical Areas below 3,000,000 people with airport systems above 15,000,000?
  • Calgary
  • Cancun
  • Charlotte
  • Honolulu
  • Las Vegas
  • Salt Lake City

Sorry I didn't get it...

The numbers show that only Las Vegas and Charlotte handle more than 30,000,000 passengers, the others don't.

And I believe Orlando would also join that "team" (has its Statistical Area achieved 3,000,000 already?)
