That's some rather irrelevant statistics.
That's irrelevant for you, but so much relevant for other people, as me for example.

Istanbul is not a European city. It's an Islamic city of the Middle East. If anything, Tel Aviv would have more ground to be included among European cities.
Istanbul is much more in Europe than any Israeli city. Moreover, Istanbul will be much more european than Tel Aviv for as long as the movements of tectonic plates want.
I am really wondering if you would consider Tirana not to be more european than Tel Aviv :nuts:.

As for Amsterdam, it has only 1 airport, whereas Paris has 3 airports, so this comparison makes little sense. Traffic at the Paris airports is vastly larger than at Amsterdam's single airport. In 2017 there were 105,232,285 passengers at the Paris airports, vs only 68,515,425 at Amsterdam airport. The two cities are really not in the same league.
You are fully free to compare cities as much as other people are fully free to compare airports. Your comparison Paris-Amsterdam is not more valuable than the comparison CDG-AMS.
However, I would add that this thread is about Airport Statistics, so maybe second comparison match better here. :lol:

Spanish statistics datas of May has been published this morning for all the AENA airports in Spain (this means all the important spanish airports and most of the non importants):

http://www.aena.es/csee/ccurl/53/65/05.Estadisticas_Mayo_2018.pdf
Try this link if the previous one doesn't work:
http://www.aena.es/csee/Satellite?pagename=Estadisticas/Home

As always, first page is monthly data, and second page is 2018 data. On each page, first column shows pax, second column shows operations and third column shows goods carried in tons.

All big or medium airports show increasement of passengers, except TFS (Tenerife Sur) and MAH (Menorca).

MAD and BCN continue growing, MAD has been growing in a fast way for an airport of its size (7% in January, 9% in February, 9% in March, 7% in April, 9% in May):

ADOLFO SUÁREZ MADRID-BARAJAS (MAD) 4,959,964 (+9.6%).
BARCELONA-EL PRAT (BCN) 4,549,769 (+5.2%).

Looking at the tendency, MAD probably will break its record of a single month in this june, if carries more than 5,087,909 passengers in this single month.

SVQ (Sevilla) and TFN (Tenerife-Norte) are one more time the spanish airports with higher increasement (both of them around 20%).

^^ I spent one vacation seeking beach in Cornwall, thinking about the kind of pictures that you have posted. They're never going to see me again in there. Those only look pretty when it's sunny and warm, and that's very rare. Most of the times it's either cloudy and cold, or windy and cold. Let's face it, weather-wise England sucks so there's no substitute for Barcelona unless you could book your holidays one day in advance and check the forecast then.

The weather can be pot luck, not many people will book a week holiday in Wales or Cornwall if they are looking to just sit in the sun for the whole time but that's not the only reason people go on holiday. The place posted is centre for sailing and surfing, people like to go for coastal walks where you don't really want it too hot etc etc

If they are looking only for sitting in the sun then they often indeed will go for the day or the weekend when they see that the forecast is good a couple of days beforehand.

It may take a few years but I wouldn't be surprised if IST becomes the busiest airport in Europe. 2020?
I think the new IST will not be fully operational until some time in 2019 but when they are they will carry on where they left off passenger wise in 2018 and then:

1. Turkish can lay on extra flights as their main hub now decongests.
2. Some flights currently serviced in Sabiha Gockcen on the Asian side will move over (it is rammed with passengers too).
3. A combination of 1 and 2 will deliver a bounce in 2019 but not really before April and the summer schedules.

So my predictions are:

1. IST will not surpass CDG and AMS in 2018 and will likely remain 4th in Europe by a netch, it may surpass CDG though.
2. IST shoots past them in 2019 and grows to 74/75m pax and the clear number 2 spot in Europe.
3. IST will breathe down Heathrows neck in 2020 but I do not expect it to be number 1 until 2021. The bounce in traffic I expect in 2019 will not be repeated in 2020 or 2021.

all the above assumes that some maniac with a beard and a deathwish does not do something awful in Istanbul however. :(

Great stuff Bubbalo, I see IST is now up to 2nd in Europe on the YTD measure (Jan-April only) but I think they will end up behind AMS by the end of August and perhaps behind CDG later in the year.

They'll end up behind a lot of other airports as well because at the end of this year they'll be closed for most traffic.

I don't think the planned closure will happen until 2019 when the 48 hour transfer from old IST to shiny new and massive IST will happen. But it is only 48 hours of disruption for Turkish. They will, in the end, have 2 ISTs on the go for a few months of 'testing' I suspect. :)
