The world’s busiest commercial airport

The busiest commercial airport in the world is the Hartsfield- Jackson Airport (ATL) in Atlanta,  with more than 970.000 airplane movements a year. Based on its passenger traffic this airport has been the busiest from  1998, and by the number of landings and take-offs – since 2005. The Hartsfield–Jackson has held its ranking as the world’s busiest airport in 2012, too, both in terms of the number of passengers and the number of flights. In the year alone it was visited by 95 million passengers (more than 260,000 passengers daily).
