The World’s busiest airport

Atlantic Hartsfield tops the charts as it battles with Chicago O’Hare.

OAG has published its monthly predicted figures for October in both terms of aircraft seat capacity and plane movements.

Hartsfield continues to top the charts followed by O’Hare and Dallas Fort Worth.  Guangzhou is next.

When it comes to actual routes the demographics of China put Shanghai into the lead with its domestic services.

Heathrow is the only airport to feature twice in the top ten when it comes to long-haul international routes.

Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) position as the world's busiest international Airport, announced last month, was short-lived as Dubai (DXB) reclaimed the top spot for October.  Capacity throughout the Middle East hub has returned.

The Dutch airport moves into second place and Europe’s other big hubs are also catching up, with Frankfurt (FRA) now 3rd and Heathrow (LHR) 4th.
