European airport figures 2015

ACI Europe has published its preliminary airport figures for 2015 which again has Heathrow as the region's busiest airport but also shows most of the continental airports slightly catching up.

What the passenger numbers show very clearly is that London as a conurbation is far ahead of any other European city, around 140m passengers passing through its six scheduled service airports last year, and is also, with Heathrow and Gatwick, the only city to have two airports in the top ten.

Annual passengers in 2015 (growth)    

  Heathrow  75.0m  2.2%
  Paris Charles de Gaulle  66.0m  3.1%
  Istanbul Atatürk 61.8m  9.1%
  Frankfurt  61.0m  2.5%
  Amsterdam Schiphol  58.3m  6.0%
  Madrid–Barajas  46.8m  12.0%
  Munich  41.0m  3.2%
  Rome Fiumicino  40.4m  5.0%
  Gatwick  40.0m  5.7%
  Barcelona–El Prat 39.7m  5.7%

What they show more importantly is that 'full to bursting' airports can continue to grow, every year. There are at least three here.
