Well, you would kind of have to break it down by smaller,medium and large airports. Places like BLV would more than double cause of Allegiant that now flies there.


Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

Percent of traffic

Percentage of passenger traffic or percentage of aircraft movements?

Well MSP will be growing a lot once the new runway opens in October. It is estimated the traffic there will grow 25%. MSP is the largest airport in that world that only operates 2 runways at one time.


Now You're Flying Smart.

Fort Lauderdale is growing at a rapid rate. Among top 50 airports, i'm sure it's the fastest growing.

i saw an arcticle about the fastest growing airports in the country in one of charlestons papers that it was either FLL or Pbi that was the fastest growing in the country. ill try and look it up.

ok boys here we go.. i think ive got the top 4. Im not sure how accurate this is.. its a study from the Boyd group. some of the information is planned future growth but its supposedly based on current groth rates.

http://www.wowktv.com/story.cfm?func=viewstory&storyid=2671 thats

The article is of course about CRW ( a charleston news station) but just go to the bottom to see the cities..
boyd is saying Bangor, Boston, and sarasota ar the fastest growing airports in the u.s.

Also theres this .. also from boyd.

Interestingly enough Massport says that BOS will not grow at the rate the Boyd Group estimates. Boyd estimates that by 2010 BOS will handle roughly 35 million passengers (about 8.5 million more than in 2004). Massport says that will not happen although I think part of the reason why they say that is because they don't want it to. They can barely keep it going at 26 million, I think they're afraid they'll not be able to handle that much. Who's to say!

I know we are on pace this year to have record numbers of pax, which I love to see, I hope we see some new routes/ upgrades on planes on exsiting routes. If anything a new aiport is warranted, but after the Big Dig mess how likely is that to happen in the next 15 years?

ATL will be growing some 5-6% if not even up to 10%, which is huge given that ATL handles over 80 million pax per year and will likely break the 90 million barrier next year, with a small chance that it happen this year already.
Also, Orlando (MCO) has been growing at a good rate, surpassing MIA (for now), in particular thanks to DL/Song/Delta Connection.

Not likely! As has been discussed over-and-over again there's no place within 50 miles for an airport. That and Massport is really putting their eggs in the basket that is Logan. I don't think it's a wise idea but given how organized the NIMBYs are and how political Massachusetts is there's not really much of an option.

Anyway, I think BOS will see about 28,5-29 million this year. Next year will top 30 million if growth continues in the same manner.

JetBlue will certainly help raise those passenger numbers at BOS.
For such a relatively small airport and catchment area (it's not a hub for any airline), BOS never ceases to amaze me with the variety and volume of traffic that it handles. As my home airport, I love it.

In terms of movements MSP is busier than LHR.

Some airports that may have more passengers, not sure of traffic, that have two runways.

LGA
SEA
LHR
CDG


I can't buy that MSP has more movements that LHR. Does someone have a source they can quote this on.


Anyways as far as fastest growing airports, no one has mentioned LAS. This airport continues to get bigger, to the point where they are about to open an extension of the D gates, and they have long range plans to build a new terminal and a new airport as well. MCO also has long range plans to build a new terminal to accomodate its growth, and they just opened a new runway.

DFW on the other hand is a mystery. They have spent money on airport expansions, and the growth seems to be stagnant at best as no one wants to go head to head with thier AAdvisAAry, plus Southwest wants to expand from Love field. I am doing my own study on that, and will share the results with this forum.

Boyd is actually forecasting traffic from 2004 to 2009. In an industry where there are so many variables, these forecasts are often way off.

In an airport management trade group MSY belongs to there is a recent article and table which details 2004 airport passenger/cargo/movements at airports worldwide. However, I can't get it to load. When I can, I'll post what I find out. I'll try some other trade sites, as well.

Knowing recent passenger traffic history, and not having any idea what I'll find, I'm guessing that LAS, FLL, and likely PHX would be among those with the highest percentage passenger traffic growth.

Here at MSY, we were up 4.7% on our passenger traffic from 2004 over 2003.

Apodino,

Figures by the Airport Council Intl. for 2002 show that MSP is ranked 7 and LHR ranked 13 for aircraft movements. fairly certain that current figures would still reflect that ranking.
