ACI has released their January and February statistics for airport passenger traffic. Now this data is a few weeks old, so my pardon if its already been posted. I did a few searches and found no similar 2008 topic.

(I'll like to Wikipedia):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World'...iest_airports_by_passenger_traffic

Observations:
1. The major traffic drop for ORD dropped it to #3 with HND's slow growth propelling them to grab #2 above LHR too!
2. HKG, DXB, CAN, ICN, SFO, MCO, JFK, DEN, FRA, MAD, SYD, and ATL are had very substantial growth vs. 2007.

Its very interesting how some airports dropped substantially in the rankings due to certain very fast growing airports. (In particular, DXB, MCO, SYD, CAN, and ICN are moving up the ranks as a "wolf pack" disrupting the rankings at the lower end of the scale.)

So which airports can keep up the growth?  hyper 
Should the ACI expand the list?  yes  I think its time to start publishing the top 40 or 50.  spin 

I do find it interesting that not one airport from India made the list.  scratchchin

March statistics are available.

More or less the same trends, but there are more airports losing traffic now. I was surprised to see FRA off the top ten list. If you look monthly, PEK is starting to lose traffic compared to the 10%+ yearly growth it had the last few years.

Also, with SYD, it usually ranks in the top 30 for the first half of the year then drops. ICN is more or less the same. I'm curious where the hell is MIA. It's not even in the top 30 anymore. Same with YYZ.

One more thing to add: ATL (if you look at the 12 month stats) has now broken a million movements for a 12 month period. Amazing.
