Well, biggest in terms of size or people?

In terms of SIZE, I'd say Dallas Fort-Worth. I hear thats huge. And worldly, maybe London Heathrow. That place is monsterous.

For people, I'd say for the US, O'Hare, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Atlanta. World - Heathrow, Sydney, Paris.



My posts/replies are strictly my opinion and not that of any company, organization, or Southwest Airlines.

Biggest in Size. is

DENVER.. 34 000 Heactares..
Bigger than the city limits of Boston, Miami, or San Fran..
And Twice the size of Manhattan.. :O

DFWs next. ORD/ Houston's pretty big.. and.. Honolulu..
Thats monsterous. as well as Kennedy. my 6 choices.

The Ultimate is Edwards Airforce base with a 11km runway..!! :O damm!

International size is.
King Khalid international Airport in Ryaid, Saudi Arabia..
53 000 Hectares.. DAMM!! Thats like the size of Long Island..! 2 runways both at just over 5km.
Second to that is. uh..
Now Im not really as sure.
AMS / CDG / NEW INCHON INTERNATIONAL/ Maybe Changi. and..Rome Flumcino.. or New Athens Airport..
MOscows pretty big too.

Business is.. Atlanta, ORD. LHR, JFK, LAX. Narita. CDG, HKG, FRA, SYD and SEL.. or new INchon International.
I may be wrong at few places here.. but best I can remember.



Expanding my global domination one spotter at a time..

once i heard that, regarding only size in hectares or square metres, MCO is the fourth biggest airport in the USA. i saw a picture of MCO from the bird perspective and it really seems big.
is this true???
i´ve often been to DFW and it´s certainly huge, and most of the surrounding land belongs to the airport as well, so they could expand it even much more.

I think the largest airport in the U.S. by square miles is DEN. It's like 53 square miles.

Yeah, MCO is the largest in FL. But DEN is the largest in the U.S. 53 sq. miles.

PNS1:
He means largest in the context of size (Sq. miles).

For a fact, I know ATL (Atlanta, GA) is the largest. It just beat Chicago O'Hare this past year in passenger size.

Ok, by area, King Khalid and Jeddah are two of the world's largest airports - both in Saudi Arabia. Denver International is third, and first in the United States. As for Moscow Airport - which one - there are more than 5.
