Beijing International Airport has overtaken Heathrow as the world's second busiest in terms of seat capacity. The Chinese airport is now second only to Atlanta Hartsfield in the US, according to a new report by aviation analyst OAG, however Heathrow remains the world's busiest international airport, as both Atlanta and Beijing have a high proportion of domestic passengers.
The World's Busiest Airports Ranked by Seat Capacity are as follows:
1. Atlanta Hartsfield (ATL)
2. Beijing (PEK)
3. Heathrow (LHR)
4. Chicago O Hare (ORD)
5. Tokyo Haneda (HND)
6. Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG)
7. Los Angeles (LAX)
8. Frankfurt (FRA)
great to see PEK moving ahead, tho a lot of airlines are having problems at trying to get the correct slots, 3 terminals and 3 runways and there very full. already.
