The top airport in the US (and hence, the world) frequently revolves back and forth between ORD and ATL in terms of total operations.

Delta alone has almost if not over 1000 daily departures from ATL.

ATL, ORD & DFW definitely top the list in US. LHR & FRA in Europe.

DEN has a lot but I dont think that it is the top. It would have to be DFW or ORD.

If you are talking about aircraft movements, ORD has the most. ATL is the busiest in terms of passenger numbers, therefore they are each considered the "World's Busiest Airport" depending on the criteria used.

I understand busiest airport in world in a essentially 2 parallel runway configuration is MSP, while London Gatwick is busiest single runway? Any further info on this?
