CGH: Still Latin America's Busiest?

Wed Oct 03, 2007 2:35 am

With the new regulations now in effect at Sao Paulo's Congonhas airport, is it still the busiest in Latin America? If not, who gets the title now?

I think that stiil with regulations CGH is probably still the busiest LatAm airport,

if not, maybe MEX could get the title but I would need to check the numbers,

25. SDQ 2.400 (2003)


I don't know current figures but this might be very similar as of today. I think CGH is still the 2nd busiest but I wouldn't be surprised if CGH is surpassed by GRU now that many flights have been relocated there.

CGH would have to be the second busiest, no doubt about it. MEX is much busier, however if all the ops were moved to Garulhos, then maybe, but that would be impossible correct?

Quoting LAXspotter (Reply 3):

Guarulhos become the 2nd busiest in August. CGH is now the 3rd one.

Is impossible to see Guarulhos bigger than MEX without an additional terminal.
