World’s Busiest Airport 2020

Tue Apr 07, 2020 11:21 pm

2020 is going to be very interesting in terms of total pax counts. While we won’t know the numbers until nearly a year from now, I thought that it was a good time to talk about what airport will be the busiest. Atlanta has held the title for 21 years: 1998-2019. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it go somewhere else.

Leave your thoughts below!

The biggest hubs will probably hold onto their titles (with the exception of hard hit areas like NY). Flights to smaller hubs are being cut in favor of flights to the biggest hubs to to offer the most connections and fill the most seats.

With Cathay already slightly affected by the protests at the very beginning of 2020 and recently slashing 96% of capacity, I doubt HKG will be up there.

I don’t think PEK will as high given some airlines are consolidating to PKX?

Based on his selection of airports, I am assuming the reason he picked them is because of cargo movements.

I don't think it will ultimately be #1 but for now this is the busiest airport around.....


Okay, tried to insert image of a Fisher Price airport but can't figure out how to do it.
