Top 10 US Airports - First 6 Months Stats

Sun Sep 29, 2019 8:12 pm

Here are the passenger statistics for the top ten US airports by 2018 passenger traffic, all of the counts go through June since some airports are slow to update their statistics. All airports have done pretty well so far this year besides SFO who had 200,000 less passengers so far this year. The percent change is for YTD. With most of these airports having major projects coming up over the next few years I think this list will be interesting to keep an eye on.

% change
ATL 54,388,291 3.29%
LAX 43,049,298 0.87%
ORD 40,416,506 2.39%
DFW 36,121,511 6.3%
DEN 32,704,709 6.1%
JFK 30,465,497 4.0%
SFO 27,703,509 -.08%
SEA 24,304,446 3.39%
LAS 25,273,533 3.1%
MCO 25,799,984 6.71%

I flew in and out of LAS last week and I was amazed how busy the airport was.

How about airports 11-20?

Looking at this list, LAX, JFK, SFO all seem to be maxed out in terms of expansion. I know ORD and DFW are adding gates. How about the others? Of curse, airlines can upgauge, but it's interesting to see who's growing and who's not.

LAS is like

70% Southwest

30% Other airlines

It is actually kind of funny seeing the disproportionate amount of WN planes in comparison to other aircraft

I liked the variety at LAS...large number of foreign carriers, Janet, private jets, helicopters...etc.

DEN is feeling super crowded. Adding gates won't help the trains to terminal which are getting to be like a can of sardines.
