Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport has been the busiest airport  (by passenger number) for many years. The airport’s strategic location and role as the main hub for one of the world’s largest airlines combine to make it the busiest in the world.

According to data from Airports Council International (ACI), Atlanta tops the list for the highest passenger volume, with just over 110 million passengers in 2019 (this represents a 2.9% growth over 2018).

The busiest airport in Europe is London Heathrow (in seventh place) with 81 million, closely followed by Paris Charles de Gaulle with 76 million.
