It is often heard that Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport is the busiest airport in the world. On an individual airport basis, that is correct. But when you calculate the total air passengers passing through each market (single airport or multiple-airport), the data shows Atlanta is not even close to the busiest air passenger market in the world, nor is it even the busiest in the United States. Instead, those designations go to Greater London and New York City respectively. In fact, Atlanta’s air passenger traffic would have to increase by approximately 50 percent to reach the total air passenger traffic flying in and out of Greater London. Below is the 2011 data for each of the 25 busiest air travel markets as compiled from the resources listed at the end of the post.
Wish to stay with this one…
The Amsterdam region has two more airports: Rotterdam,-The Hague and Eindhoven. The total amount of passengers would rise to almost 53 million visitors. Rotterdam has 1.2 million passengers and Eindhoven 2,7 million.
Been through Shiphol, or however its spelled; an OK airport (“ship’s port” is what I think it means)
Interesting. I was there in 2008 when our flight to Gatwick was diverted due to snow.
Schiphol’s name is derived from a former fortification named Fort Schiphol which was part of the Stelling van Amsterdam defence works. Before 1852, the Haarlemmermeer polder in which the airport lies was a large lake, in the shallow waters of which sudden violent storms could claim many ships. This was the main reason for reclaiming it. In English, Schiphol translates to ‘Ship Grave’, a reference to the number of ships lost in the area
That is interesting. Thank you.
