This speaks volumes. Either we are congested or incredibly populated.

According to CNN, half of the world’s 10 busiest airports are in the United States.

Leading the way, of course, is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which has always been one of the busiest in the world until the pandemic knocked it off stride. Atlanta is the home of Delta Air Lines and a major hub for others. ATL saw an influx of more than 93 million passengers in 2022.

The rankings were released by Airports Council International, the lobby group for more than 2,000 airports, earlier this week. Coming in at number two, with 73 million passengers passing through, was Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, which is the headquarters of American Airlines.

“In the international markets, of course, we are suffering a little bit more in terms of the recovery,” said Luis Felipe de Oliveira, director general of ACI World, in an interview with CNN Travel.
