What are the top 5 busiest airports in the world? We ask this question utilizing data from RadarBox.com.

Surprisingly, all five of the airports are based in the United States, with the top two still battling it out for the busiest airport in the world number one spot.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

The Top 5 Busiest Airports in the World…

Data provided by RadarBox.com.

We start off proceedings with Los Angeles, which is the fifth busiest airport in the world, as per data from RadarBox.

They come fifth with average daily movements of 1,660 flights, with there being a gap between the fourth position contender, Denver International Airport.

Denver comes in as the fourth busiest airport in the world, with 1,848 average daily movements.

In third comes Dallas Fort Worth with 1,999 average daily flights, with Chicago coming in second at 2,083 and Atlanta at 2,197.

What this data shows is representative of the size of all five of those airports, including the multiple runways they have each, meaning that more movements can operate on a per-minute and on a per hour basis.

Of course, Atlanta comes in as the busiest, with them handling around 93.6 million passengers per year on average.

Over the course of the Summer, it will be interesting to see how much closer the battle gets for that title, with Chicago O’Hare continuing to creep up.

All eyes are clearly on the United States to see how things will unfold.
