According to data from RadarBox.com, Charlotte Douglas International Airport is currently busier than New York’s JFK.

The margin between the two airports is down to less than 100 weekly airports, but this is an unusual fact in the context of the Summer 2023 season.

Without further ado, let’s get into the numbers…
