List of the busiest airports in the Caribbean

This is a list of the busiest airports in the Caribbean region by passenger traffic. Statistics are available for almost all the airstrips taken into account. The present list intends to include all the international airports located in the area geographically defined as the Caribbean. Given that each country has a different body to control these statistics, the compilation of data is difficult and not homogeneously distributed. The information presented here, represents the best available data from different Internet sources. The list contains statistics for different years, since each country authority does not have strong regulations reporting passengers traffic. The ranking is ordered according to total passenger traffic (unless the footnotes indicate the contrary). Information on aircraft movements or cargo movements is not available for all of the airports.
