List of busiest airports by passenger traffic

The world's busiest airports by passenger traffic are measured by total passengers (data from Airports Council International), defined as passengers enplaned plus passengers deplaned plus direct-transit passengers. Due to the global effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport was the world's busiest airport in 2020,[1] taking it from Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which had been the world's busiest airport every year from 1998 to 2019. Alternatively, London has the world's busiest city airport system by passenger count. As of 2019, six countries have at least two airports in the top fifty, with the United States at fifteen and Greater China at eleven; Germany, India, Japan, Spain, and the United Kingdom have two airports each. In terms of regions, North America has seventeen airports in the top fifty, followed by East Asia at fourteen, Europe at nine, Southeast Asia at five, South Asia and West Asia at two each, and Oceania at one.
