Handy Facts About 20 Largest Airports in the World

The Airports Council International, based in Switzerland, is the industry organization which compiles and publishes data for all the largest airports in the world every year. Atlanta leads the largest airports in the word table by a wide margin and has done so since 2000.

The world’s oldest airport is a subject of some discussion. Flying pioneer Wilbur Wright established an airfield which is still in use in Maryland (USA) in 1909 already, but Croydon, England, has some claim to being the first to handle international passengers from March 1920 – just before Schiphol. It served London until it was replaced by Heathrow, and closed in 1959.
