As one of PASSME's aims is improve the passenger experience despite the busy airport environment, we found this report on the busiest airports in the world by the Airports Council International very interesting. This article by Business Insider UK summarises the report. It is definitely worth reading!
The Airports Council International (ACI) released its list of the busiest airports in the world on Monday. Once again, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) took with the top spot, with more than 100 million passengers in 2015. According to the ACI, this represents an increase in traffic of over 5.5% over 2014. The trade group attributes Atlanta's success to its strategic location, where it is within a two-hour flight of 80% of the US population. In addition, the ACI credits the growth of ATL's largest tenant — Delta Air Lines — for the airport's continued expansion in the traffic. Globally, the number of people traveling by air grew at a rate of 6.1% in 2015.
"It's impressive to witness the dynamic character of the aviation industry and its evolution over time," ACI World Director General Angela Gittens said in a statement. "Even in the most mature markets such as the United States and parts of Western Europe, several of the major hubs experienced year-over-year growth rates in passenger traffic that were well above the historical growth levels for these regions."
