International Air Transport Association
The International Air Transport Association is a trade association. Founded in 1945, all the airlines in the world are members of this association. IATA has been described as a cartel. In addition to setting technical standards for airlines, IATA also organized tariff conferences. These conferences served as a forum for price-fixing.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
Hartsfield-Jackson is the hub airport for Delta Airlines, AirTran Airways, and smaller airlines. Delta Airlines represents a massive part of Hartsfield-Jackson’s business. It flies nearly 60% of all ATL passengers.
This world-class airport has held the number one spot for two decades. The people of Atlanta should be very proud of their airport. It is considered a model for others around the world.
Beijing Capital International Airport
Los Angeles International Airport
It is the second-largest airport in the US. It is the only airport in the world that all three US legacy carriers (American, Delta, and United) have chosen as a hub. It is also a hub for Alaska Airlines, Virgin America, and Atlas Air (a cargo airline). Membership is just $7,500 per year. There is an additional fee of $2,700 for each domestic flight and $3,000 for each international flight. As of 2020, this airport was handling passenger traffic of about 44.8 million people!
Denver International Airport
Yes, that’s more than a mile. When taking off from Denver, you’re just a short distance away from cruising altitude! That short distance being around nine kilometers.
Orlando International Airport
This airport is the leading international airport in Florida. The surface area is about 53,83 km2. With a total of four runways, 47 million passengers pass by each year.
It’s surprising to see this airport on the list because no primary carrier uses it as a hub. The airfield is just 20 minutes away from the city and the famous amusement parks.
Fort Worth International Airport
The airport is almost exactly half the size of Cardiff, for comparison. It has seven operational runways. The airport provides its services to just shy of 70 million passengers. That’s 10 million passengers per runway. It means one million passengers per square kilometer. The total surface area of the airport is 69,63 km2.
In terms of passenger traffic, it can handle about 39 million people! Be careful, though! The airport is only rated 3.7 out of 5 stars on Google and I don’t see it changing much in the future!
Shanghai Pudong International Airport
Shanghai Pudong was opened in 1999 to ease pressure on Shanghai’s other airport, Hongqiao. It has become one of the busiest airports located in China. Hongqiao is still a major airport, but it serves primarily domestic flights. Pudong has both domestic and international flights. It is located just under 20 miles east of Shanghai’s city center. The airport welcomes a grand total of 74 million international passengers per year.
Cairo International Airport(CAI)
John F Kennedy International Airport
John F Kennedy International Airport is the busiest international airport in North America. It is the twentieth busiest airport in the world. John F Kennedy International Airport supports more than ninety airlines. As of 2019, John F Kennedy International Airport could handle 62 million passengers. It was previously known as Idlewild Airport. Following the assassination of the President in 1963, it was renamed as John F Kennedy International Airport.
