ACI reveals top 20 airports for passenger traffic, cargo, and aircraft movements
Airports Council International (ACI) World has today revealed its preliminary world airport traffic rankings covering passenger traffic, cargo volumes, and aircraft movements for 2019 combined with a glimpse of 2020 data which shows the dramatic impact of COVID-19 on airports in the first quarter.
Passenger traffic at the world’s top 20 busiest airports grew by 1.7% in 2019. With more than 1.5 billion passengers passing through their terminals, this group of 20 represented 17% of global passenger traffic.
The ongoing COVID-19 crisis, however, has brought airports around the world to a virtual standstill, resulting in airport traffic and revenue losses across all regions. ACI World now estimates a reduction of more than 4.6 billion passengers and more than US$97 billion in revenue for 2020.
