World's Busiest Airport

Post by Knight255 »

In your opinion, would the world's busiest airport be defined as having the most passengers, or the most takeoffs/landings?? Just curious cause I just found some new numbers. I cannot find anything on takeoffs/landings so if someone could help I would appreciate it. :)

It claimed that Centennial Airport in Denver was in top ten becasue of all the little private planes taking off and landing and doing touch and goes.

Okay, perhaps we should state takeoffs/landings to/from other airports?? :?

Who is "it"? I get all the departure/approach traffic from Centennial over my house. It is alot, but you should see Koln-Bonn in the summer! I think that buisiness should be defined by number of takeoffs/landing to/from another airport more than a certain distance: say, 100 kilometers

A busy airport is for me an airport who has many movements.
When you have at an airport1 5 A380's a day or airport2 you get 15 A320 and 5 B737's then for me airport2 is busier than airport1 even if airport1 has more passengers.
