People always complain about how busy airports are, but some of the busiest ones are even more hectic than we could have ever imagined. Data compiled from passenger traffic from 1,179 airports across the globe has given us a little more insight into the number of travelers who depart and land at these airports on a daily basis.
Based on the information gathered from 2016, we’ve created this list of the 10 busiest airports. Just wait until you see which one’s at the #1 spot!
15. Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport
Those who have flown in and out of Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN) in China know just how busy it can get. CAN was revamped and remodeled back in 2004 to replace its smaller and much more cramped design. These days, it’s almost five times larger than the old design to accommodate its increase in passengers and airplane traffic. With the previous late-night curfew abolished, CAN is now able to operate 24-hours a day which makes it a great option to catch a red-eye out of town. In 2016, the airport served 59,732,147 passengers – an astronomical increase of 8.2% from the previous year.
