Atatürk Airport outstripped Frankfurt Airport and moved up two ranks in the list. The Heathrow Airport in London was left outside of the top five busiest airports list, and fell by three ranks to the sixth.
Based on reports from 1,144 airports worldwide, ACI’s preliminary passenger traffic results for the most-travelled airports in 2015 revealed that the top spot continues to belong to Atlanta-Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL). Beijing and Dubai airports followed Atlanta.
"Growing by 5.5 percent year over year in passenger traffic to the record-breaking total of over 100 million passengers in 2015, Atlanta has benefited tremendously from its strategic location as a major connecting hub and port of entry into North America" said the statement released by the ACI.
