The National Airports Council is the result of the merger of several associations that gave birth to this non-profit organization: the CIA. it is he who gathers the figures, the good practices and contributes to the organization of the relations between the airports and the airlines, security problems etc.
Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, United States
As bizarre as it may sound, it is the Atlanta Airport in Georgia which is the largest airport in the world. This airport is indeed used as a hub. This allows to improve their filling rate by offering flights with stops.
Beijing International Airport, China
Beijing Airport is the largest airport in Asia. But it should be noted that it operates mainly domestic flights. What is more normal than flying in China, which is one of the largest countries in the world.
The Beijing airport was inaugurated on March 2, 1958, but it is in 1980 that the airport will be really completed to reach its full power. The last terminal was inaugurated on February 29, 2008. It is a safe bet that Beijing airport traffic will continue to grow in the coming years. Because China is the most populous country in the world and the city of Beijing has an undeniable tourist interest. The airport is 20 kilometers from Beijing.
Dubai International Airport, UAE
Dubai Airport is the third largest airport in the world in terms of traffic. It is thanks to the number of international passengers that he has managed to develop in this way. You have probably already noticed but many flights call at Dubai. Because in fact the airport’s strategy has been to become an international hub thanks to its rather central location. Indeed Dubai is located equidistant from Europe and Asia, this allows the airport of Dubai a number of impressive connections. So in a way, the Dubai airport is the paradise for a stopover.
Number of passengers transiting the airport: 78,014,838 including 70.5 million international passengers.
Chicago O’Hare International Airport
This airport is the hub of North America. It is located in the state of Illinois. O’Hare is known as the airport with the most delay. Because 1/6 of canceled flights to the US concern the airport O’Hare. Note that the airport is named after a US Navy pilot killed in action in 1943 in the Pacific. The number of daily rotations is just exceptional as we record almost 2,400 landings and take-offs each day. That is 882,600 rotations per year.
Tokyo International Airport, Japan
Nothing more normal than to find a Japanese airport at this place. Because Japan is the tenth most populated country in the world and its inhabitants so often use the plane to travel abroad or to move from one island to another. The configuration of the country therefore makes the plane the most efficient and convenient mode of transportation.
London Heathrow International Airport, United Kingdom
London is a really nice city to spend the weekend. Because it is a varied city, sometimes rainy and misty to see expensive. But I have the impression that we never get tired of going there. So why not succumb to a weekend in London.
Los Angeles International Airport, United States
Los Angeles Airport is made up of 8 terminals and is 26 kilometers from the city center. And he was born in 1928 with the purchase of land by the city council to create an airport.
