21 Biggest Airports in the World

If you like flying and airports, come with us and read about the biggest airports in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. As for me, I really love flying and everything that is in connectiont with it. I love even walking past the airport, I love the traffic there, the people with suitcases – really everything. Then I can sit in my seat, and watching the world underneath. I can see the large and deep rivers as pencils, and huge mountains as little hills. But what are the biggest airports? I didn’t know until I read the article. It was pretty interesting!

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three  of the biggest airports in the world.

The first one should be Incheon International Airport. (Number of passengers: 57,849,814) The Seoul Incheon International Airport is the largest civil aviation airport in South Korea. It serves the Capital Area and it has been one on all lists of biggest and busiest airports since 2005. It served over 57 million people in the year 2016 alone, which was an increase of over 17% compared to 2015. The second airport is Denver International Airport. (Number of passengers: 58,266,515) Finally a familiar name for our American readers, Denver International Airport served over 58 million people last year. However, Denver International Airport is not the busiest airport in the United States nor the last U.S. airport to be featured on the list either. However, it is the largest airport by land area in the U.S. Denver International Airport covers over 33,531 acres (52.4 sq mi) of land and cost almost $5 billion dollars to build. It was originally commissioned for much less money and there are many conspiracy theories surrounding the unique airport. The last airport on our list is Heathrow Airport. (Number of passengers: 75,715,474) If you were wondering when would Heathrow Airport show up on our list of biggest airports in the world, well your wait is over. Heathrow Airport occupies the prestigious 7th spot on our list because it served over 75 million people last year. To be honest, that number (if not more) is to be expected from the major international airport in London, United Kingdom.
