ACI's preliminary passenger traffic results have shown the most-travelled airports, with Atlanta-Hartsfield-Jackson with over 100 million passengers in 2015.

Beijing airport fell in traffic, but remained in second position, followed by Shanghai airport, growing 16.3% last year.
 
Dubai airport moved form 6th position up to third, growing by 10.7%. The airport also stands as the world’s busiest airport in terms of international passengers, connecting long-haul flights across the world. Chicago O’Hare moved into fourth place.
 
The world’s busiest air cargo hub continues to be Hong Kong, followed by Memphis.
 
Doha entered into the top 20, after a growth of 46% in air cargo volumes in 2015.
 
“In certain markets, we see both airlines and airport operators expanding and optimizing their capacity in order to accommodate the growing demand for air transport. Airport capacity considerations on the supply side within major city markets will remain paramount to the issue of accommodating the surge in demand for air travel," said Angela Gittens, director general, ACI World.
