A year ago, Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China was the world’s busiest air terminal, ascending to the No. 1 spot from its No. 11 positioning in 2019, as per the recent preliminary figures released by airport trade organization Airports Council International (ACI).

Guangzhou saw 43.8 million travelers in 2020, down 40% from 2019, while Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the United States had 42.9 million travelers a year ago, a 61% drop from 2019.

Airports in the Chinese urban communities of Chengdu, Shenzhen, Kunming, Shanghai and Xi’an were also among the top 10 in 2020, ascending from 2019 rankings as low as No. 46 (Shanghai’s Hongqiao International Airport) to break into the best 10.

Beijing Capital International Airport, which has regularly held the No. 2 spot and held that position in 2019, dropped to No. 6 on the 2020 list.

In 2020, air passenger traffic all throughout the world fell by almost 65%, as per ACI figures. Passenger traffic at the 10 busiest air terminals in 2020 dropped by almost 46%.

However, Airports Council International (ACI) doesn’t expect global passenger traffic to recuperate to 2019 levels before 2024.
