If you’ve been to Denver International Airport in the last year and thought, “man, this place is busy” it’s because it is!

The Airports Council International has just released its annual report on the top 10 busiest airports for passengers in 2022 and the U.S. is home to half of them.

Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has often claimed the busiest title, it held it for 22 years until the pandemic hit and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China was the world’s busiest in 2020. But Atlanta reclaimed it in 2021 and has held onto it for 2022.

Denver is no Atlanta, but we’re close…

The World’s Top 10 Busiest Airports for Passengers in 2022

  1. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta, Georgia
  2. Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas
  3. Denver, Colorado
  4. Chicago O’Hare, Illinois
  5. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  6. Los Angeles, California
  7. Istanbul, Turkey
  8. London Heathrow, United Kingdom
  9. Delhi, India
  10. Paris Charles de Gaulle, France
