Airport passenger throughput listings are interesting. They are not what you imagine.
Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport is at No. 1 with almost 88 million passengers, down 2.3% from 2008 after Delta Air Lines Inc. trimmed capacity at its hometown hub. London Heathrow, whose biggest operator is British Airways, was second with 66 million passengers, a 1.5% decline.
China’s 8.7% economic expansion last year was helped by Beijing Capital International Airport, whose biggest carrier is China Southern Airlines Co.
O’Hare slipped to fourth, with an 8.8% tumble to 64.4 million as its biggest tenants American Airlines and United Airlines, slashed capacity to cut costs.
Money Telegram.com said Chicago’s decline was the steepest, followed by Las Vegas and Amsterdam.
