Wikivoyage has articles for several dozen of the world's largest and most-complicated international airports. They are designed to help you navigate safely and comfortably around them, and provide essential knowledge such as information on eating and sleeping options in the airport, and onward travel advice. This article lists our current airport articles by continent and city.
- 6 Capital Airport (PEK IATA). The second busiest airport in the world by passenger count - at least before the new Daxing airport opened which will take over much of its traffic.
- 7 Daxing Airport (PKX IATA). The newer international airport, opened in 2019.
- 8 Gimhae Airport (PUS IATA). Overtaken as the biggest South Korean airport outside greater Seoul by the one serving Jeju.
- 11 Dubai Airport (DXB IATA). The world's busiest airport for international traffic, due to its strategic location between east and west. Much of its traffic is made up of flight connections on the Middle East carrier Emirates rather than passengers using Dubai as origin or destination.
- 17 Kualanamu Airport (KNO IATA). Transit airport linking domestic flights from all over Sumatra to international flights across Asia.
- 25 Ben Gurion Airport (TLV IATA). Despite lying in a very tense region and Israel (as well as its national symbols and aviation) frequently being the target of terrorism, the airport enjoys a stellar reputation for safety and security.
- 28 Schiphol Airport (AMS IATA). Hub for flag carrier KLM, one of the oldest airlines in the world and one of the top contenders for "most countries served from one airport". Curiously lies below sea level, which is interesting because its name means "ship grave".
- 29 El Prat Airport (BCN IATA). Spain's amusingly-named second hub has some architectural features of the modernisme movement that helped make Barcelona's name. The route MAD-BCN was among the ten busiest in the world until competition with high speed rail made flights increasingly unattractive.
- 30 Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER IATA) (Willy Brandt Airport). The long-awaited new international airport serving Germany's capital opened 31st October 2020.
- 31 Copenhagen Airport (CPH IATA). The busiest airport in the Nordic countries according to 2017 numbers, this airport also offers flights to Greenland and the Faroes
- 34 Helsinki Airport (HEL IATA). Historically one of Europe's airports with the most connections to east Asia, as it is close enough to the north pole for air routes avoiding Soviet (now Russian) airspace
- 35 Istanbul Airport (IST IATA) (Istanbul New Airport). Opened gradually from autumn 2018, it replaces Atatürk Airport which has now closed.
- 36 Lisbon Airport (LIS IATA). A major hub connecting Europe with former Portuguese colonies in Africa and South America, particularly Brazil.
- 37 Heathrow Airport (LHR IATA). Europe's busiest airport by international traffic, and the world's second.
- 38 Gatwick Airport (LGW IATA). London's second hub is as drab and functional as they come.
- 39 Stansted Airport (STN IATA). Busy low cost and business aviation hub.
- 40 Adolfo Suárez Airport (MAD IATA) (Barajas Airport). Spain's main hub has Europe's best air links to Latin America.
- 45 Munich Airport (MUC IATA) (Franz Josef Strauß Airport). Officially named after a conservative politician from Bavaria (died 1988) and Germany's second airport. The airport replaced Riem Airport in 1992.
- 47 Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG IATA). Built to replace Orly, it's France's biggest international hub and the main base of flag carrier Air France
- 48 Orly Airport (ORY IATA). Besides its role as a domestic hub, it also sees several intercontinental flights to French overseas territories and departments and a wide selection of (mainly short-haul) international flights.
- 49 Keflavík Airport (KEF IATA). Not to be confused with Reykjavik's domestic airport, this airport is Iceland's principal door to the world and sees flights from both sides of the Atlantic.
- 54 Hartsfield–Jackson Airport (ATL IATA). The busiest airport in the world by passenger count for several years in a row, mostly on the strength of Delta's hub.
Dallas and Fort WorthEdit
- 58 Denver Airport (DEN IATA). Moved to its current site "overnight" in 1995 after old Stapleton Airport had grown too small and too close to downtown for modern needs. Famously contains a bunch of "weird" artwork that has given rise to absurd conspiracy theories.
- 62 Los Angeles Airport (LAX IATA). Often called the airport with the highest "destination traffic", i.e. travelers that intend to visit the area the airport serves instead of boarding a connecting flight.
Minneapolis and Saint PaulEdit
New York CityEdit
- 66 John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK IATA). While only the fifth busiest airport in the U.S. by total passenger count, JFK is the busiest by international passenger count and the only American airport to make the top 20 in that list.
- 67 LaGuardia Airport (LGA IATA).
- 68 Newark Liberty Airport (EWR IATA).
- 69 Orlando Airport (MCO IATA). A useful international gateway to the Caribbean, both through connecting flights and through cruises departing from Port Canaveral.
