AsiaEdit

Bangkok

Beijing

  • 3 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.    
  • 4 Daxing Airport (PKX IATA). The newer international airport, opened in 2019.    

Busan

Delhi

Doha

Dubai

  • 8 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.    

Guangzhou

Hong Kong

Jakarta

Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe)

Kuala Lumpur

Manila

Mumbai

Nagoya

Seoul

Shanghai

Singapore

Sumatra

  • 20 Kualanamu Airport (KNO IATA). Transit airport linking domestic flights from all over Sumatra to international flights across Asia.    

Taipei

Tel Aviv

  • 22 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.    

Tokyo

Amsterdam

  • 25 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".    

Barcelona

  • 26 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.    

Copenhagen

Frankfurt

Helsinki

  • 29 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    

Istanbul

  • 30 Istanbul Airport (IST IATA) (Istanbul New Airport). Opened gradually from autumn 2018, it replaces Atatürk Airport which has now closed.    

London

Madrid

Manchester

Milan

Moscow

Munich

  • 39 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.    

Oslo

Paris

  • 41 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    
  • 42 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.    

Reykjavík

  • 43 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.    

Rome

Stockholm

Vienna

Zurich

Denver

  • 52 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.    

Detroit

Houston

Las Vegas

Los Angeles

  • 56 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.
