Top 50 Airports by Passengers Enplaned on Large U.S. Carriers

Dataset Excel: 

Data for 2013 are revised. Rank order by total enplaned passengers on large certificated U.S. air carriers (Majors, Nationals, Large Regionals, and Medium Regionals), scheduled and nonscheduled operations, at all airports served within the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and other U.S. areas designated by the Federal Aviation Administration.    Large certificated air carriers hold Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation authorizing the performance of air transportation. Large certificated air carriers operate at least one aircraft with seating capacity of more than 60 seats or a maximum payload capacity of more than 18,000 pounds. Data for commuter, small-certificated and foreign-flag air carriers are not included.


1 The total for the top 50 airports will not sum from the individual airports because some top 50 airports in 2012 were not in the top 50 in the earlier years.
