Passengers Boarded at the Top 50 U.S. Airports

(Ranked by Passenger Enplanements in 2018)

Dataset Excel: 

Data source starting in 2018 was changed to more accurately report number of enplaned passengers in the U.S. Previous years also reflect this change and may not be compatible with previous versions of this table.

Beginning in October 2002, data reports were expanded to include data for carriers that fly aircraft with 60 seats or less or having a payload capacity of 18,000 lbs. or less.


The 2008 and 2017 totals for the top 50 airports will not sum from the individual airports because some top 50 airports in 2018 were not in the top 50 in earlier years.

b All U.S. airports consists of 1,270 airports as of 2018 and include Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and U.S. Pacific Trust Territories and Possessions.
