Cancun Airport becomes one of the 10 busiest airports in the world

Cancun International Airport was one of the 10 airports with the highest international traffic worldwide during 2021, serving more than 13.2 million passengers. With this, it went from 61st position in 2019 in the ranking of the 10 busiest airports in the world, carried out by the Airports Council International (ACI), to 10th place.

In the international passenger ranking, Dubai International Airport has remained the main venue since 2019, with a traffic of 29.1 million passengers. This was followed by Istanbul Airport (with 26.4 million passengers) and Amsterdam International Airport-Schiphol, which served 25.4 million users.

“ACI’s passenger traffic rankings reflect an encouraging trend of recovery, with most of the busiest pre-COVID-19 airports returning to the top 10,” Luis Felipe de Oliveira, ACI director general, said in a statement. . “Although we are cautious that the recovery could face multiple headwinds, the momentum created by the reopening plans of several countries could lead to a rebound in travel towards the second half of 2022.”

Although the Cancun Airport is in tenth position, it is the venue that has had the fastest recovery in traffic in 2019, with just 19.7% below, surpassing while the rest oscillate in falls from 50% to 60%.

In Mexico, the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) remains the airport with the highest air traffic in the country, mainly fed by the domestic segment, but also in the international segment, where 17.6 million passengers were served in 2019.

However, since the COVID-19 pandemic, Cancun Airport has been the one with the highest international movement, which led it to close 2021 with 13.2 million passengers, higher than the 10.1 million AICM users.

In total passengers, eight of the 10 busiest airports worldwide are in the United States, while two operate in China, mainly fed by the domestic market. The top three in 2021 were Atlanta Airport (with 75.7 million users), Dallas/Fort Worth (62.4 million passengers), and Denver International Airport, which served 58.8 million travelers last year.
