Dallas is home to the world’s 10th-busiest airport.
Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport welcomed 64 million passengers in 2015, an increase of 0.9 percent from 2014, according to traffic data released this week by Airports Council International.
The world’s most-traveled airport? That distinction goes to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, which brought in more than 100 million passengers last year. It’s the 18th consecutive designation as world’s busiest airport for the Georgia transportation hub. According to the annual ACI report, overall passenger traffic was up 6.1 percent over 2014. International passenger growth rose 6.4 percent year-over-year.
With passenger traffic estimated to increase to more than 70 million in the next decade, DFW Airport’s economic impact continues to soar.
