DFW A Distant Third
The Associated Press
reports for the third year in a row, according to preliminary FAA
data for 2007, Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport
retained its title as the nation's busiest airport, measured by
number of flights. Hartsfield saw 994,466 takeoffs and landings in
2007, up 1.8 percent from last year.
O'Hare saw 935,000 operations, down 2.4 percent from 2006.
Dallas-Fort Worth International was a distant third, with
Atlanta airport officials said Hartsfield-Jackson's increase
came from growing demand for air travel in the metro Atlanta area,
and successful growth strategies by Delta Air Lines and AirTran
Airways, which both have hubs in Atlanta.
"AirTran's domestic growth strategy is working as is Delta's
international strategy, which should help us remain a prominent
connecting point," said ATL spokesman Herschel Grangent.
Atlanta added a fifth runway last year. Chicago O'Hare faces
what's expected to be a long NIMBY battle to expand.
