The Indira Gandhi International Airport in India's capital, Delhi, was the fastest growing airport in the world in 2017, overtaking six airports in a year, with a growth rate of more than 14%.
Amongst other big global airports, Delhi Airport overtook Denver (USA), Incheon (South Korea) and Singapore's Changi Airport in passenger traffic. It must be noted here that Changi Airport is ranked in most surveys as the world's best airport.
In the current year (2018), Delhi Airport is expected to overtake Istanbul (Turkey), Frankfurt (Germany), Guangzhou (China), Dallas/FortWorth (USA), Amsterdam's Schipol Airport, and the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, to emerge as the world's 10th busiest airport.
If Narendra Modi is re-elected as Prime Minister of India in 2019, the world will not be surprised if IGIA Delhi becomes the world's 6th busiest airport by the end of that year. India's high flying Prime Minister is not just leading the overall nation to unprecedented growth rates, but is also giving special emphasis to making flying affordable to 50% of the nation's 1.34 billion people.
The Indira Gandhi International Airport handled 63.5 million passengers in 2017.
The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in USA (104 million passengers), Beijing's Capital International Airport in China (96 million), Dubai Airport (88 million passengers), Tokyo's Haneda International Airport in Japan (85 million) and the Los Angeles International Airport in USA (84.6 million passengers) were the TOP FIVE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS ON EARTH LAST YEAR.
