A list of the busiest airports in the world, with photos. Each airport on this list handles tens of millions of passengers every year. Americans sure love air travel, as half of this list is dominated by American airports. Airplanes are such a common sight today that we forget what a life-changing invention they were. Despite the hassle, human flight is a miracle that has changed our world. Perhaps that thought will help the next time we have a kid kicking the back of our seat. Either way, flying is still the safest way the travel, even as it continues to gain in popularity to this very day.
