Wikivoyage has articles for 55 of the world's largest and most-complicated international airports. They are designed to help you navigate safely and comfortably around them, and provide essential knowledge such as information on eating and sleeping options in the airport, and onward travel advice. This article lists our current airport articles by continent and city.
- 3 Capital Airport. The second busiest airport in the world by passenger count. As of 2017 construction for an even bigger airport to replace or supplement this airport is underway.
- 7 Dubai Airport. The world's busiest airport for international traffic, due to its strategic location between east and west. Much of its traffic is connecting traffic on the Middle East carriers rather than origin or destination.
Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe)
- 16 Incheon Airport. Opened in 2001 to relieve old Gimpo airport, Incheon is the primary international and intercontinental hub while Gimpo handles domestic and short haul international flights
- 19 Ben Gurion Airport. Despite lying in a very tense region and Israel (as well as its national symbols and aviation) frequently being the target of terrorism, the airport enjoys a stellar reputation for safety and security.
- 22 Schiphol Airport. Hub for flag carrier KLM, one of the oldest airlines in the world and one of the top contenders for "most countries served from one airport". Curiously lies below sea level, which is interesting because its name means "ship grave".
- 23 El Prat Airport. Spain's amusingly-named second hub has some architectural features of the modernisme movement that helped make Barcelona's name. The route MAD-BCN was among the ten busiest in the world until competition with high speed rail made flights increasingly unattractive.
- 26 Atatürk Airport. Named after the honorific ("father of the Turks") granted to the founder and first president of modern Turkey.
- 27 Gatwick Airport. London's second hub is as drab and functional as they come.
- 28 Heathrow Airport. Europe's busiest airport by international traffic, and the world's second.
- 29 Stansted Airport. Busy low cost and business aviation hub.
- 30 Adolfo Suárez Airport (Barajas Airport). Spain's main hub has Europe's best air links to Latin America.
- 33 Munich Airport (Franz Josef Strauß Airport). Officially named after a conservative politician from Bavaria (died 1988) and Germany's second airport
- 35 Charles de Gaulle Airport. Built to replace Orly, it's France's biggest international hub and the main base of flag carrier Air France
- 36 Orly Airport. Besides its role as France's domestic airport, it also sees several intercontinental flights to French overseas territories and departments.
- 40 Hartsfield–Jackson Airport. The busiest airport in the world by passenger count for several years in a row, mostly on the strength of Delta's hub.
Dallas and Fort Worth
- 43 Denver Airport. Moved to its current site "overnight" in 1995 after old Stapleton Airport had grown too small and too close to downtown for modern needs. Famously contains a bunch of "weird" artwork that has given rise to absurd conspiracy theories.
- 45 Los Angeles Airport. LAX, as it is commonly referred to, is often called the airport with the highest "destination traffic", i.e. travelers that intend to visit the area the airport serves instead of boarding a connecting flight.
New York City
- 48 John F. Kennedy Airport. While only the fifth busiest airport in the U.S. by total passenger count, it is the busiest by international passenger count and the only American airport to make the top 20 in that list.
- 49 Newark Airport.
- 50 Orlando Airport. A useful international gateway to the Caribbean, both through connecting flights and through cruises departing from Port Canaveral.
