The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport ranked the second busiest airport in the world based on passenger traffic last year.

The data comes from the Airports Council International, a trade association for the world’s airports.

DFW Airport reported nearly 62.5 million passengers last year, a 58.7% increase from 2020, according to the ACI. Coming in first was the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which saw more than 75.7 million passengers last year, the data showed.

“The ACI World passenger traffic rankings tell the story of an encouraging trend of recovery, with most of the recurrent busiest airports pre-COVID-19 back at the top,” ACI World Director General Luis Felipe de Oliveira said in an April 11 news release.

ACI recorded nearly 4.5 billion global passengers last year, an increase of almost 25% compared with 2020. But the latest numbers are still about 50% below prepandemic passenger numbers from 2019, according to the ACI.

DFW Airport ranked fourth in passenger traffic worldwide in 2020 with more than 39.3 million users, data showed. In 2019, the airport ranked 10th in the world with more than 75 million passengers, data showed.

The airport located between Dallas and Fort Worth was also ranked third busiest in the world in terms of flights with 651,895 landings and takeoffs, the ACI report stated.

“At DFW, we continue on a path forward that prioritizes the customer’s journey, operational excellence and a culture that welcomes all to North Texas,” DFW Airport CEO Sean Donohue said in an April 14 news release. “We look forward to working with all of our business partners to serve customers as the busy summer travel period approaches.”
