Total Passenger Traffic at D/FW Airport Up Slightly in 2016



    NBC 5 News
    Total traffic at DFW International Airport in 2016 fell from a 10th place ranking to 11th worldwide, Wednesday April 19, 2017.

    D/FW International Airport saw a slight increase in traffic in 2016 according to a new report.

    The summary from the Airports Council International ranks the total passenger traffic year to year. In 2015, D/FW ranked 10th, but fell one place to 11th in 2016 despite the 0.2% overall increase in total traffic.

    Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport came in as the busiest airport worldwide for the 19th year in a row with more than 104 million passengers.

    The report also shows Los Angeles International as fourth and Chicago O'Hare International as sixth.

    However D/FW International Airport did rank fourth in the world for total take-offs and landings.

    D/FW International did not rank in the top 20 for international traffic, air cargo, or international air cargo.

    Editor's note: The story previously reported that traffic was down in 2016 due to the falling in ranking.  That was inaccurate and we regret the error.
