News and notes from Hartsfield-Jackson, the world's busiest airport

Hartsfield-Jackson again world's busiest in flights and passengers

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport again wears the double crown as the world's busiest airport, ranking highest in both flight counts and passengers for 2015.

The Atlanta airport lost half of its title when its flights counts for 2014 fell below that of Chicago O'Hare International Airport's traffic.

But the 2015 figures are out, and Atlanta has retaken the No. 1 spot from Chicago for flight totals. Hartsfield-Jackson had a total of 882,497 flights compared with O'Hare's 875,136, according to Federal Aviation Administration Statistics.
