Hartsfield-Jackson has held the title of the world’s busiest airport in terms of passengers for more than 15 years and served more than 96 million passengers in 2014, according to Airports Council International (ACI).

The world's busiest airports by passenger traffic are measured by total passengers. These are defined as passengers enplaned plus passengers deplaned plus direct-transit passengers.

Although the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been the world's busiest airport every year since 2000, London City is the world's busiest city airport system by passenger count, with all airports combined.
