AIN Interactives

AIN Interactives looks at the 50 Busiest Airline Airports and the 50 Busiest General Aviation Airports as outlined by the FAA's Air Traffic Activity Data System. The busiest airline airports measure air carrier operations, while the busiest GA airports measure itinerant general aviation operations (and excludes those considered "local"). Air taxi and military operations are not included although they occur at both types of airports. Four of those highlighted - ANC, HOU, SNA and SLC - are on both lists because they have significant airline and general aviation operations.
