OAG unveils the airports leading the way in North America

Performance by airports of all sizes indicates healthy growth

Highlights in our latest report show that airports have grown the most in key performance metrics, including:

  • Fastest Growing Airports - seat capacity growth
  • The Trailblazers - scheduled routes 
  • Global Gateways - number of scheduled international routes
  • Turnaround Kings - aircraft turnaround time
  • Low-Cost Collaborators - percentage of seats operated by low-cost carriers

Airports were categorised and evaluated by size: Major, Large, Medium and Small.

Florida dominates the list of fastest growing airports, which is measured based on departing seat capacity growth. The top three Major airports – Orlando (MCO), Tampa (TPA) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) - all recorded growth of over 6.7%. 

Chicago Midway International (MDW) has the largest LCC share (95%) among Major airports, but Orlando International Airport (MCO) grew its LCC share the most over the 12-month period (10%). 

Canadian airports dominated in turnaround time overall, with three airports – Montreal (YUL), Toronto (YYZ) and Vancouver (YVR) – landing in the top five for the Major category and improving OTP by nearly 8%, 6% and 5% respectively. 

Analysing airports that have added the most new routes in the Trailblazers category is, Orlando International Airport (MCO) topped the Majors with 22 new routes, followed by Denver International Airport (DEN), with 17 new destinations and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) with 15 new routes.
