Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of busiest airports in Asia, ranked by total passengers per year, which includes arrival, departure and transit passengers. Beijing Capital International Airport has been the busiest airport in Asia since 2009. The tables also shows the percentage change in total passenger traffic over last year. Asian airports are those that are located in the 48 countries and 6 dependent states as defined by UN and fall within the Asian region. Airports in Moscow and Istanbul airport are located in the European part of their respective countries and so are not included in this list. While Turkey is a member state of The Council of Europe which includes Turkish airspace within Europe and hence traffic of Turkish airports, even those falling in the Asian region, are included in the busiest airport in Europe list.

As of 2016, China has 20 airports in the top 50, while Japan has six, India has four, South Korea and Indonesia have three each, and Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, UAE and Thailand have two each. Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan (Republic of China), Philippines, Qatar, and Israel have one each.
