We all have our favorite airports. Are yours in line with the rest of the world? A new study from Cabin Crew HQ will tell you.


The website, geared toward aspiring cabin crew members, studied and ranked the world’s busiest airports on an array of factors, including on-time performance, amenities such as restaurants and shops, parking fees, and more.


Based on data, Cabin Crew HQ found Tokyo International Haneda Airport is the best of the bunch, followed by Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Tokyo International Haneda Airport’s high ranking was credited to its 88.4 percent on-time flight average and high number of shops and restaurants.


Beyond ranking airports based on overall factors to determine the world’s favorites, the study also gathered other useful data. For example, it found the busiest international airport with the cheapest parking was Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Indonesia, where weekly parking fees are a mere $2.80. It also found the busiest international airport with the most restaurants is Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México, with more than 160 eateries.
