O'Hare Regains 'Busiest Airport' Title From Atlanta

O'Hare Regains 'Busiest Airport' Title From Atlanta

Chicago's O'Hare Airport appears to have reclaimed the title of the nation's busiest airport from Hartsfield Atlanta in 2001, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) figures released today indicate.
O'Hare recorded 911,861 takeoffs and landings during the year, compared with Hartsfield's 887,403 for the same time period. Favorable weather, particularly in the spring and summer, and a reduction in labor disputes, boosted O'Hare's number of operations last year.

However Atlanta had more commercial airline flights during the year, reporting 671,049 operations, compared with O'Hare's 650,019,

O'Hare experienced a sharp decline in both domestic and international commercial traffic in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

This is actually quite impressive, especially when you think about how much more of an impact the weather can pose to ORD.
