November 2000 results from over 660 airports worldwide show passenger traffic rising 4 percent and cargo 3 percent with movements unchanged compared with November 1999. For January through November 2000, passenger traffic was up 6 percent, cargo 7 percent and movements 1 percent.



In November 2000, passenger traffic growth was highest in Asia/Pacific (+7 percent), followed by Europe (+5 percent), Latin America/Caribbean and North America (+3 percent each) and Africa and the Middle East (+2 percent each). Las Vegas-McCarran and New York La Guardia (+9 percent each) registered the highest growth rate among the world`s top 30 airports, followed by Tokyo-Narita and Seoul-Gimpo (+8 percent each), Houston Intercontinental and Madrid-Barajas (+7 percent each). Traffic continued to decline at five major U.S. airports primarily due to reduced air service frequencies. Among them: Miami (-5 percent) and Dallas/Ft. Worth (-3 percent). Atlanta-Hartsfield with 6.5 million passenger handled remains the world`s busiest airport.



Cargo handled rose in the Middle East (+8 percent), Africa and Europe (+7 percent each) and Asia/Pacific (+6 percent), but it was flat in North America and down in Latin America/Caribbean (-4 percent). Hong Kong, with over 217,000 metric tonnes, squeaked past perennial leader Memphis which came in second with 208,000 metric tonnes. Beijing (+28 percent) was the fastest growing airport, followed by Dubai (+13 percent), Osaka-Kansai (+11 percent), Frankfurt, Sharjah and Dallas/Ft. Worth (+10 percent each).



Aircraft movements increased in Asia/Pacific (+5 percent), Middle East and Europe (+3 percent each) and Latin America/Caribbean and Africa (+2 percent each). They were down in North America (-3 percent).
