Tracking the world’s busiest airports

Summer is almost upon us and people are still looking for a good (and reasonably affordable) vacation. Most of the time, getaways include a long drive or a long plane ride. Unfortunately, it would take you days to get from one coast to another, it does not matter if you leave the United States. Therefore, booking a flight seems to be the fastest way to reach your chosen destination.

Men, women, young and old are thankful for the Wright brothers’ magnificent invention. And after a century since an airplane was made, airports in general have also improved to provide comfort and convenience for all travelers. Whether you’re stuck at the airport due to a delay (or worse, a canceled flight!), the airport serves as a temporary home and office for each passenger. Which is really good for forex traders.

And since traveling is really a must for business or pleasure, it would be nice to know which airport is the busiest throughout the year. At least you know what to expect when you get there.
