Top 50 Busiest Towers in the United States

Every year the “F Hey Hey” crunches their numbers and comes out with the standings for the past fiscal year (FY). This data is important in establishing bragging rights. Without further ado, here’s the list.

RANK TOWER NAME FY15 FY16 CHANGE

Atlanta taking the top spot is no surprise. What is a surprise however, is how much the traffic at Houston Intercontinental has dropped off. The “Merger” between Continental and United was supposed to add about 300 flights a day, instead traffic has dropped by about 77 flights a day. Moving traffic to Denver and Chicago has definitely not helped things. IAH tower was recently downgraded from a level 12, to level 11. >>>Click here for 11-20>>>
