Even for a small airport this growth is great news. I have to admit. This is one of my very favorite threads seeing on how much growth at each airport.

MCO/MIA dejavu from that post.

MCO was supposed to pass MIA as busiest airport in Florida over a decade ago. The rest is history.

When the economy tanks and things get bad in avaition, MIA has a world city at its doorstep. MCO has a theme park.

Does expose the problems at MIA with high costs and FLL poaching would be MIA customers (EK)

I think what you mean is that MIA has connecting passengers, while MCO is mostly O&D. Miami isn't a world city. It's the US connection to Latin America. Miami is one of the least diverse major cities in the the US.

I think the low fare airlines are encouraging more people to fly. Set even more records in 2017.

KRP (Karup, Denmark)
2015: 129,404
2016: 155,003 + 19.8%

KRP has for fifty years served one route only, KRP-CPH. Cimber Air (later Cimber-Sterling) did a magnificent job on that route for decades.

Then it became a Norwegian Air Shuttle strategy to kill this much smaller competitor. Among other such things Norwegian put in a B738 on the route and lowered the fare to DKK 1.00 (US$ 0.15).

In May 2012 Cimber-Sterling folded, and Norwegian reduced to 2 x daily with an old B733 wreak which constantly broke down with delays and cancelations as a consequence.

The airport would have been closed if it hadn't had nine owners - nine surrounding municipalities - who incidentally were unable to make that decision at the same time. The taxpayers had to swallow the economic losses.

Norwegian got so much (well deserved!) bad-mouth from customers and press that they chose to quit a couple of years back in time. Since then Danish Air Transport (DAT) has re-developed the route, now up to 8 x daily with ATR.

DAT has constantly increased frequency and will likely soon end up with 10 x daily on workdays, they say. As a new thing a couple of dozen charter flights to Greece will be done this summer with DAT's MD-80, making KRP also an international airport.

The airport owners are hoping to reach 250,000 pax/yr in a few years time, same as in the good old days 20-30 years ago. That will make the airport economically sustainable, and all talk about closing it should cease. For that the airport has launched a DKK 200,000 (US$ 30,000) promotion campaign and renamed the airport into "Midtjyllands Lufthavn" (Central Jutland Airport) instead of naming it after the closest village. That's probably a little "overkill" since there are three airports in what most people would call central Jutland, and KRP is by far the smallest among them.

I'll probably get a lot of flack from free market enthusiasts (which includes me, up to a point), but it sounds like Norwegian used predatory pricing to ruin a competitor. There should be laws to prevent that, and extremely heavy fines for companies caught doing it. Norwegian should have been banned from doing business in Denmark (at least for a period of time).

Countries howl to the World Trade Organization when China, for instance, dumps steel at below costs of production. Why on earth should airlines not be held to similar standards? In the USA consumers are beguiled by $39 and other "promotional" airline fares, and they are enchanted by companies such as Wal-Mart that dump vast volumes of third-world merchandise on unthinking buyers. They then have to pay taxes to provide Wal-Mart employees with food stamps.

Airline competition should not be "war". It is good to hear that KRP is recovering. Pity about Cimber Sterling.

EUG (Eugene, Oregon):

2015: 909,121
2016: 984,175 (+8.2%, all-time record)

Kinda thought they might hit the one-million mark, but December was down 5% year-on-year, due to severe winter storms and fewer NCAA charter flights.

Finally got official 2016 numbers for MSY:
11,139,421 total - a 4.4% increase over 2015 and new airport record.
2015 had 10,673,301 passengers, itself a record at the time.

http://www.nola.com/business/index.ssf/2017/02/armstrong_airport_hits_all-tim.html#incart_2box

I expect 2017's growth to match if not beat 2016 with several new services already announced:
BA to LHR next month
DE to FRA in May
NK to CLE, BWI, and MCO in April
WN 1w service to PIT, IND, CMH, and 2w to RDU in March/April along with a second daily AUS flight
G4 just started RDU and CLE as well

Per PANYNJ website:

12 months thru Dec 2016, EWR (Newark, NJ) recorded 40.35 million revenue pax, an increase of 7.6% over Jan-Dec 2015. This consisted of 28.03 MM domestic pax (+9.1% y2y) and 12.32 MM international pax (+4.4% y2y).

Throw in 1.28 million non-revenue travellers and the grand total of passengers choosing to use KEWR is 41.63 MM. Wow! And some 2/3 of that total listed New Jersey, Pennsylvania or some other non-NYC destination / starting point.

Add to that AA, going nearly all mainline. That'll be a decent little capacity boost as well.

Not really. Only down about 3%.

Just that several similar gateways had growth that allowed them to surpass it, and not by much.
Looks bad on paper, but isn't nearly as bad IRL. Especially compared to previous years.

As far as EWR, JFK and LGA go Wihipedia reports ONLY revenue passengers, not TOTAL passengers as they claim. Non-revs are not counted.

DEN

58,266,515 million passengers in 2016 (up 7.9% on 2015).

Much of the increase is being attributed to people visiting Denver, rather than simply connecting. Either way, good news.

It's all in relative terms. 3% may not have been bad in 2009, but in 2016, when the average growth is >4%, then -3% is pretty bad. The largest drop for any top 50 airport in 2016. Of course, once oil prices go back up, IAH will pick up again. In relative terms, a fall in 14 places is quite significant IMO.

Significant to what though?

It's not as though they gain or lose anything based on such a ranking change.

Thanks! I love looking at this every year, and it's great to see MCO move 3 spots up to #40, surpassing SYD now.
