Notes: Ranking is based on 2008 data. The 2007 total, top 20 U.S. international airports is not the total of this table because some of the airports in the 2007 top 20 are not in the 2008 top 20, and thus are not shown here. The data cover all passengers arriving and departing from U.S. airports on nonstop commercial international flights with 60 seats or more.
