1The total for the top 50 airports in 2000 and 2009 will not sum from the individual airports because some top 50 airports in 2010 were not in the top 50 in the earlier years.

NOTES: Data for 2009 and 2010 are revised. Rank order by total enplaned passengers on large certificated U.S. air carriers (Majors, Nationals, Large Regionals, Medium Regionals, and Commuters), scheduled and nonscheduled operations, at all airports served within the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and other U.S. areas designated by the Federal Aviation Administration. These air carriers operate at least one aircraft with more than 60 seats or a payload capacity of more than 18,000 pounds. Data for small-certificated, commuter and foreign-flag air carriers are not included. Data differ from those in table 1-11 which include enplaned passengers on small-certificated, commuter and foreign-flag carriers.
