The Federal Aviation Administration has crowned a new airport as the nation’s busiest in terms of takeoffs and landings.
The FAA said Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport finished 2005 with 980,197 takeoffs and landings, while Chicago O’Hare International Airport ended the year second with 972,246.
The Atlanta airport for the last several years has been the busiest airport in terms of passengers. FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said today that full-year numbers in that category are not yet available for 2005.
Now finish the damn runway and extend your lead.
