It should come as no surprise to anyone who's ever flown into Beijing that the city's Capital International Airport is one busy place. If fact, it's the second busiest airport in the world, handling nearly 90 million passengers in 2015.

The label of world's busiest airport again went to the United States' Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, which processed more than 100 million passengers in 2915, according to a CNN article based on traffic data from the Airport Council International.

No. 8 on the list is Hong Kong International Airport with 68 million passengers. Hong Kong also was named the world's busiest cargo airport. Shanghai was the third busiest cargo airport in the world in 2015.
