Passenger air traffic grew by 6.8 per cent worldwide in 2015, the UN’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) 2015 Air Transport Yearly Monitor has revealed.

The preliminary version of the study, released Thursday by the agency, also shows that planet’s top three busiest airports by numbers of passengers are Atlanta (ATL), Beijing (PEK), and Dubai (DXB), in that order.

The top three airlines by revenue-passenger kilometers are all based in the United States, with American Airlines topping the chart. Emirates, which has experienced a growth of 8.8 percent, has overtaken Air France to claim fourth place.
