Istanbul International Airport was the busiest in 2020, Bloomberg reports. Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport holds second place on the list, followed by Heathrow Airport in London. The top five also included Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Sheremetyevo - A.S. Pushkin international airport.
According to Bloomberg, Heathrow moved from first place to third as passenger traffic fell by 73 percent in 2020. If in 2019 almost 81 million people used the services of this airport, in the previous year, it was only 22.1 million, which was caused by a coronavirus pandemic. The airport was also negatively affected by the new strain of COVID-19 in the UK.
