So, now that you know which the are busiest airports in the world you may want to avoid them if people are not your thing. Our view? Usually because they handle so many passengers they are more efficient and faster places to get through.

The trends are very much pointing to the East however, with airports in Asia growing at a much faster rate as air travel spreads to the masses.

Ever wondered what it was like flying back in the 1960s? These pictures certainly tell of a very different time.,
