About This Quiz

Not many people are surprised to learn that the busiest airport in the world, in terms of domestic and international passenger traffic, is in the United States, but many are surprised to learn that it's not in New York City or Los Angeles, but in Atlanta, GA instead. The populations of NYC and LA are eight and four million residents, respectively, compared to less than 500,000 in Atlanta, yet Atlanta's airport has been the busiest in the world for more than 20 years running. It's a behemoth, but once we start limiting records to international travel alone, it drops down the list and some pretty awesome airports arise.

Changi Airport, for instance, features a $1-billion complex that is open to anyone—ticket or not. Incheon Airport has its own golf course. Needless to say, there are some really awesome airports around the world. Here's a quiz to help you find out where they are. We'll give you the airport name, and you'll have to pick the country.
