These are lists of the busiest airports in the United States.

Busiest US airports by total passenger boardings[edit]

The FAA uses passenger boarding for a full calendar year to determine AIP entitlements. The term hub is used by the FAA to identify very busy commercial service airports. For instance, large hubs are those airports that each account for at least one percent of total U.S. passenger enplanements. Medium hubs are defined as airports that each account for between 0.25 percent and one percent of the total passenger enplanements.

In Calendar year 2013 (preliminary FAA data) there were 30 Large Hubs and 33 Medium Hubs.
