Size of the ten largest airports worldwide in 2015, in hectares

This statistic shows the size of the world's largest airports, as of 2015. Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris covered an area of 3,200 hectares, ranking it in fifth place in terms of land mass, however when considering the passenger volumes of airports worldwide, CDG fell somewhat lower down the list. Saudi Arabia's King Fahr International airport covered by far the largest land area, ten times the size of the third biggest Airport in the ranking, Dallas/Fort Worth International in the USA. The remaining nine airports from this ranking combined do not cover an area as big as the King Fahr International airport in Saudi Arabia does.
