The Top 200 Airports on Twitter

Revised November 28, 2017

Airports are much more than just departure and return points for business trips. They are where we welcome home our sports teams after a championship win. They’re where we meet and greet friends and family members we haven’t seen in weeks—or months, or even years—when they visit. The inside of an airport often creates our first impression of a city or country we’ve never been to before.

Top airports on TwitterTragically, though, they also have been targeted by terrorists seeking to cause disruption and destruction. We’re heartened by news of alert airport security thwarting a would-be terrorist plot, breathing a small sigh of relief even as we’re reminded to remain ever vigilant.

As developers of advanced scanning technology to detect explosives hidden in personal electronic devices and bottled liquids, we at One Resonance Sensors are focused on helping airports keep flyers safe. We also celebrate the positive mission of airports: to be welcoming, engaging, and efficient transportation hubs.

There are many ways to rank airports. There are the best airports in the world as tallied by flyers from around the globe. There are the busiest airports in the world.

But a core function of every airport is communication about issues affecting travelers, in the immediate and longer term. And a key channel for such communication is Twitter. So here are the top 201 airports on Twitter as of late 2017. Interestingly, five of the 10 most popular airports on Twitter are in the U.K.; just one (LAX) is in the U.S..

Australia – 8 Finland – 1 Ireland – 2 Mexico – 3 Saudi Arabia – 3 Thailand – 2
Bahamas – 1 France – 5 Italy – 2 New Zealand – 3 Singapore – 1 The Netherlands – 1
Bahrain – 1 Germany – 4 Jamaica – 2 Norway – 1 South Korea – 1 Turkey – 1
Belgium – 2 Hong Kong – 1 Jordan – 1 Philippines – 1 Sweden – 1 UAE – 2
Canada – 16 India – 1 Latvia – 1 Poland – 5 Switzerland – 1 UK – 18
Denmark – 1 Indonesia – 1 Malaysia – 1 Qatar – 1 Taiwan – 1 USA – 101

All Twitter follower counts are as of November 2017.
