Traffic at the airport was up 1.9 percent between 2013 and 2014. Beijing (PEK), which comes in at second place with 86 million passengers, saw growth of 2.9 percent over the same period, compared to its previous years of double-digit growth.
"Passenger traffic remained resilient in the face of the global uncertainties that beleaguered many economies in 2013 and 2014," said Angela Gittens, the organization's director, in a press release.
