Since 2005, the ACI-NA Benchmarking Survey has attracted airports from both US and Canada, and in 2013 participation grew to 96 airports (90% of large hub airports and 82% of medium hub airports). We greatly value the participation of all hub sizes ranging from large hub to non-hub airports. This survey is ACI-NA's largest annual data gathering effort and is deemed essential by most member airports.
