Bonus List

U.S. STATES WITH THE MOST PUBLIC AIRPORTS PER SQUARE MILE


Airport density is closely aligned with population density; where there are more people, there are more airports. Of the ten states with the most public airports (places where general aviators can land) per square mile, nine are in the top ten states for population density (Indiana is the exception; it is #16 in population density). In fact, the top two states in this list are the two most densely populated states.

While Alaska has more airports (417) than any other state, it also has (overwhelmingly) more land area than any other state (and therefore ranks #47 in airports per square mile, with only Wyoming (#50), New Mexico (#49) and Utah (#48), all low-population-density states, ranking lower).
