U.S. STATES WITH THE MOST PUBLIC AIRPORTS PER CAPITA
Last week, we looked at U.S. states with the most
public airports per square mile and found that airport density was
closely aligned with population density. So, this week we are looking at
airports per million people. Using this way of viewing airports, it is
the less densely populated states that rank high. Perhaps, in a future
list, we can use some combination of population and land area relative
to the number of public airports to see where airports are more "popular."
Not surprisingly, with Alaska having more airports than any other state
and one of the lowest populations, it ranks an overwhelming #1 in this list.
New Jersey, which is the densest state in the nation, ranks last among
airports per capita. The Plains states rank high relative to their
2. North Dakota
4. South Dakota
PER MILLION PEOPLE
