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 population density.
