We’re #3! Way to go!…?

Researchers list top 10 airports for spreading disease

While John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Los Angeles International Airport were first and second on the list, respectively, Honolulu International Airport ranked third, even though it carries only 30% as much traffic as Kennedy.

The researchers said that’s because of Honolulu’s place in the air transportation network: in the Pacific Ocean, with many connections to distant, large, and well-connected hubs.

Following Kennedy, Los Angeles and Honolulu on the list are San Francisco International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport. Atlanta, Miami International Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport round out the top 10.
