Which private jet airports are most popular in the USA?

In the United States there are over 4,000 potential airports accessible to private aviation users. Ten times more than those used by commercial airline schedules.

But some are more popular than others of course. With the busiest of all those serving major cities, attracting large numbers of business and leisure travellers every month.

Many major cities offer dedicated business aviation airports, as an alternative to international airline hubs. These tend to be the better choice for many private jet customers, faster to move in and out of. And smaller airports can be closer to home or to the ultimate destination, reducing ground transfer times.

Here are the most popular private jet airports in the US:
