Airport departures and capacity

Small airports across country, such as Long Island MacArthur in Islip, are seeing a loss of commercial service. Here is data from MIT's International Center for Air Transportation showing the change in departures and seat capacity from 2012 to 2013. This list begins with small hub airports, where MacArthur ranks 21st for the percentage of lost departures, and includes large and medium hubs, as well as smaller airports that are not hubs. You can re-sort the table below by clicking on the label of the column you want to sort by.

The red dots on the map indicate airports that saw a decline of 10 percent or more in departures. The purple dots are airports with a decline of less than 10 percent, and the green dots are airports that had a gain or were even. A handful of airports that lacked data are not on the map but are in the table below. Here's the story.
