Memphis International

Daniel Betts

No 2. Memphis International (MEM)

Score: 0.59 (rounded from .588)

Runway Incidents (2006–2010): 10

Safety Innovations: The FAA is building a state-of-the-art, $61.5 million control tower and an expanded terminal radar approach control at MEM. Memphis boasts an outstanding safety record, especially considering that it's been the world's busiest cargo airport for most of the last 20 years, and it shares runways with the Tennessee Air National Guard.
