Istanbul's Ataturk airport overtook Frankfurt to enter the European top three for the first time in 2015 as Turkish Airlines continued its rapid expansion and strikes at Deutsche Lufthansa AG hurt the German hub. London Heathrow, the main base for British Airways, remains Europe's busiest airport, even as it struggles to add flights on runways that are effectively full, while Paris Charles de Gaulle, ranked second, suffered two months of falling numbers for the first time in almost two years after November's terror attacks.Istanbul Ataturk has now added more than 16 million passengers in three years, compared with less than 4 million at Frankfurt.
