Chicago O’Hare ranked ‘most connected airport in US’ for third straight year

Today, OAG, the global leader in flight information, released its Megahubs U.S. Index 2018, revealing the top 25 most connected airports in the U.S. for domestic services.

Complimenting the Megahubs International Index 2018, the U.S. edition takes account of the unique nature of the U.S. aviation market, focusing on domestic connectivity.

Chicago O’Hare (ORD) is once again the most connected airport in domestic connectivity, topping the second-place finisher – Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL) – by 83 points.

Despite finishing first in 2017, O’Hare continued to add destinations in 2018, and increased its Connectivity Index (CI) by 24 points this year.

“Legacy carriers – American, Delta and United – dominated market share at the top 10 U.S. megahubs this year,” said John Grant, senior analyst of OAG.

“Looking for every competitive advantage possible, airlines continue to push the boundaries on connectivity for their customers – and today, that requires a strong megahub presence.”
