These Are The 10 Most Internationally Connected Airports in The World

A recent report by OAG ranked the top 50 megahub airports in the world according to their connectivity. These are the top ten.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), commercial aircrafts will fly nearly four billion passengers just this year alone. This means that at any given point in time, there are thousands of flights crisscrossing the globe, flying in and out of airports.

Among the busiest megahub airports, a recent report has revealed which are the most connected. This list was compiled by an air intelligence company OAG in their Megahubs International Index 2017 which calculates the ratio of scheduled international connections to the number of destinations served by the airport. A total of 50 international airports were studied and ranked.
