Chicago O’Hare Replaces London Heathrow As No. 1 Most Connected Airport
OAG, the world’s leading data platform for the global travel industry, today released Megahubs 2022, the Top 50 most internationally connected airports in the world. Last updated in 2019, Megahubs provides fresh insight into how ongoing travel disruptions are affecting global connectivity.
While London Heathrow (LHR) maintained its first-place ranking among European hubs, its global ranking dropped from #1 in 2019 to #22 this year. Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and Frankfurt Airport (FRA) experienced similar drops, falling out of the top 10 to #27 and #30.
U.S. airports dominated the global Megahubs, with Chicago O’Hare (ORD; #1), Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW; #2) and Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL; #3) finishing as the top three most connected airports in the world. Mexico City Juarez International Airport (MEX) is the highest ranked non-U.S. Megahub ranking #8, up 7 spots from its #15 ranking in 2019.
“The global market has yet to fully recover post-pandemic. While the U.S. currently dominates due to its strong domestic market, we could see Europe and other global hubs catch up in the next 12 months as the industry works towards a full recovery,” said John Grant, chief analyst at OAG.
The most connected Megahub in Asia Pacific is Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) as Hong Kong International Airport dropped out of the Top 50. Mumbai International Airport (BOM) ranked #6 in Asia Pacific as Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) dropped to #12.
