* Data based on the world's top 50 megahubs' connectivity index. According to the source, the connectivity index is calculated as the ratio of possible scheduled connections between flights arriving and flights departing to the number of destinations served by the airport within a six-hour window in the busiest day of the year.
Both online and interline connections are included (i.e. legacy and low-cost scheduled airlines)
