O’Hare Tops Airport Rankings for Connections
O’Hare International Airport has been named the best-connected U.S. airport in the nation for 2018, and a leading international hub second only to London’s Heathrow. The annual report from OAG finds that O’Hare’s Connectivity Index Score of 479 puts it well ahead of major U.S. hubs in Atlanta, Los Angeles and New York for best flight connectivity.
“The City of Chicago is home to the most connected airport in the country, and one of the most connected airport systems in the world,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “No other U.S. city provides nonstop service to six major regions of the globe.”
OAG’s report attributes O’Hare’s top ranking to the number of connections possible relative to peak travel times. Jamie Rhee, the city’s aviation commissioner, said the coming expansion of O’Hare “will increase capacity as well as improving the connecting experience for travelers, bringing more economic opportunity to the City of Chicago.”
