CLT is the fifth most connected airport in the country for domestic services, according to OAG’s 2023 Megahubs index.
OAG, the leading data platform for the global travel industry, ranked airports with the highest ratio of possible scheduled connections to the number of destinations served by that airport.
The index also considered the total number of all possible connections between inbound and outbound flights at each airport within a three-hour window, where both flights are domestic services, to compose the data.
The top five airports for domestic connectivity, according to OAG, are:
- Chicago O’Hare International (ORD)
- Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta (ATL)
- Denver International (DEN)
- Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW)
- Charlotte Douglas International (CLT)
CLT, which offers 180 nonstop destinations worldwide, is the second largest hub for American Airlines, the world’s largest airline, which operates 86% of all flights at Charlotte Douglas.
