The world’s most connected cities

The world's most connected cities

We counted how many cities each city connects to outside of its country’s borders via a direct flight. Direct international flights are a reflection of the importance of the relationship between two locations. This measurement provides insights beyond mere passenger counts per airport; it is a proxy for real business activity and changes in consumer confidence using data about global transport routes.
