*ACI Europe Airport Connectivity (higher is better) is based on the SEO NetScan connectivity model, which measures airport connectivity in a more comprehensive way. It measures the number and quality of direct/non-stop connections as well as indirect connections via other airports. The NetScan model brings the most relevant connection components of every single market (frequency, travel time, connecting time) together into a single indicator: the Airport Connectivity Index. Find out more at www.aci-europe.org.
