# Statistics Queustion

Hello to all,

can anyone help me understand the neanig of Airport Connections? On Statistics page.

I try wiki but tge link is blank.

It´s the amount of people passing through it. Pretty mislabelled.

OMG.

That's one of question I would like to ask since looong time ago but never manage to do it.

It is indeed mislabeled.

Sorry but i still not get it.

When an airport is rated no1 and another no10 means what?

The airport ranked no1 has much more traffic than no10? This is for pax and/or also for cargo units?

And to put everything together, if no1 airport is the positive rank, how you can improve you base airport rank?

Airport connections: gives you an indication how many connections are arriving and departing from that particular airport. No.1 has the most possibilites to travel, No10 is rank No10 and so on. It does not mean that there is more demand but offering more connections than on other airports. regardless of the size of the airport.

I believe here that the system maybe performing some wrong calculations, in case airport rank is additional value in ORS.

As connection calculate if I have 100 flights on same destination apart from 100 flights to deferent destinations?

I believe the meaning of hub is the second situation.

Second situation may also lead to avoid “slot blocking”.

I put “” since there are routes you can fly 100 flights a day and offering profit. You cannot blame for slot blocking.

But offering benefit on different connections may be a reason to avoid the above.

I thought it was it but it's NOT!

I found this post of Martin on an older topic, and I completely got it! It is the number of connections in terms of city pairs, not number of passengers going through it (as I thought it was in the beginning):

That number represents the amount of flight combinations that has been generated during the previous run of the ORS for the respective airport.

Me, I have never understood what that page in statistics means. For example, there's an airport which had no flights to/from it for a year, it has no stations, but still, it is on an Airport Connections statistics page and has even a number (number of connections or whatever it is)

Ground connections.

Oh, now it makes sense. Thanks

So for a no flight airport, there is still some city pairs via it? Two ground connections? This will create negative ors rate.

Is this only counts A-V-B for V? Or it simply counts how many times an airport shows, no matter as origin, via or dest?
