In the statistics sections what does Airport: connections mean?



number of weekly connections out of a particular airport

connections as in weekly flights? does it include from/to flights

It cannot be weekly connections. Right now, in Tempelhof, LAX is the airport with most connections: ~15 million. But, 15*53 (weeks in a year) = 795 million! It's impossible! Even monthly it would be ridiculously high.

I don’t comprehend this stat too.

... and some airports with 50 or 100 departures offer more connections, than airports with more than 1000 departures 

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