“Sky Harbor ranked as the 10th largest megahub in the world, No. 8 in North America and No. 5 among airports with a cluster of flights from low-cost airlines like Southwest, according to a study by air-travel research firm OAG.
Megahubs are airports with the highest ratios of scheduled flight connections to the number of destinations served by the airport. The top three in the world, according to OAG: Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Chicago O’Hare and Dallas-Fort Worth International.
Sky Harbor is a major hub for two airlines, American/US Airways and Southwest. Both funnel passengers through Phoenix on their way to their final destinations.”
Why is this important to us? It means that our advertisers reach not only Phoenix destination flyers, but also hubbing passengers, who are often business travelers and higher demo/decision makers.
