Connectivity in Air Transport Networks: an Assessment of the Polish Aviation Market
Companies connected with air transport operate within a competitive envi- ronment and are, therefore, compelled to adjust their strategy in order to increase their competitiveness. One of the elements which has an effect on the level of competitiveness is accessibility, which is itself studied on different planes. Var- ious approaches to the issue of accessibility may be found in aviation literature. Accessibility of region, accessibility of air transport, and temporal accessibility are amongst those distinguished. Analysis of the above mentioned factors is of par- ticular importance with regards to launching new air links. The aim of this article is to discuss the issue of connectivity with regards to chosen Polish airports, taking into account the available network of connections with transit airports. Research discussed in this article may serve as grounds for a further complex study based on the use of advanced econometric methods for air traffic simulation. (original abstract)
