Analysis of Centrality Measures of Airport Network of India
In this paper we analyze the topological properties of airport network of India (ANI) using graph theoretic approach. We show that such an analysis can be useful not only in planning the infrastructure and growth of the air-traffic connectivity, but also in managing the flow of transportation during emergencies such as accidental failure of the airport, close down of the airport due to unexpected climate changes, terrorist attacks, etc. Knowledge of the connectivity pattern and load on various routes can also help in making judicious decisions for reduction of flights to contain the spread of the infectious disease.
