An Analysis of Airfreight Transshipment Connectivity at Incheon International Airport/
Airline Networks
Issue Date
After the deregulation of the aviation market in the United States in 1978, airlines took advantage of the possibilities of the liberalized market and reorganized their networks. Then hub-and-spoke networks are used in aviation market generally. The use of the hub-and-spoke network makes it feasible to amplify flight networks. Thus, a number of airlines can move places more then before through the networks. The Center of hub-and-spoke networks is some hub-airport. Such hub-airports function as connection between origin and destination airport. In the most case of hub-airports, it should be accompanied with the transferring for passengers and/or transshipment for cargos. The purpose of this research is to investigate to evaluate the indirect connectivity of these networks at Incheon International Airport (ICN) as a hub-airport. In addressing these issues the task is to analyze the connectivity of flight schedules using a Wave-system structure and to estimate a connectivity index and the quality of that connectivity by employing the NETSCAN model. Then an evaluation is made of the discussion of these applied methodologies to meet this study’s key objective.
