Description :
This paper draws on a rich data source that provides longitudinal airline booking data, which can be directly linked up to the evolution of inter-urban networks at the African and global scale. Results indicate that Johannesburg remains the major gateway to Africa, but other regional centres, in particular Cairo, Lagos, Casablanca and Nairobi are rapidly complementing Johannesburg in this role. Although rapid network growth on the African continent is evident it is outrun by that with non-African connections, notably Asia and the Middle East. - (AJC)
