Description :
This paper introduces and demonstrates a new programme, AIRNET, which processes airline traffic data from the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics to produce networks among US cities and airports. First, AIRNET produces four types of network—route, origin–destination, business and leisure—that can be used to explore distinct research questions and which can be customised using adjustable parameters that alter how the network is created. Secondly, it can produce each of these networks at multiple time points beginning in 1993, thereby providing researchers access to one of the only sources of longitudinal, dynamic intercity networks.
