    • Abstract

       

      Transportation infrastructure plays a vital role in the development of a country’s economy and is regarded as one of the most important indicators of its economic growth. In this study, we analyse the Airport Network of Pakistan (ANP), which represents Pakistan’s domestic civil aviation infrastructure, as a weighted complex network. We find that ANP is a small-world network and is disassortative in nature. We further analyse the dynamic properties of the network and compare them to their topological counterparts. Although small in size, the ANP does show similar properties as compared to the US, China and especially the Indian airport network.
