Understanding the role of air transportation structure increases the economic and social assets in local and global scale. Identifying that role is required for an effective air transportation management, as well. Different methods are used to visualize, analyze network structures and to better understand complex network features of the air transportation. This study presents social network analysis as a method to extract information about the network through a pattern of individuals and communities. In a general manner, network analysis identifies mapping, measuring and analyzing the connections and interactions in social relationships. The network structure consists of airports as nodes and flight routes as edges within the scope of the analysis. We consolidated 38 airports and 280 routes for the year of 2014 in intercity transport in Turkey. The results indicate one of the airports, which will be terminated soon, as a dominate national 48 node in the current calendar. Also, the same analysis results indicate that using main hubs to transport between low traffic airports are nearly mandatory because of the geopolitical situation of the country.

New airports and their impact on mobility and air traffic : an analysis of Sabiha Gökçen international airport
İlhan, Burhan; Babalık, Ela; Department of City and Regional Planning (2006)
In the process of globalization, air transportation plays an important role for the development of regional and national economy. There has been considerably increasing demand for air transportation and will continue in the foreseeable future. In this respect this research demonstrates a case study of Sabiha Gökçen International Airport, the second and recently built airport of İstanbul, and its relation with the region. The main aim of this study is to understand the initial transportation benefits of the ...
Critical success factors for build operate transfer (BOT) projects: lessons learned from airport projects
Kashef, Mohammad; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
BOT model is widely used in developing countries to facilitate the construction of immediately needed infrastructure projects with both technical and financial risks being borne by the private sector. BOT model differs from traditional ones because of its financial structure and operation service that is included in the concession. The aim of this research is to identify the critical success factors (CSFs) for BOT projects by examining real BOT projects, mainly airport projects. In this research, a detailed...
Evaluation of Condition States of Bridge Elements Based on the Intensity of Different Damage Types
Akgül, Ferhat (2012-10-19)
Transportation infrastructure facilities are the essential components for the continuous development of the economics and community well-being of any country. Maintaining such facilities at all times is a difficult task for service authorities. To assist in conducting such a task, bridge management systems (BMSs) have been developed for effective asset management. This paper presents a novel technique for evaluation of condition states of elements based on the intensity of different damage types. Damages of...
Analysis of public use bicycle systems from a product-service system perspective
Keskin, Duygu; Börekçi, Naz Ayşe Güzide Z.; Department of Industrial Design (2006)
Recent studies on sustainability indicate that the concept of the Product-Service System (PSS) is a promising approach to dematerialise the economy and reduce the environmental impacts of industrial activity. Considering the urban scale, mobility is one of the challenges that should be addressed and improved for a better quality of life for residents and lower pollution levels for the environment. In this respect, this study aims at analysing Public Use Bicycle (PUB) systems from a PSS perspective. Six PUB ...
Increasing role of services in competitive power and innovativeness of firms and industrial clusters
Eraydın, Ayda (2007-01-01)
The aim of this paper is to discuss the importance of different types of global services for industrial firms and clusters in terms of their economic competitiveness and innovative performance. The theoretical debates argue that globalization, deregulation and the new production organization make it necessary to use global services that are supplied easily with the help of new telecommunication technologies. The existing empirical studies provide some supporting evidence. However, they also indicate that gl...
