Abstract

This chapter reviews the construction of the Connectivity Utility Model (ConnUM) that measures an airport, a city, or a country’s transport connectivity. A simple measure accounting for direct air connections is first discussed, followed by an indirect air connectivity measure that considers indirect connections, and an extended multi-modal ConnUM that considers a transport network formed by multiple transport modes. We then use the model to show how China connects the world, i.e., foreign countries’ direct and overall air connectivity with China. It appears that there is a strong link between air connectivity, and international trade and tourism. This chapter has also demonstrated the usefulness of the ConnUM in conducting the vulnerability analysis of a country’s transport network.
