The world's eminent airports are directly or indirectly connected to many other airports. Every airport is considered as a node and the route can be considered as edge connecting them. The work analyzes the USA airport network using different centrality measures of social network analysis. The centrality measures calculated on airport network help in identification of certain characteristics of the airports. Some of the characteristics are like the busiest airport and the airports which influence trade, alternate path, fastest route, nearest airports, etc. The characteristics helps to find the designated airports meant for improving the economy. The results of this paper say about the prominent communication and connections among the airports in the U.S.A. The tools used for the analysis are UCINET 6 and NetDraw. © 2018 Saleena. P et. al.
