Jan Brueckner, a professor of economics at the University of California, Irvine, says the team’s new metric for air transport connectivity improves on existing models, as it uses 20 years’ worth of data to track all possible trips out of a given city, and also measures the “value” of each destination. “No researchers have produced such a comprehensive index spanning a large range of years,” says Brueckner, who was not involved in the research.
