Abstract

The purpose of this study is to figure out how international commercial aviation reacts to different states of conflict. Multiple conflicts have occurred throughout the last 20-30 years that have had an impact on commercial aviation connectivity. The question is how commercial aviation has been affected as far as comparing volume of flights, number of airports operating, and other factors. This data will be gathered using the ICAO+ database alongside the WASA database. There will be three phases in this research, looking at pre conflict, during conflict, and post conflict data to draw conclusions about the state of airline connectivity at each of these points. Another point of emphasis is to compare how aviation agreements facilitate the initial impact and resurgence of international commercial aviation in the long run, in so far as how fast commercial aviation was able to come back post conflict and if there is a significant difference between countries that have an open skies agreement and ones that do not.
