East African Air Transport Connectivity 2023

Below is a summary of the air transport connectivity between 10 countries in the East African Region.

This is part of my series #AirConnectivityAfrica where I intend to map out air connectivity in different Geo-regions and ultimately the whole continent with the aim of shedding light on how connected cities are in Africa in light of trade, tourism and travel. Most importantly, it is also to shed light on the missing links between these cities.

Using data collected from airline booking engines, airports and tracking sites, I analyzed airlines and airports in East Africa with scheduled operations and below are some insights to digest:

💡 There are 994 scheduled flights operating across 84 routes.
💡 ET has direct flights to 17 different destinations across all the countries in focus.
💡 The Average ticket price for a One-Way flight is US$234
💡 The Busiest route is NBO – EBB with 44 flights.
