Popis Air traffic in Central Europe is limited by the small area of national states and effective competition from other transport modes for short distances. Large countries with polycentric settlement structures tended to generate strong national air traffic. The long-term economic and geopolitical links among Germany, Switzerland, and Austria resulted in strong gravity forces for interconnecting air traffic flows among these countries, with the most intensive force manifesting among German cities. On the other hand, the interconnections within post-communist Central Europe were rather weak, with more air traffic oriented towards German-speaking countries. The contribution of this visualization lies not only in the identification of the most important air passenger routes in the area but also the policy implications. Many countries in the region are considering plans for HSR construction, such as Berlin–Prague–Vienna and Warsaw–Budapest. This visualization can help to identify demand potential that could be diverted from air to HSR.
