Abstract: The aviation sector is profitable, but sensitive to economic fluctuations,geopolitical constraints and governmental regulations. As for other means oftransportation, the relation between origin and destination results in acomplex map of routes, which can be complemented by information associated tothe routes themselves, for instance, frequency, traffic load or distance. Thetheory of networks provides a natural framework to investigate dynamics on theresulting structure. Here, we investigate the structure and evolution of theBrazilian Airport Network BAN for several quantities: routes, connections,passengers and cargo. Some structural features are in accordance with previousresults of other airport networks. The analysis of the evolution of the BANshows that its structure is dynamic, with changes in the relative relevance ofsome airports and routes. The results indicate that the connections converge tospecific routes. The network shrinks at the route level but grows in number ofpassengers and amount of cargo, which more than doubled during the periodstudied.
