Discussion: Air Transport's Role in Global Transportation

The economic role that aviation plays in countries’ economies varies greatly – some as high as 16% of GDP and some as low as 1% of GDP (in the U.S., it’s about 5% of GDP). For this discussion, you will select a European, Asian, or African country and research the impact that aviation plays in its economy (usually reported as a percent of the country’s GDP). Use what you have learned in the earlier activities to critically analyze that country’s transportation system and postulate reasons behind the role that aviation plays.

Your initial discussion post should be succinct (only about 200–300 words) and include references to your sources.

Preferably use Kenya airways.
