This study employed the back-propagation neural network to forecast the air passenger demand from Egypt to Saudi Arabia. The factors that influence air passenger are identified, evaluated and analyzed by applying the back-propagation neural network on the annual data 2000 to 2010 by using visual gene developer package.
