*transitive closure of a binary relation*R*on a set*X is the transitive relation*R*^{+}on set*X*such that RR^{+}contains*and*RX is a set of airports and^{+}is minimal (Lidl and Pilz 1998:337). If the binary relation itself is transitive, then the transitive closure is that same binary relation; otherwise, the transitive closure is a different relation. For example, if*x R y*means "there is a direct flight from airport*x*to airport*y*”, then the transitive closure of R*on*X is the relation*R*^{+}: "it is possible to fly from*x*to*y*in one or more flights."
