Air Transport Policy and PlanningUniversity of Westminster
Air Transport Policy and Planning
Airports increasingly present a major infrastructure constraint to meeting the demand for air travel. Expansion of air services often conflicts with other government policy objectives and is becoming a highly contentious topic. Meanwhile, the regulatory framework for air transport continues to evolve. This seminar aims to address a number of key issues of interest to airport and airline planners and managers and those formulating air transport policy.
Measures to expand airport capacity will be considered in relation to both terminals and runways and the interaction with surface transport. Economic and environmental issues will be interpreted. The implications of airline strategies for airports will be addressed, with particular reference to changing patterns of passenger demand and airline operations. Methods for improving the efficiency of operations will be evaluated, including research needs in forecasting and marketing. Government policy in the UK and other countries will be discussed.
