It’s entitled “Business on the move: How globalisation is changing the travel plans of European executives”, written by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The Design of a Large Scale Airline Network

world-airline-routes-map_5091826b7f654.jpgBy Rafael Bernardo Carmona Benítez

Fundamental changes in the air passenger transport system have occurred as a consequence of the government and customer requests for opening new services in new markets. Airlines have to analyze and decide what new routes to operate. First, countries and states with high increments of gross domestic product (GDP) are more attractive to open airline services (i.e. China, Brazil). Second, the level of deregulation at different countries allows airlines to find new routes and new networks to invest in other carriers or open services (i.e. Copa and Continental Airlines). Third, low fares, offered by low cost carrier’s (LCC’s), appear to be the main cause of the increase passenger flow worldwide [Carmona Benitez, 2012]. Fourth, the evolutions of the LCC’s have increased the possibilities of airports to increase their revenues and pax flow by opening more routes operated by LCC’s. Finally, points one to four will occur in many countries after their Civil Aviation Authorities eliminate restrictions on routes and fares giving the opportunities for airlines, airports, federal governments, states and investors from other countries to find new opportunities by identifying the right networks to serve.

brandenburg_airport_berlin_germany-300x159Berlin’s airport system is undergoing massive transformation – three airports are being merged into one. The new Berlin Brandenburg Airport BER “Willy Brandt,” blazoned as hub for the capital region, will replace the existing multi-airport system presumably in 2013. Thus, the spatial economic concept pursued by regional and local planning authorities supported by Berlin’s airport authority FBB aims at a strategically integrated axis from the new BER airport to Berlin’s inner city and its new main train station. But how can sustainable development in the airport vicinity be encouraged in terms of urban quality, connectivity, economic balance, green development and quality of life? The article will give an overview of the airport related development in Berlin Brandenburg and introduce the pilot project “fAIRleben – Sustainable development in close proximity to an infrastructure mega project”
