Development of Airport Regions: Varieties of Institutions in Schiphol and Frankfurt

By Michel van Wijk

1-ehameddfIn the era of globalization, airports are rapidly developing as new economic centers of the cityregion. Despite internationally comparative economic trends and the challenge of urban planning this brings along, the institutional conditions for the actors involved remain rather local. Development agencies are set up for spatial-economic development of the airport region. A closer look at regional development agencies in the cases of Amsterdam (Schiphol Area Development Company) and Frankfurt (Rhein-Main Verkehrsverbund) illustrates great varieties in institutional systems, and in their impact on planning. Both celebrated their anniversaries recently. What have been the results so far, and how can each learn from the other in order to integrate infrastructure and land supply in planning in the context of changing governance structures in finding a balance between exploiting and protecting the airport area?

Cancellations and their Relationship to and Impact on Airline Service Quality

By Dr. Blaise P. Waguespack and Dr. Dawna L. Rhoades

cancelled_flightsThis paper is the first attempt by the authors of the ‘Service Disquality Index’ to relate cancellations to the index, and to model the impact of cancellations on overall airline service quality. Cancellations as reported in the Air Travel Consumer Report are compared and correlated to the SDI. Additionally, the impact of cancellations are added into the SDI and examined to measure the possible impact of cancellations on redistributing the ranking of airlines in the index. The inclusion of cancellations does not impact the ranking of the airlines using the SDI, but does support the inclusion of cancellations in the SDI going forward as a true measure of airline service disquality.

It is because; the civil aviation industry is not a normal business industry by any means rather it is a highly politicised industry which involves state sovereignty, national security and high level of diplomacy.

Strategic management in aviation – Critical Essays by Thomas C. Lawton

Strategic aviation management is contested terrain, fought over by academics from several disciplines and populated by ‘gurus’ peddling the latest ‘quick fix’. Lawton has adopted the most popular; some would argue the most practical, of available perspectives on the field for use as a framework within which to bring together 28 previously published articles
