Designing And Operating An Airport City, Or Aerotropolis: Case Study On Developing Airport Activity

  • On June 10, 2017

The discussion will address the evolution and development of the airport city and the ‘aerotropolis’ examining the various success factors:

  • What role do the public and private sectors typically play?
  • Where do they go from here?
    • Can any airport develop one; or
    • Are they restricted to an elite ‘Premier League’ where metropolitan size, scope and location are the deciding factors?
  • Does the presence of an airport city become the main driver of passenger and freight growth?
  • If so, should the airport city dominate the airport management’s strategic thinking?
  • Are there negative socio-economic impacts, such as the loss of green belt land displacement and exclusion of communities and creation of economic enclaves?
