ARC: a platform of excellence in knowledge sharing
ARC not only aims at exchanging information and sharing knowledge but also at gaining new insights in the airport planning process to support decision making. ARC is frequently producing studies and special reports on current and burning subjects, often as result of the work in the different project groups.
For further information on any ARC publication, feel free to contact the ARC Secretariat at email@example.com.

LAirA addresses the specific and significant challenge of the multimodal, smart and low carbon mobility integration of airports in the mobility systems of Functional Urban Areas (FUAs) of Central Europe (CE). Airports are key assets of CE FUAs and important transnational transport gateways for CE citizens. The magnitude and growing trend of air traffic (on average 10% per year in the EU) requires actions for the improved and sustainable landside accessibility of FUAs to airports.
The following proceedings are published after a fruitful event at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium on 6 March 2018 during which the ANIMA project was officially launched and presented to the outer world. This successful event was hosted by Finnish Member of the European Parliament (MEP), Mrs Merja Kyllönen (GUE/NGL).
Improving surface access to airports is a crucial aspect of handling expected air traffic growth that will put much pressure on Europe’s airports and the transport network that links the airports with city centres and their hinterland. It became clear that including the grievances of residents living nearby gateways is key. Combining an improved public acceptance with seamless travel and a good passenger experience will most definitely contribute to the preservation of the wider European integration project.
We increased our visibility by organising and attending several successful events, conferences and high-level meetings at the European institutions that attracted attention from key stakeholders in the European aviation scene. In the past year, our secretariat gained in capacity and we delivered a lot by letting our voice being heard in order to be included in Brussels’ positions. Our commitment confirmed once more our important position as an influencer in the European policy-making process.
This paper was issued in the light of an event on air transport connectivity organised by ARC and hosted by Estonian Member of European Parliament (MEP) Urmas Paet on 5 December 2017 in the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium.
Supporting the reduction of ultra-fine particles (UFPs) to the minimum is crucial to preserve a comfortable and healthy lifestyle for residents living in airport regions. Airport Regions Conference is the best-placed organisation to ensure sustainable future aviation policy that keeps these concerns in mind. We would be happy to see our contributed expertise and feedback being translated into additional tools to improve quality of life for our citizens.
Check out the latest achievements of the Airport Regions Conference: new members, new European projects, new communication strategy. We are proud to say that 2016 was a year of growth!
This study aims to deepen understanding of the air cargo industry. The main aspects discussed in this study are: how air cargo works and who are the main players; the main issues and trends air cargo has to face; the way air cargo impacts territories and local communities.
Take a look back at our achievements in 2015, amongst which we remark that great progress on noise regulation has been made and another EU project has been finalised.
This report presents the outcomes of the ARC Annual General Meeting, which took place in June 2015, in the Oslo – Akershus region. It was published in January 2016 and covers different environmental aspects, such as transportation challenges, air pollution, climate change and more.
