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 info@airportregions.org.

The Impact of Middle Eastern Air Carriers on European Hub

July 2012

This study aims at updating Europe’s local and regional governments on a new phenomenon: the competitive impact of air carriers based in the Arabian Gulf. The competition between airlines and their respective market shares may seem a purely economic concern but it is not. The consequences will be felt in regions seeking new destinations from their key airports and will be equally strong for regions that are home to European flag carriers.

Too much is still subsumed under the term “airport” and only means an airport’s core business, air traffic. The potential to see airports in a more differentiated way, including the roles they can play in networks, and their effects on development opportunities, remains unused.
