In the framework of the Interreg Central Europe project LAirA (Landside Airport Accessibility), MEP Maria Grapini and the Airport Regions Conference are delighted to invite you to a light lunch meeting on the topic of airport access.

The meeting will take place on 25 September 2018, at the European Parliament, Altiero Spinelli building, room A3G3, between 12:30 and 14:00.

Airports are assets and transnational transport gateways for citizens. Improving surface access to airports is a crucial aspect on handling expected air traffic growth that will put much pressure on Europe’s airports and the transport network that links the airports with the city centres and their hinterland.

LAirA project addresses the multimodal, smart and low carbon mobility integration of airports in the mobility systems of urban areas. The project focuses in particular on building capacities of local and regional authorities and airports, to jointly plan and implement low carbon mobility solutions in a transnational and comprehensive approach.

This meeting will bring together leading stakeholders from the European research community, and also European policy-makers, local and regional authorities, airports and infrastructure providers. It will be a unique opportunity to exchange best practice and contribute together to a cleaner and more innovative mobility system. We hope you could join us on that occasion.
