Air Transport Provision in

Edited by George Williams and Svei


The first book to focus solely on this issue,
it stems from a series of biennial conferences
devoted air-transport provision in remoter
regions, organized by the Centre for Air
Transport in Remoter Regions at Cranfield
University. The primary aim of the conferences
has been to provide an opportunity for
those responsible for operating, managing,
regulating and financing air transport services
and associated infrastructure in these areas
to be informed of the latest best-practice
initiatives, to contrast different policy
approaches and to debate potential solutions
to perennial problems.
Remoter regions has been a neglected area
of air transport, as much of the focus of public
and media attention is on the larger airlines,
airports and aircraft. While the number of
large airports in the world is in the hundreds,
there are many thousands of smaller airports
providing communities all over the globe
with vital air links. More often than not these
services and the airports to which they are
operated are loss making and require subsidies
to sustain them. There are therefore many more
interested parties involved in both providing
and deciding issues relating to the provision of
air transport in these situations, most especially
central, regional and local governments who
are charged with financing these activities.
If you count yourself among those with an
active involvement or interest in this subject
you cannot do without this book.
