Air Cargo Competitiveness and European Airports: Markets and Strategy
For decades, air cargo was considered a by-product of passenger services in air transport. Both airlines and airports paid little attention to the air cargo segment. However, the declining yields in the passenger segment as well as the improved cargo payload capacity of new aircraft types, have resulted in air cargo becoming a logical way for airlines and airports to expand their portfolios. Therefore, most airlines and airports have nowadays created their own cargo strategies as both were looking for additional sources of revenue. This PhD has further investigated the competitiveness of European airports with respect to air cargo, and hence, which strategy an airport could apply to improve its competitive position in the market.
