Air Transport and Regional Development Methodologies
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after December 27, 2020
Based on the comprehensive results of a four-year European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action called Air Transport and Regional Development (ATARD), Air Transport and Regional Development Methodologies promotes a better understanding of how the air transport related problems of core regions and remote regions should be addressed to enhance both economic competitiveness and social cohesion in Europe.
This book discusses key methodological approaches to assessing air transport and regional development, outlining their respective strengths and weaknesses. These include input-output analysis, cost benefit analysis, computable general equilibrium models, data envelopment analysis, stochastic frontier analysis, discrete choice models and game theory.
Air Transport and Regional Development Methodologies will be of interest to several large groups. Firstly, it will serve as an authoritative and comprehensive reference for academics, researchers and consultants. Secondly, it will advise policy-makers and government organizations at European, national and regional levels. Thirdly, it presents invaluable insights to transport companies such as airports and airline operators.

Anne Graham is Professor of Air Transport and Tourism Management at the University of Westminster, UK. She has two main research areas, firstly airport management, economics and regulation, and secondly the relationship between the tourism and aviation sectors.
Nicole Adler is Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Her work applies formulations in the field of applied game theory, location and productivity to answer questions mostly from a regulatory perspective. Public policy cost-benefit analysis applications have been applied to developing countries, traffic police, airlines, airports, high-speed rail and large scale investment projects.
Ofelia Betancor is Professor and Head of the Department of Applied Economic Analysis at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. She is a member of the research Group Economic of Infrastructure and Transport (EIT). Her specialist research areas are transport economics, economic evaluation of transport projects and economic regulation in transport.
Volodymyr Bilotkach is Senior Lecturer in Economics at Newcastle University, UK. His research interests cover various issues in economics of the aviation sector including airline alliances and mergers, airport regulation and the economics of distribution of airline tickets.
Enrique J. Calderón is Professor and Head of the Cátedra de Planificación y Acción Territorial at the Department of Regional, Urban and Environmental Planning in the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Spain. He specializes in urban, regional and environmental issues at all levels (notably environmental subsidies), sustainability assessment, and the integration of environmental concerns into government policies and programmes.
Hans-Martin Niemeier is Professor of Transportation Economics and Logistics at the Bremen University of Applied Science, Germany. He is Chair of the German Aviation Research Society. Much of his research focuses on airport regulation and management.
Gianmaria Martini is Professor of Economics and Head of the Department of Economics and Technology Management at the University of Bergamo, Italy. Much of his recent research focuses on methods to estimate technical and economic efficiency in the air transport sector.
António Pais Antunes is Professor at the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Initially, his main research area was facility location but, progressively, he has extended his interests to transport planning and, more recently, to land-use/transport planning. He also acts as Director of CIEC Civil Engineering Research Center, an R&D unit of the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology.
