Air Transport


In recent years, there has been rapid increase in the use of air passenger and on high-value cargo transportation.


The high increase in the demand for air transportation imposes great challenges for maximizing the efficiency of aircraft (airside) operations as well as for managing the airport infrastructure, both in terms of internal passenger flows and for safeguarding efficient airport access.


This trend is expected to continue over the next years. Thus, a continuous reflection is necessary regarding the most appropriate models of exploitation and segmentation to ensure the full use of existing and/or future infrastructures.


Our team has a consolidated experience in project development for airports and air transportation, providing an integrated overview on the main issues to be considered regarding the air transport mode, analysing the most recent developments, as well as incorporating new medium and long-term perspectives and trends.
