Focus of research is to examine how both systems, air traffic and airports, evolve with time under certain conditions and how a desired status for either one can be achieved. To find answers to these questions, it is necessary
The goal of air transport research is the development of longterm strategies and measures aiming at changes in infrastructure or new regulations for the air transport system as a whole.
Airport research aims at developing measures for airport management that efficiently integrate passenger movement into landside and airside processes thus fostering efficient intermodal transport.
Airport research focuses on the implementation of the ACARE goals to improve traffic flow at airports. The main focus here is on landside airport management and airport simulation.
The following core themes are considered:
Air transport research investigates the possible future developments of air transport and analyses its capabilities and impacts. The main focus here is on the development of an environmental friendly air traffic system and air traffic economy. The following core themes are considered:
