Aviation Report 2011 is published
DLR’s Aviation Report provides information on the latest developments in the German, European and global air traffic. It is published annually since 2004. On the basis of comprehensive data material from official statistics, surveys and aviation industry, available to the Institute of Air Transport and Airport Research, basic indicators on the structure and developments in the air transport sector are being gathered and processed. Although the focus here is on the air traffic of Germany, due to its international integration, the European and global air traffic with its volumes and changes is described, too. Also this year, the Report follows the already established structure. First, traffic flows in the domestic and cross-border air transport are described, followed by the presentation of developments of airlines and air traffic at German airports and aviation developments in Europe and worldwide. In two articles, the reader is informed on the one hand about business aviation at airports and airfields in Germany and, on the other, about the volume and structure of air freight in Germany. Finally, in a feature article the DLR air freight model is described by which an operational and expandable model tool is being developed for the analysis and forecasts of German and global air cargo events. Thus, beyond the original task of the air traffic report - commenting traffic developments consistently based on air traffic data -, the article reports on a methodical approach, which should also serve to describe the most complete picture of air cargo flows, so far incomplete owing to lack of structured air cargo data.
