DLR Low Cost Monitor: Eurowings aircraft on the apron

Ap­prox­i­mate­ly 30 per­cent of all flights from Ger­many are now op­er­at­ed by low-cost air­lines. DLR's Low Cost Mon­i­tor re­port has been pub­lished ev­ery spring and au­tumn since 2006.

The objective of the Institute of Air Transport and Airport Research is to investigate how both the air transport system and airport systems change over time under various influencing conditions. In addition, the Institute investigates how ideal conditions for these systems can be achieved.

Characteristic of the work on these issues are the design and performance of analyses of current developments, the definition and investigation of scenarios for future developments using system models, the development and application of assessment tools to support decisions to actively avoid undesirable outcomes, the design and development of methods for the efficient implementation of control measures and the observation and evaluation of compliance and success of said measures. These activities aim at establishing long-term strategic measures for environmentally sound, sustainable air transport development.
