In order to ensure that aviation can continue to make a decisive contribution to the individual mobility of people, solutions are needed that contribute to the sustainable development of air transport. To this end, the Institute of Air Transport researches the complex interrelationships of air transport and its subsystems. This includes the development of scenarios for the air transport markets, economic and business analyses of the air transport system, as well as the modelling and simulation of flight and fleet operations from the perspective of the air transport industry.
More than 50 employees forecast, design and evaluate air transport as part of the transport system and thus contribute to increasing sustainability and performance of the sector.
The Institute brings together the ecological, economic, technological and social aspects of air transport and combines – within DLR – key competencies for assessing air transport markets and evaluating the overall air transport value chain. In this way, the Institute positions itself as a competent contact partner for business, society and policymakers.
