What will the future bring for air traffic?
Publication date: 9 July 2012
Tagged with: EUROCONTROL
EUROCONTROL publishes a series of studies giving predictions on how traffic could evolve in the long-term. The latest one is available now.
The aim of the Challenges of Growth series of studies is to provide decision-makers with the best-achievable set of information to support long-term planning decisions for aviation in Europe, with a particular focus on the capacity of the air transport network. Studies were completed in 2001, 2004 and 2008.
Work has now started on an update to be published in 2013. This is the report of the first task, which looked at the implications of the recent economic and traffic downturn for the latest long-term flight forecast, published in 2010. Challenges of Growth 2008 was based on a 20-year flight forecast prepared in 2008. This forecast has since been updated (in 2010, the “LTF”), and this updated forecast was the basis for the SESAR Master Plan update, among other studies.
