Air Transport: A Tourism Perspective provides rigorous insights into the current complexities, synergies and conflicts within
air transportation and tourism, presenting a balanced, comprehensive, contemporary, and global analysis that thoroughly examines
the links between theory and practice. The book offers readers a multi-sector, global perspective on the practical implications
of the link between air transport and tourism. By using a novel approach, it systematically explores the successive stages
of a tourist's trip-investigating reasons for flying, the airport experience, airline industry structures, competition and
regulation, and air transportation and destination interrelationships.
In addition, the book explores current
and salient debates on such issues as the influence of traveling to visit friends and family, the role of charters versus
low cost carriers, public subsidies to support airport development, and much more.
