ATRS 23rd World Conference in Amsterdam
2-5 July 2019
The Department of Spatial Economics and the School of Business Economics are proud to host the 23rd World Conference of the Air Transport Research Society.
In the plenary sessions, high-level academic speakers will exchange ideas with high-level government and industry speakers. The main theme of the conference will focus aviation, economic growth and sustainability.
A lot of studies try to indicate the expected growth in employment as a result of growth in the number of aviation passengers or flights. However, airports often already serve cities with a strong economy, and such cities often are also important tourist destinations. In general terms: accessibility is important for a strong economy, but a healthy transport sector needs a strong economy. Transport and the economy support each other.
