Article
Full-text available
Business research has rarely explored service innovation for the traditionally conservative legal industry. Using a resource-based and practice-based view blend as its theoretical backbone we develop an understanding of the parameters underpinning law firm innovation as a facilitator of operations management enhancement and possible source of entre...
Article
Full-text available
The economic development of many countries globally relies heavily on tourism arrivals and spending. Terrorist attacks, political unrest, and other external shocks create disruptions and imbalances that lead to tourism crises with devastating effects on a country’s economy. The paper quantitatively examines the wider economic impacts and welfare ef...
Article
Full-text available
This paper applies an input-output (I-O) approach and a dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) model to examine the economy-wide short-and long-run impacts of an increase in public capital investment in air transport infrastructure. The results of the I-O analysis reveal that air transport has above-average backward linkages with other sector...
Article
Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) has many advocators suggesting that it could evolve to the cornerstone of a new mobility paradigm since, in theory, it can tackle many of society's grand challenges referring to environmental degradation, increased traffic congestion and reduced accessibility. However, little evidence exists to confirm that this is achi...
Article
Full-text available
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused major disruptions to international tourism and has stimulated research interest. This study examines links between COVID-19-induced tourism disruption and poverty in Tanzania. Unlike previous studies linking COVID-19, tourism and poverty, this paper uses a social accounting matrix (SAM) microsimulation analysis that...
Article
Full-text available
This article investigates the effects of air transport liberalisation on economic freedom and air connectivity, and the extended effects on economic development. A PLS path modelling estimator, applied to annual data for 52 countries over the period 2011–2019, shows that aviation liberalisation promotes economic freedom and improves air connectivit...
Article
The problem of how to evaluate investments in airports has now been studied for over 50 years. This paper analyzes the use of different methods like cost–benefit analysis (CBA), economic impact analysis (EIA), and computable general equilibrium (CGE) models to address the question. It assesses the strength and weaknesses of each method, and it disc...
Chapter
This chapter examines the contribution of Computable general equilibrium (CGE) modelling to the quantification of the economic impacts and benefits of air transport infrastructure and policies, focusing primarily on the structure, overall operation, strengths and weaknesses of existing air transport focused CGE models.
Article
Full-text available
In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), in general, and Senegal, in particular, tourism has often been proposed as a pro-poor development strategy due to its intensive use of unskilled labour. However, few studies have examined the linkage between tourism and agriculture, which is still the principal sector for employment in many SSA countries. Using a Struct...
Article
Full-text available
This paper aims to assess the progress made towards the implementation of a Single European Sky (SES). It examines the program’s four main key performance indicators - environmental impact, safety, cost efficiency and capacity - and depicts in more detail the sequence of changes in each problematic area, thereby providing a better visualization of...
Article
Full-text available
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a novel brand of transport that promises to replace private cars with multimodal personalised mobility packages enabled by a digital platform capable of integrating travel planning, booking and ticketing, and real-time information services. It is an intervention that through its digitisation, connectivity, informatio...
Article
Research on the development and impacts of air transport has hitherto focused mainly on developed countries in the Global North, and relatively little on less developed countries in the Global South. The seven papers of this Special Issue of the Journal of Transport Geography aim to address this imbalance and encourage further research on air trans...
Article
Full-text available
This paper investigates the links between air connectivity, tourism benefits and welfare. It improves on the common practice in the literature by demonstrating avenues of tourism expansion and their welfare implications using both a partial and a general equilibrium model. The results of the gravity model show that there is a strong connection betw...
Article
This paper investigates the claim that air transport development may be an engine for inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction in developing and emerging countries, using the example of South Africa, a country with high income inequality and rising air traffic volume. A social accounting matrix (SAM) model is adopted to assess the strengths...
Article
Full-text available
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful concept still in its infancy that has the potential, if utilised responsibly, to provide a vehicle for positive change that could promote sustainable transitions to a more resource-efficient livability paradigm. AI with its deep learning functions and capabilities can be employed as a tool which empowers m...
Article
The Egyptian air transport industry is subject to a range of restrictions and charges, which combine to reduce the country's air connectivity and competitiveness. This paper assesses the links between air transport policies and tourism and wider economic benefits. It first provides estimates of the distortions that the present and relatively closed...
Article
This study investigates the determinants of air traffic volumes and structure (carrier type) at lesser studied small European airports serving below one million passengers per annum. It discusses airport choice factors for airline customers and focuses on the characteristics of small airports and their catchment areas in order to explain variation...
Article
Full-text available
The importance of safety within an organization is determined by the implementation of a Safety Management System (SMS), organizational culture, management commitment and behaviour, the activity of staff themselves, and to what degree safety reporting is upheld (Cohen, Wiegmann and Shappell, 2015). Canada was the first country globally to implement...
Article
Connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) could become the most powerful mobility intervention in the history of human race; possibly greater than the conception of the wheel itself or the shift from horse-carriages to automobiles. Despite CAVs’ likely traffic safety, economic, environmental, social inclusion and network performance benefits their f...

Article
Full-text available
Increased congestion at hub airports affects on-time airline performance to the detriment of customer satisfaction and may have substantially negative repercussions for airlines in a hypercompetitive environment. This paper concentrates on the on-time performance of British Airways (BA) at London Heathrow Airport (LHR) to identify BA's delays/disru...
Article
The aim of this paper is to discuss the impact of recent regulatory changes in air passenger transport between Europe and Africa. We quantify the impacts of liberalisation of the EU-Africa aviation market on air fare and service frequency using a two-stage least squares model approach. The analysis shows that inter-continental air services between...
Article
Despite growth in research on air transport in Africa in recent years, little is known about the adequacy of the infrastructure to sustain potential future air traffic expansion. The continent has experienced growth in domestic, intra- and inter-continental air traffic services over the past two decades that we project will continue over the medium...

This paper provides an overview of the regulatory trends and development of air transport between the EU and Africa, focussing on passenger tr...
Article
Full-text available
Background: The issue of measuring the contribution of air transport to the regional economy is very important nowadays since many airport infrastructure projects are being implemented, using available European Union funds. As a result of growing transport needs and increasing incomes among the population, the air transport market is strongly devel...
Article
To promote the development of air transport at the continental level, several policies were introduced, leading to the Yamoussoukro Decision (YD) in late 1999, which had the liberalisation of the intra-African aviation spaces as its main objective. Even though notable progress has been achieved towards more market-oriented aviation policies, at the...
Conference Paper
Tourism is increasingly being promoted as an important source of economic growth especially in developing countries. While there are many elements that contribute to tourism growth, without an efficient air transport system, it is almost impossible for a number of landlocked and geographically isolated developing nations to expand and sustain domes...
Article
Traditionally designed for network carrier operations, airports are increasingly diversifying their services with new facilities being developed, specifically, to attract and accommodate low-cost carriers. In order to reflect the changing environment, some airports have built low-cost terminal facilities (or refurbished existing ones) for low-cost...
