European Aviation Conference 2014


The third European Aviation Conference, the premier economics and public policy conference in aviation, is entitled 'Aviation Infrastructure Capacity: too much or too little?' Lack of aviation capacity as well as overcapacity in aviation infrastructure simultaneously exist in many countries. Can capacity utilization be improved by better air traffic forecasting, new slot allocation methods, more flexible planning techniques and better social cost benefit analyses? These are just some of the issues that will be addressed during this conference.
