The economic crisis and the impact on the network quality of hub airports


Network quality and the economic crisis
Airneth will organize a workshop on 22 September 2009 entitled 'The impact of the economic crisis on network quality'. This workshop is scheduled between 12-18 hrs. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in The Hague, The Netherlands.

One of the key priorities of the Dutch air transport policy is to maintain and strengthen the network quality of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
Obviously, the current economic crisis affects network quality of hub airports negatively on the short term. However, it is unclear to what extent the economic crisis will have a more structural impacts on the network quality of airports.
