Intensifying urban encroachment, changes in aviation security requirements and the implementation of new technologies to enable a more seamless passenger journey: Modern airports are facing many challenges in their pursuit to operate their facilities efficiently and cost-effectively.
Australian airports play a crucial role in ensuring the nation’s mobility and supporting regional economic growth. Increasing passenger numbers in both the business and leisure sector are underpinning the need for further airport development. Across the country, aerodromes, large and small, are busy building new runways, upgrading air side and land side facilities or even constructing entire additional terminals and access roads. The big balancing act is to manage the development processes and engage with concerns from the community whilst ensuring smooth everyday operations at the airport.
Building lasting relationships with airlines is a key factor in enabling sustainable development and growing aeronautical revenue. Forming a route development strategy and a persuasive marketing campaign will foster airport-airline affiliation long into the future.
At the same time, the importance of non-aeronautical revenue through car parking, retail as well as landside and airside business development is ever increasing. How can airports make the most of their assets and boost their revenue sources?
The 2nd annual Aviation Business Airport Operations 2012 conference will take a closer look at the business relationships and technologies that enable long-lasting growth. Hosted at the conference facilities at Canberra Airport’s Brindabella Business Park, delegates will be able to join Canberra Airport representatives for an exclusive tour of the existing facilities and the new terminal currently under construction.
