"Air Transport and Regional Development Policies is one of three inter-connected books related to a four-year European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action established in 2015. The Action, called Air Transport and Regional Development (ATARD), aimed to promote a better understanding of how the air transport related problems of core regions and remote regions should be addressed in order to enhance both economic competitiveness and social cohesion in Europe. This book focuses on policy implications related to air transport and regional development. It begins with chapters that generally discuss important policy issues related to air transport and regional development in relation to connectivity and accessibility, dependency, airport governance and regulation, and air traffic control frameworks. This is followed by a number of chapters considering government studies and state aid. The final chapters then focus on other policy implications (tourism development, airport expansion, passenger taxation and noise control). There is no other single source publication that currently covers this topic area in such a comprehensive manner by considering so many varied and diverse polices. The book aims at becoming a major reference on the topic, drawing from experienced researchers in the field, covering the diverse experience and knowledge of the members of the COST Action. The book will appeal to academics, practitioners and government bodies who have a particular interest in acquiring detailed comparative knowledge and understanding of the varied and diverse policy implications of air transport and regional development. Together with the other two books (Air Transport and Regional Development Methodologies; Air Transport and Regional Development Case Studies) it fills a much-needed gap in the literature". --
