Air Transport and the Economy

logo (large)Ellie Evans spoke at the GARS Workshop on “The Effects of Air Transport on the Economy – How can we Evaluate Them?” The workshop was held at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Geneva and Ellie spoke on the topic of lessons learnt from High Speed Rail in the UK and their application to aviation. She spoke about the need for models to be fit for purpose, understanding the assumptions that underpin them, the need for better metrics of accessibility, and how methods needed to consider the potential for HS2 to create a Step Change in the economic geography of the UK.
