Strategic and Operational Challenges for Tourist Air Transport


  • Elisabeta Ilona Molnar
  • Remus Christian Moraru


The main objective of this paper is to identify the strategic and operational challenges that will face air transport by 2030. The authors noted that in tourism, air transport is of great importance for the business, because it provides the movement of the tourist from the place of residence to the chosen destination. Methodology and assumptions were based on information, indicators, processed by the relevant international organisations. Correction factors were determined based on some assumptions: the importance of that activity to achieve tourist consumption; the recommendations of international organisations (WTO, EUROSTAT) on the role of each activity in the development of the tourism phenomenon; the results of various surveys conducted in time. The research results can have a degree of approximation, but the authors’ analysis pursues achieving a first attempt to quantify the transport activities in tourism and the role of the latter in the national economy. The results obtained by the authors will be furthered by research and analyses to be performed for each and every component of air transport, independently or within macroeconomic strategies.
