Air traffic has grown at an average rate of 5% over the last 15 years. While this enables the aviation industry to remain as one of the strongest sectors of Europe’s economy, it creates capacity problems for air traffic management and passenger movement through airports. This paper provides a guide to the results of Research & Technical Development projects relating to Air Transport, carried out in transport research programmes throughout the European Research Area.
