Social and Economic Benefits and Upcoming Airport Projects

Airports play a key role in the economic and social development of a region and the entire world as a whole. Economic benefits such as facilitating world trade, boosting productivity, investment inflow and outflow, and social benefits such as improving quality of life and enabling tourism are discussed in brief. Key drivers and restraints for airport projects are discussed. A recent trend in airports, lounges, is discussed; on how airlines are investing hugely in lounges to attract customers. A country-wise breakup of investments in upcoming airport projects is provided. A case study of Canberra Airport is given on how it contributes towards direct employment in the region and the value it adds in terms of gross regional product.

Social benefits

Improves Quality of Life
Airlines improve quality of life by allowing people to experience different cultures and pursuing other leisure activities by providing a wide choice of holiday destinations around the world at an affordable cost. It also helps people in meeting distant relatives and friends. Airports are sometimes the only mode to reach some places in the world, thus it helps in social inclusion of that particular region.

Sustainable Development of Tourism
Airports are indispensable for tourism, especially to remote and island destinations. Tourism directly creates jobs in airlines and airports, while tourists spending helps in revenue creation for the vendors and government.

Thus, they help in sustainable development. With the help of tourism and trade, economic development is achieved through increased jobs, revenue, taxes. It also helps in fostering the conservation of protected area.

Helps During Emergency
Presence of airports helps in the delivery of emergency and humanitarian aid relief and ensures the rapid delivery of medical supplies and organ transportation in those areas through air freight, which is increasingly becoming the most preferred mode of transport for high-value products.
