European Observatory on Airport Capacity and Quality
UECNA is a member of the European Observatory on Airport Capacity and Quality under the European Commission’s Transport group. For two consecutive years (2014 – 2015), the organisation contributed to the formulation of two expert groups:
- TF 1 : Economic impacts of unaccommodated demand and environmental variables influencing airport capacity
- TF 3 : Learning from national, regional and local strategies on airport capacity
Economic impacts of unaccommodated demand and environmental variables influencing airport capacity
TF1 met several times and all the presentations made at the meetings can be found below :
- Eurocontrol presentation on how the environmental impacts of aviation have been factored into the development of the Challenges of Growth scenario – David Marsh
George Anjaparidze (IATA) presented their “Methodology on economic impact of air transport“, an analysis carried out in association with Oxford Economics (“Benefits of Aviation” studies)
- ACI EUROPE presented their “Economic Impact of Aviation“, a methodological approach that focuses on airports. The study is work in progress, carried out in partnership with InterVistas. The context addressed was healthy debates on many issues affecting aviation’s future. Including the European airports’ capacity crunch and the skepticism that prevails when it comes to various analyses of economic impact of aviation. Especially for induced and catalytic effects.
- Presentation by Bernard Berry highlights on the way environmental noise affects human health. The study analyses the way different factors interact: noise, stress, risk factors, manifest disorders.
- Bernard Berry and Diana Sanchez Barajas presentation on “The economic and social value of aircraft noise effects: A critical review of the state of the art”. This addressed quantification and monetisation of the effects. This dimension has taken on significance as a major field of study with important implications in policy making and business management.
- ACI Europe presentation by Diana Sanchez – Bernard Berry – “The economic and social value of aircraft noise effects: a critical review of the state of the art – 23-10-2014“
- Presentation by UECNA on the “Cost of the Negative Impacts of Air Transport” showing studies aimed at assessing the costs of the environmental impacts of air transport.
- ARC presentation by Pascal Garreau on Airport Noise Mitigation Tools to evaluate the impact/cost on health.
- Polish Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) report on environmental restrictions at Warsaw and Poznan airports. A presentation on the situation regarding landing charges, compensations and restriction of operations of these airports.
- The County Council of Val D’Oise study “Airport Impacts : What do we know?”emphasizing on the necessity to know what impacts are. From a scientific point of view, and from the policy makers’ point of view
- IATA presentation « Assessing Economic Impact Provisional results ». A methodological approach to assessing the economic impacts of air transport.
- French DGAC report “France: capacity and environmental policy for Paris Airports” focused on the relative merits of noise index vs. a noise quota system and on the environmental restrictions at Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airports, including their level of congestion now and in the future.
ACI EUROPE presentation on the results of its “Economic Impact Study“ applied to Challenges of Growth scenarios.
- Presentation by Donagh Cagney (ACI Europe) on key figures forecast of the Economic Impact of European Airports in 2035.
- A presentation by George Anjaparidze (IATA) on Foregone economic benefits from Airport Constraints: EU 28 showing economic impacts of air transport.
