RAeS on airports

Global Journeys: Forging the Airport Experience of Tomorrow will be the subject of an all-day conference at the Royal Aeronautical Society, London, next Monday (24 April), against the backdrop of aviation as today’s fastest growing form of travel.

The growth of the industry is bringing with it an unprecedented forecast for airport infrastructure worldwide, at the centre of which is the need for new, improved and expanded passenger terminal facilities.

The conference will discuss how such developments will be able to cater to ever-increasing numbers of passengers and flights while maintaining quality of service, safety and performance.

Among questions to be addressed will be whether human behaviour drives the accepted norms of the travel experience, whether the air travel industry has moulded passenger behaviour and how architects and designers capture human behaviour.

Speakers, including Schiphol senior urban planner Maurits Schaafsma, will also discuss whether better structures and systems could be designed from lessons that have been learned over the years as the industry has developed to the significance it has today.

Registration fees for the conference are £180 for non-RAeS members, £150 for RAeS corporate partners and £120 for RAeS members.
