The regional impact of low-cost carriers: Case study of Katowice and Skavsta airports
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
In our thesis we have presented the airports’ activity in the scope of impact of the Low Cost Carriers based on two cases: Katowice and Skavsta Airports. By analyzing the indicators for airports’ growth we described how the advantage of LCCs have affected in perceiving the airports, their regions and the LCCs’ services itself. We have found out that there’s a connection between the economic condition of the region and the types of services which the LCCs have in offer. Since both airports are facing similiar scale of the expansion, different drivers found in the regions’ features were stimulating the air traffic and shaping a dominant profile of the passenger. Following the patterns in respect to tourism we have concluded that the limitations which occur around low-cost services possibly shape the behaviour of travel planning. Whereas the activity of LCCs’ services are generally recognized as profitable to the region, we argue that in some cases the neighbourhood hampers the development in this sector.
