Intangible regional effects of regional airports : A system analysis at the example of Switzerland

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract The operation of airports induces various external effects. In the public discussion the evaluation of external economic effects is an important factor for the legitimation of airport infrastructures. Whereas the economic effects of main airports is widely researched and monetary (e.g. revenues, job creation) as well as nonmonetary catalytic (e.g. structural, competence and network effects) are identified, the nonmonetary catalytic effects of regional airports are not yet broadly documented. Since airports direct monetary effects are often quite weak the intangible and nonmonetary catalytic effects have an important role.

This article delivers an analytical framework for the intangible and nonmonetary catalytic economic regional effects of small airports. It provides a classification of such effects and involves system analyses as a method to analyse such effects. It is a case study of Swiss regional airports Altenrhein, Bern, Sion, Lugano and Samedan
