Aviation economist Floris de Haan will talk about the economy of aviation on 14 April. In this lecture, he will tell more about the functioning of the global aviation industry and discusses the challenges the industry faces.
These challenges are related to the greening of aviation and the recovery of the sector after the COVID-19 pandemic, but also the dynamics of air cargo and the regulation of airports.
Because aviation affects almost everyone, there is a lot of applied research to be done, for example into the effects of a regional tax on aviation fuel, or the voluntary compensation of CO2”, Floris explains.
