浙江福彩15选5走势图:Creating a Tourism Destination from an Airport Hub
Aviation route development is a key factor in Travel & Tourism’s success. Over time and through a strategic approach, some aviation hub cities have been able to extend the stays of transit visitors into multi-day stopovers and to encourage visits to the city as a final destination in its own right.
Developing this move from transit hub to destination relies on a number of key factors. The destinations that have had greatest success in making this transition have benefitted from a combination of:
A strong national airline that is both financially and reputationally strong,
Solid destination appeal with robust inbound tourism,
Excellent airline connectivity, sufficient infrastructure, and favourable regulatory frameworks developed through established stakeholder partnerships,
Vertical or central integration and long-term vision of both aviation and the destination.
This paper provides examples to illustrate that the potential for extending tourism beyond an airport hub and the coordination this requires in terms of a destination strategy involving local industry, destination authorities and the aviation hub.
