SITUATION OF AIR TRAFFIC IN COMPARISON TO GROUND TRANSPORTATION NOTING ESPECIALLY ENERGETIC PROBLEMS

DIE SITUATION DES LUFTVERKEHRS IM VERGLEICH ZU DEN BODENGEBUNDENEN VERKEHRSMITTELN UNTER BESONDERER BERUECKSICHTIGUNG ENERGETISCHER PROBLEME

The effects of increasing fuel costs on the future development of air traffic in competition with ground transportation were investigated, also taking into account other factors. Possibilities of fuel economies by operational and technical savings measures are discussed, and limits in technical feasibility (effort) and economical effect (profits) are indicated. The effects of increasing fuel prices on the competitive position of air traffic vis-a-vis ground traffic are not considered serious from the present point of view, and limitations in future expansion of air traffic are not confirmed.
