The role of airports as the main infrastructure to develop local and regional tourism

Joel Fernandes, Amândio da Silva, Eduardo Albuquerque

Abstract


With frontiers becoming ever lesser deterrents, with the growth of population inter-relationships and with growing globalization, the existence of an airport in a region is a must. The airport enables the conversion of a territory into a tourist destination, and, thus has a significant local and regional importance, being able to give international visibility to the location.

The Oporto city airport, in Portugal, is a pragmatic example of how a structure of this kind contributed decisively to convert the city and northern Portugal region into one of the best European tourist destinations.
