Passenger Transport by Air
AbstractIn general, transport by airis the fastest mode of traffic. Ineconomical and ecological terms, however, it appears less desirable.Moreover, its glory is usually confined to non-stop-linksexcept when bridging land-sea inte1jaces or ve1y long distances.Its current stand is mostly based on the lack of competing .systems.Therefore, the capacity of ailports is in many cases beingextended. Attempts by railways to establish attractive alternativesof transp01t are not promising. In contrast, a transrapidnet would provide substantial improvement as shown by the exampleof Germany which in this respect stands for most of Europe.
