Switzerland Airports: long-term planning is lacking
The risk is to lose economic importance
The lack of long-term planning of airports could be a problem for the Swiss economy, considering that the risk of falling behind the competition is high especially if the major airports capabilities are not improved. This is what emerges from a study by the "Boston Consulting Group" -and reported by the local press- on the Swiss civil aviation system, which despite good functions may not support the increase in the number of airplanes in flight and the greater demand for air connections. At present, the airports in Switzerland have excellent passenger accommodation capacities as there are about 10 thousand multinationals in the cities and 49 major and "minor" international organizations, which require ease and speed in transport. While the rail links between Zurich, Geneva and Basel are being developed constantly, what is lacking is the 2030-oriented planning to improve the capacity of the airports in the three main cities.
