Methodology for assessing sustainability of an air transport system
Milan Janić, 2002, original scientific article

Abstract: Assessment and operationalisation of the concept of a sustainable air transport system have been recognised recently as an important but complex research, operational and policy tasks. In the scope of the current academic efforts to properly address these problems, this paper develops methodology for assessing the sustainability of an air transport system. The methodology is based on the indicator systems of sustainability defined for the operational, economic, social, and environmental dimensions of the system performance. The measures are defined for each indicator to express the systemeffects (benefits) and impacts (costs) for particular actors such as the system users--air travellers, air transport operators, aerospace manufacturers, local community members, local and central government. They are assumed to evaluate the system sustainability with respect to the values of selected indicators. Generally, for all of them the system will be sustainable if the indicators representing effects (benefits) are as high as possible and increase with increasing system output, and the indicators representing impacts (costs) are as low as possible and decrease with increasing system output.
