  • First international Forum about Air Transport and Tourism Management

On 21st January 2016 the first international forum on Air Transport and Tourism Management at Toulouse 3 University will be held.

This scientific day organised under the aegis of two research labs (EIREST and LAIRDIL) is part of the professional education and continuous training of the MITAT Master 2 course, second programme in the field “Management Information Systems” (MSI) in the broader field of “Law Economy and Management.”

This Master’s degree is a unique course in France thanks to its double qualification. It is innovative, international and cross-curricular. Its aim is to train future executives and managers in air transport and tourism. International tourism is booming with an anticipated 1.8 billion travellers in 2030. The aim of the forum is to connect professionals and researchers in the field of air transport and tourism.
Research into tourism and transport are separately dealt with in scientific journals.
Transport, notably air transport, plays a major role in the tourist experience nowadays. Indeed, 30 million commercial flights, i.e. 2.8 billion passengers, were recorded in 2011. 200 million flights are expected in 2021. This trend is confirmed because in 2014, 53 % of international tourists flew, according to the UNWTO. Air transport, like all means of transport, is taking action to curb energy consumption, protect the environment, develop economic, tourist, educational and cultural exchanges and at the same time ensuring air safety and security. These exchanges rely on a close collaboration between ICAO and UNWTO to develop and manage the numbers of passengers in airports. The permanent safety priority for passengers in air transport will be facilitated by pooling information and research with a view to providing the best possible responses to growing economic, financial and human constraints. This academic, scientific and professional forum especially aims at setting off exchanges in the following fields: How do air transport and tourism sectors interact with destination choices? This forum will equally be dealing with the scientific and the practical sides of tourism and airtransport.
