Super Terminal Expo and CAPA Releases In-Depth Report: The Past, the Present and the Future of the Aerotropolis: Strategies Emerging in Asia and the Rest of the World

 Hong Kong, China, 24 June 2024 – Super Terminal Expo (STE), together with CAPA – Centre for Aviation (CAPA), published a report titled “The Past, the Present, and the Future of Aerotropolis: Strategies Emerging in Asia and the Rest of the World”. The report outlines airports’ major technological leaps, and ambitious environmental strategies including a move towards electric aircraft and advocating for green finance, amidst calls for a unified voice to champion sustainable aviation.

A Comprehensive Perspective on Aerotropolis Evolution 

 This comprehensive report serves as an analytical lens focusing on the dynamic evolution and strategic development of aerotropolises worldwide, with a particular emphasis on Asian regions.   


In this report, you’ll gain exclusive insights into:

1. Key technological leaps within the airport industry
2. Developing strategies for environmental stewardship in aviation
3. The future of electric aircraft and the role of green finance in powering this transition
4. The need for a unified and influential voice advocating for sustainable aviation 

Historically anchored in Western innovations, the aerotropolis concept has witnessed a dynamic shift, particularly across Asian regions. Countries like Hong Kong, South Korea, and India are at the forefront, developing infrastructures such as Hong Kong International Airport, Incheon International Airport, and Delhi Aerotropolis. These developments are not only reshaping local economies but are also setting new benchmarks in efficient airport operations and passenger satisfaction. 

The report stresses the critical need for integrating aerotropolis projects within the overarching urban development strategy, rather than viewing them as standalone entities. A key insight from the study highlights the necessity of dovetailing these conglomerates with economically viable and technologically equipped urban plans, such as the ‘15-minute city’ concept, thus enhancing connectivity and sustainability. 


Strategic Partnerships Shaping Global Aviation Dialogues 

The collaboration between STE and CAPA exemplifies a synergy that leverages decades of industry intelligence and insights to address the complex challenges and opportunities within the global airport sector. This partnership enriches the report’s content, making it a critical resource for airport leaders, operators and vendors, policymakers, and academics alike.
