Abstract

A community's survival depends on trade and transportation. As competition in the global marketplace increased in the 21st century, the airport emerged as the fifth wave of transportation. The purpose of this quantitative, explanatory, quasi-experimental study was to determine the relationship between human capital development and the aerotropolis model airport performance. This study validated previous research that airports are important drivers of economic development. However, the study findings revealed a possible skills gap in the aerotropolis model. Findings also indicated cargo intensity at the aerotropolis model airport is less important to the economic success of the airport than passenger intensity.
