As part of the LAirA (Landside Airports Accessibility) project, CO2 reduction possibilities for passengers and employees commuting from and to European airports were investigated. In order to share the key findings from the project and the individual pilot projects with other stakeholders, an event for knowledge transfer and networking took place at Vienna International Airport from 30 September to 1 October 2019. The event was primarily aimed at airport operators, public institutions, mobility service providers and companies in the mobility sector.
Various pilot projects were launched as part of the project: from carpooling offers to campaigns to raise awareness and improve the mobility of passengers in general, a total of seven projects will be active over the next six months. The most important findings and the transferability to other airports were part of the knowledge transfer at the previous event. In a separate workshop, measures were developed to improve the future mobility planning of an airport and thus to provide airport operators with a comprehensive information basis to enable them also to get involved in this field. The knowledge gained, which will be published by the end of the year, will provide an information basis that operators can fall back on if necessary.
AustriaTech coordinates and supports the pilot projects conceptually and endeavours to ensure the transferability and comparability of the results. As part of LAirA, AustriaTech experts also drew up an action plan on sharing mobility at airports of the project partners and Vienna International Airport. Based on this action plan, the project also defined areas for action and recommendations for measures in the area of sharing and the reduction of CO2 emissions.
