Free registration required

Executive Summary

The aerotropolis is the physical Internet that ties these together. It connects a metro region to the global economy, especially flows of time-sensitive products such as microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, aerospace equipment, medical instruments, and high-value perishables. The airport and its immediate environs are central nodes in such national and global movements. Choosing to locate near an airport that has extensive flight networks makes sense for a variety of organization types. Time-critical manufacturing, repair and distribution facilities are better able to meet their speed and agility requirements. Corporate headquarters, trade offices, professional associations and information-intensive firms with frequently traveling business people value the proximity.
