The Aerotropolis

What is an Aerotropolis

As conceived by aerotropolis thought-leader, Dr. John Kasarda, an aerotropolis is an urban subregion whose infrastructure, land-use, and economy are centered on an airport. The aerotropolis consists of a multimodal, multifunctional airport city at its core and extended corridors and clusters of aviation-linked businesses and their associated residential developments.
