The present edited volume deals exclusively with issues related to the synergies and conflicts in the relationship between aviation and leisure travel. The key underlying theme which is emphasized throughout the book is that it is essential for all to recognise the two-way linkages which exist between the aviation and tourism industries and to ensure that these are fully understood during any decision making process. The authors of each chapter are each highly recognized authorities on the specific subject area that they are considering. Moreover the exact mix of the authors has been carefully chosen so as to create a balanced representation from both industry and academia and also from different world regions. The end result is that a wide range of different topics related to the aviation-tourism interface have been examined from a mixture of different viewpoints.
