Project Description


Project description

The aim of the project was to promote the realization of air taxi connections between the regional airports of the Adriatic, through reciprocal territorial marketing of the involved areas and to lay down the basis for creating a permanent network of regional airports of the Adriatic Euroregion to exchange experiences and best practices. This project represented a valuable opportunity for candidates of the EU to work alongside EU members, for a better integration of the Western Balkans into the EU.


What has been done during the project in order to achieve its main goal(s)?

1) Investigation of market potential for air taxi passengers, through the identification of potential customers, air taxi operators and forecast of future market demand.

2) Elaboration of an Action Plan to set up a cross-border air-taxi service.

3) Assessment of the state-of-art of involved airport’s security.

4) Training activities to increase the expertise and skills of personnel working in  the involved airports in the field of airport security and marketing.

5) Implementation of a geo-referential site showing the airports involved in ADRIAIR and the air-taxi services available to all interested stakeholders and potential users of the service.

6) Implementation of pilot actions at the airports of Forli, Ravenna, Rijeka, Pula, Dubrovnik and Banja Luka aimed to highly improve security and accessibility to these facilities.
