An airport is more than a physical infrastructure or a purely economic creation. Airport activities widely used to measure the role or influence of a city within a global network. The buzzing of new airport facilities around the world reflects that the awareness of the importance of airports and contributes to the intensification of airport competition around the world.
Observation of keen airport competition in the Greater Pearl River Delta region, a compact area of fragmented governance, give rise to this study. Believing a pure economic or institutional perspective cannot justify the cluster of airports, the main objective of this research is to take a cross-boundary metropolitan region approach, elucidate the airport competition and cooperation within the unique Hong Kong-Shenzhen cross-boundary metropolitan region.
The study aims to contribute a better understanding of the airport competition
and cooperation mechanism within the Hong Kong-Shenzhen cross-boundary metropolitan region. It also delivers a message to policy-makers and industry practitioners that strengthening cooperation and collaboration is perhaps the only way to maintain the region? competitiveness in the global arena, as the aviation industry gets ever more competitive.
