Abstract

In an age of globalized economy and very dynamic competition for economic activities worldwide, airports are increasingly presented as strategically the most important transport infrastructure, expanding economic activity from capitals to the urban periphery and airport surroundings. Existing airports are no longer just transport infrastructure, but are becoming multifunctional complexes, whose impact on the surrounding region could be significant in various ways, primarily in business and commercial terms. Access to the airport is an important criterion for selecting the airport, and, thus, for its competitiveness. The development of the infrastructure for receiving and dispatching Cargo at the Franjo Tuđman Airport in Zagreb, Croatia, refers not only to airport facilities and spaces, but also to the larger logistics area surrounding the airport, including access to multimodal transport infrastructure. The role of services in modern economies has significantly increased, in terms of their production, employment and importance, as inputs for other sectors, which requires additional investment in modern infrastructure for receiving and shipping cargo with aim to strength competitiveness and position in the cargo market. This paper analyses the existing infrastructure’s capacities and estimates future needs for air cargo transportation in the catchment area of the mentioned airport. Furthermore, the paper presents a conceptual and methodological framework for the development of airport infrastructure and its impact on regional economic growth. In order to better present the results of the work, various methods were used, such as the method of analysis and synthesis, comparisons, statistics and descriptions. The research aims to determine the future needs and possibilities of the airport with regard to current capacities and existing infrastructure, in terms of increasing business interest in air cargo transport.
