Abstract

Contemporary airports are the centers of diffusion of global technological achievements and shaping socio-economic relations. As multifunctional transport hubs, they activate the socio-economic potential of space management structures. Increased flows of people, means of transport and investments located around them strengthen the competitiveness of urban areas and their regions. Airports generate jobs and the development of prestigious activities in their environment. Large-scale structures are created around modern airports – landside areas, and they are becoming carriers of targeted development of contemporary space development structures. There are various interactions between the development of airports and related, landside zones, strengthening the development and importance of both structures. The aim of the study is to present the conditions, scope and effects of mutual developmental links between airports and areas surrounding them, including the airport in Gdansk.
