     - globalisation

     - economic maturity and the growth of knowledge
       economies

     - rise of tourism as a high value sector

     - growth of low fares air travel

       What Can the Public Sector Do?

   Essentially about developing policies that act on these main pillars
    for development

   Could be about major infrastructure developments such as
    supporting airport capacity development or improving surface
    access

   Set aside development land for airport expansion or open up sites
    for businesses requiring airport access

   Work with your airports and economic development partners to
    support route development

   Market your region, working with your airports and airlines to deliver
    a coherent product

          The Stockholm Experience

    been completed

            The Stockholm Experience

                         Some Background
   Stockholm Arlanda handled around 17.1 million passengers and 145,000
    tonnes of freight in 2005
   It serves around 80 international destinations, including 6 intercontinental
   One of three European hubs for SAS, but not the intercontinental hub
   The Stockholm region is a successful international region, recognised as a
    world leader in innovation and a centre for knowledge based industries
   One of the most successful regions in Europe in terms of the attraction of
    inward investment

          The Stockholm Experience



 The aim is therefore to support the continued growth of the
 wider Stockholm through the ongoing growth of Stockholm
Arlanda, while at the same time seeking to capture a greater
   proportion of the economic benefit of the Airport in the
                       STRAIR region
