The project ADRIAIR aims at the possibility to set up a new flexible and on demand air connection in the Adriatic macro-region based on air taxi and the improvement of the security standards of the airports involved. Both these leading ideas are melted in the same project with the intention to contribute to facilitating, improving and intensifying the air transportation in the Adriatic macro-region. The ADRIAR project will contribute to establishing an articulated system of mobility within the Adriatic macro region capable to satisfy, with different means of transportation, the variegated and multifaceted needs of passengers. These needs are not only relying on tourism, but also, in an increasing way, on business and institutional relationships. The project involves 8 partners from Italy, Albania, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
ADRIAIR intends to contribute to improving the air transport situation in the two banks of the Adriatic through addressing some well-defined issues such as, Exploit the air transport market potential for the Adriatic 'regional' airports by conducting market studies; Harmonization of the security standards of the airports involved; Enhance the concrete operation of new air connections between regional airports of the Adriatic zone through investigating and then setting up a new on-demand service based on air-taxi; Lay down the basis to establish a permanent 'open' network among regional airports of the Adriatic; Via improving the air connections, reinforce the economic and institutional linkages between the two banks of Adriatic and hence foster the creation of new employment opportunities in the involved regions.
