The advantages and disadvantages of air transport

  1. 1. The advantages and disadvantages of air transport
  2. 2.  An airplane or aeroplane (informally plane) is a powered, fixed- wing aircraft that is propelled forward by thrust from a jet engine orpropeller. Airplanes come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and wing configurations. The broad spectrum of uses for airplanes includesrecreation, transportation of goods and people, military, and research. Commercial aviation is a massive industry involving the flying of tens of thousands of passengers daily on airliners. Most airplanes are flown by a pilot on board the aircraft, but some are designed to be remotely or computer-controlled.
  3. 3.  IV. Easy Access:  Air transport is regarded as the only means of transport in those areas which are not easily accessible to other modes of transport. It is therefore accessible to all areas regardless the obstruction of land.  V. No Physical Barrier:  Air transport is free from physical barriers because it follows the shortest and direct routes where seas, mountains and forests do not obstruct.  VI. Natural Route:  Aircrafts travels to any place without any natural obstacles or barriers. Because the custom formalities are compiled very quickly. It avoids delay in obtaining clearance.
  4. 4. Advantages  I. High Speed:  Air transport is the fastest mode of transport and therefore suitable carriage of goods over a long distance requiring less time. There is no substitute for air transport when the transport of goods is required urgently.  II. Quick Service:  Air transport provides comfortable, efficient and quick transport service. It is regarded as best mode of transport for transporting perishable goods.  III. No Infrastructure Investment:  Air transport does not give emphasis on construction of tracks like railways. As no capital investment in surface track is needed, it is a less costly mode of transport.
  5. 5. Disadvantages  I. Risky:  Air transport is the most risky form of transport because a minor accident may put a substantial loss to the goods, passengers and the crew. The chances of accidents are greater in comparison to other modes of transport.  II. Very Costly:  Air transport is regarded as the costliest mode of transport. The operating cost of aero-planes are higher and it involves a great deal of expenditure on the construction of aerodromes and aircraft. Because of this reason the fare of air transport are so high that it becomes beyond the reach the common people.  III. Small Carrying Capacity:  The aircrafts have small carrying capacity and therefore these are not suitable for carrying bulky and cheaper goods. the load capacity cannot be increased as it is found in case of rails.
  6. 6.  IV. Huge Investment:  Air transport requires huge investment for construction and maintenance of aerodromes. It also requires trained, experienced and skilled personnel which involves a substantial investment.  V. Unreliable:  Most of the air transport are uncertain and the unreliable because these are controlled by weather condition. It is seriously affected by adverse weather conditions. Fog, snow and heavy rain weather may cause cancellation of some flights.
