Abstract

This paper presents a calculation concerning the economic impacts of extreme weather events for the European aviation industry. These impacts were calculated for current situation and for future situation in 2040. Future calculations were based on climate change scenarios in terms of changes in probabilities for extreme weather events occurrence. Official figures for the value of time in the aviation industry and data from airport flight schedule as well as type of fleet were used to calculate the costs for major European airports. The airports selected also represent different climate zones, where current and future phenomena and frequency are diverging. Findings show that aviation industry is concerned with time costs affecting passengers, and costs of cancellations of flights on operators
