The global growth of tourism has been matched by the significant growth in transport networks. In many ways, transport and tourism can be considered mutually dependent. Understanding the dimensions of tourism requires an understanding of how transport is governed, regulated and operated and how it subsequently facilitates tourism development. This book provides an overview of the relationships between various modes and types of transport and tourism. It views transport through various lenses, including inter-governmental regulations, national government regulation, the scope of transport networks and how this influences the shape of tourism, and the marketing and management of transport operations. The book ends with some considerations for the future of transport and tourism, including the management of environmental consequences and new forms of tourism-related transport.


David Duval is one of the world's leading experts in aviation networks. This comprehensive textbook, also including a review of the role of marine and ground transport for tourism, is an insightful and very welcome addition to the scarce course literature in the field.

This book provides an excellent overview of the key issues facing tourism and transport today at the global level, without losing sight of local impacts. It should appeal to those students who see transport as a key driver in international tourism.
