New Mobility Pilots Future Aviation

The Aviation Addendum to the New Mobility Now report offers a look at the changing world of aviation in light of developments related to the automated, connected, electric and shared aspects of New Mobility.


Increasing passenger demand coupled with technological advancement are shaping a dynamic period for commercial aviation. New and emerging technologies continue to create entirely unique ways of serving passenger and operational needs, thrusting aviation into an era shaped by change that is unprecedented in scope, pace and potential impact. 

Delivering an enjoyable and stress-free travel experience for passengers requires airports to integrate enterprise-wide technologies to meet their operational targets and business objectives. Within this technology-based landscape, transport infrastructure must also be developed to meet current capacity needs and accommodate future realities and expectations. 

Today’s rising demand for air travel, particularly at the world’s hub airports, has resulted in huge pressures on existing surface access transport systems connecting to and from airports, with many road networks constrained by heavy congestion. 

New Mobility—the bundle of transport, technology and mobility changes that are already transforming the way we move around, live and interact with each other—will become the bedrock of future transport systems as the 21st century continues to unfold. New Mobility options can support capacity needs to, from and within the airport. Evaluating these New Mobility options is an essential part of today’s infrastructure planning.

WSP is pleased to introduce the New Mobility Now Aviation Addendum, which explores New Mobility developments that can enhance aviation operations and airport capabilities toward the ultimate goal of creating a first-rate door-to-door passenger experience.
