The function, scale, and importance of major urban airports worldwide have changed over the past decade as a result of major economic, political, technological, and social changes. Modern airports are very different from traditional airports, and our previous knowledge is insufficient for understanding the complex roles and relationships now associated with airports. The airport can no longer be managed in isolation from the metropolitan region that it serves (Stevens, 2006). A new approach to regional planning is needed. It is therefore necessary to develop a theoretical and empirical basis for the new Airport Metropolis (Stevens, Baker, and Freestone, 2006).

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
