Knowledge precincts are becoming an increasingly important part of the development of airport regions as they play a significant role in knowledge production, which strengthens the knowledge-based development of city-regions. The purpose of this paper is to engage critically with understanding of airport knowledge precincts (AKPs), and to suggest the need for both empirical and theoretical expansions. The paper investigates the role of knowledge precincts at international airports, and contributes to the conceptualisation of AKPs. The methodology of this paper includes review of the literature, analysis of the global good practices, and development of a research framework to understand the emergence of AKPs. The findings of the paper provide insights and build a substantial base for further research and a theoretical understanding of the integration of knowledge precincts and the development of airports.
