What are inter. There may be a need to provide air services on short. Q2.Concept Questions Q1. Q3 What are the 2 types of cost involved in air transport The two types of costs that are basically involved in air transport are: Fixed cost and variable cost Fixed cost Fixed cost of air transport is associated with aircraft purchase and requirements for specialized handling systems and a cargo container is low compared to rail.hauled routes for areas with difficult terrain or for an important tourist destination. which are other wise not accessible. It is therefore desirable that the short hauled routes covering distances of up to 250 ± 300 kms are served by other modes of transport like railways and road transport in order to optimize the use of scarce energy resources. EG. What are the criticalities and characteristics of air transport? Criticalities a) Used for the products. . Characteristics: a) Comparatively low fixe4d cost and very high variable cost. saving in time offered by the air transport (may be marginal on short hauled routes). Perishable/ meat/ flowers. flying time. which needs distribution speed. water and pipeline.). Electronics garments etc. c) Best for seasonal products. b) Used for high priced products EG.modal issues? Inter modal issues include the presence of other modes of transportation and considering the total travel time (including time taken from city centre to the airport. g) The air transport capability is characterized by load size constraints and aircraft availability. b) Creates new markets. efficiency and frequency? EG. luggage clearance time etc. f) Flexibility security and speedy operations. reporting time. Low ± aircraft and handling and cargo systems. d) Encourages global competition. e) Consignment is delivered quickly.
maintenance and intensity of in ± flight and ground crew. switchyards and terminals b) Low variable operating cost c) Replacement of steam by diesel and electricity. double stack rail cars. and labour intensiveness 2) Railways A) High fixed cost because of expensive equipments.g. E. 3) Motor carriers a) A relatively smaller fixed cost investments in comparison to railways Rate of variable cost is high because of separate power units and driver for each truck or trailer. . labour and maintenance Q4 what are the situations in which airfreight is justified? Situations justifying airfreight 1) High value products 2) Perishable 3) Limited marketing period 4) Emergency Q5 What is birdy back. For e. It is a mode of air transport in which usually heavy machinery or heavy equipments are directly transported by loading it into the specially designed aircrafts. the cost has been reduced. Waterways and pipelines Airfreight variable cost is very high because of fuel maintenance. High ± fuel. Right of way.g. 4) Water transport a) Fixed cost. has further reduced the variable cost d) By increasing the carrying the capacity using the unit trains. BRIEF QUESTIONS Q1 Discus the cost aspect in airlines and compare it with various modes of transport 1) Airways a) Very expensive b) Fixed cost is comparatively lower than railway.Variable cost Airfreight variable cost is extremely high as result of fuel. many a time¶s military trucks and cars are transported by means of birdy back where the vehicles are directly uploaded into the aircraft.
This is becoming less of constraint. According to a classic study by Lewis. less protective packaging is required for air freight. overall delivery time may be so reduced that a well managed truck and rail operation can match the schedule of air . although air Port to airport speed average speed is somewhat less than cruising speed because of taxi and holding time at each airport and the time need to ascent to and descend from cruising altitude. provided that ground handling does not offer a higher exposure to damage then the en. and productivity ± improvement programmes. Air transportation service exists in common contract and private legal forms. Direct air service is offered in 7 types 1) Regular domestic trunk ± line carriers 2) All cargo carriers 3) Local ± service airlines 4) Supplemental carriers 5) Air taxies 6) Commuter airlines 7) International carriers About a dozen airlines operate currently over the most heavily traveled routes. Culliton and Steele. the ratio of claim costs to freight revenue was only about 60% of those for truck or rail . when compared with average delivery times. even though air freight rates exceed those of trucking by more than 2 times and those of rail by more than 16 times. weather conditions and traffic congestion. Commercial jets have cruising speeds between 545 and 585 miles per hour. Because surface freight handling and movement is the slowest portion of total door to door delivery time. As service dependability and availability can be rated as good under normal operating conditions.route phase of the movement and that airport theft is not excessive. The average length of a freight haul is 1000 miles. The appeal of air transportation is its unmatched origin . even though air service is quite sensitive to mechanical break down. Variability. Delivery time variability is low in absolute magnitude. deregulation.door ton-mile costs are expected to drop to about 1 ± half of the current cost levels through the benefit of new technology.The fixed cost lies between those of railways and motor carriers b) Can carry large tonnage at low cost. But this speed is not directly comparable with that of other modes because the times for pick up and delivery and for ground handling are not included.destination speed. however. This would make air a serious competitor with the premium forms surface ± transport services. Door. as larger aircrafts are put into service. All the se elements must be combined to represent door-to-door air delivery time. 5) Water pipelines a) Has the highest value of fixed cost b) Very low variable cost since pipelines is not labour intensive Q2.to. can rank air as one of the least reliable modes.i n general.of course this depends on the particular cases. These airlines offer cargo . The capability of air has been greatly constrained by the physical dimensions of the cargo space in the aircraft and the aircraft lifting capacity. Air transportation has a distinct advantage in terms of loss and damage. Explain the air transport with respect to logistics Air transportation is being considered by increasing numbers of shippers for regular service. speed especially over long distances.
