In the contemporary territorial context, infrastructural networks of mobility have changed social behaviour and urban structures in a relevant way. Air mobility, along with airport infrastructure, is key in the positioning of city-regions in the global network. In the past few decades the airport has become an urban element capable of structuring the city-region on a local scale.
The research in this paper tries to determine the key aspects of this infrastructure and its surrounding territory, based on the analysis of case studies located in different contexts (geographical, territorial-urban and socio-economic). This study brings to light the importance and capacity an airport can have, not only in the positioning of the region on a global level, but also in the implementation of its local structure.
Moreover, these case studies underscore the qualities that can be implemented in the territory surrounding the airport with the aim of encouraging its evolution towards a cluster. Consequently, the infrastructure acquires the implicit qualities of an urban entity identified as a NAC (Neo-tertiary Airport Cluster).
