Aviation Strategies International’s Dr. Abeyratne, Associate of Air Law and Policy, publishes on megatrends and the future of aviation

Montréal, August 28, 2017 – In his latest book, Dr. Ruwantissa Abeyratne, Senior Associate of Air Law and Policy at Aviation Strategies International (ASI), recently published a new book entitled Megatrends and Air Transport: Legal, Ethical and Economic Issues.

Dr. Abeyratne’s book attempts to identify and grapple with the emergent trends on legal, ethical, economic issues pertaining to the air transport industry and what we can expect to come in the future. A recurring theme of the book is the influence of ‘megatrends’, global shifts that affect the way the world operates, on air transport. This theme is addressed through an in-depth study of the effects of megatrends, starting with a detailed discussion on what they are, the book provides an essential overview of megatrends and air transport, including analytical discussions on how megatrends could affect basic issues such as nationalism and sovereignty, market access in air transport, and commercial space transport.
