Low-Cost Aviation: Aeromobilities Culture, Politics, and Infrastructures covers critical societal issues such as labor regimes, unequal and changing flying publics, transnational dynamics of migration, tourism, business experiences, environmental challenges and shifting territorialities of LCCs at various scales. It situates LCCs holistically within a societal-infrastructural regime rather than solely within a transport context. The book explores the changing nature of passengers’ profiles and mobile cultures, new consumption patterns and Economic Re-Configurations, as well as geopolitical and sustainability challenges. Providing a research agenda for aeromobilities, the book examines the most pressing social, cultural and political impacts of LCCs on society in different global contexts.It bridges transport and mobility studies, fostering transport sustainability and mobility justice to improve air transport management.
