The air transport industry world-wide is undergoing radical restructuring, largely driven by the effects of deregulation, enhanced competition and the general processes of globalisation in the world economy. The impacts of these changes vary spatially, however, as local and historical forces remain important in shaping the geography of air transport. This review has been prompted by the collection of papers on the geography of air transport published in a recent issue of Australian Geographical Studies. It seeks to explore the wider international context of these researches, using the Australasian experience to analyse the ways in which local factors interact with global processes to produce a complex mix of global similarities and regional particularities in air transport provision.
