Globalization and integration processes are characteristic of new strategies of the greater number of industries, which directly impacts economic development in Stuttgart. From a long term and global perspective, air traffic is one of the economic branches that has a large acceleration in technological development in Stuttgart. Elements that support such development are seen primarily in development of information and telecommunication systems, and in development of modern aircraft engines that lower fuel consumption but increase flight speed as the flight itself. Considering the social and economic interest of Stuttgart in creation of development politics of air traffic, it is necessary to pay attention development of all factors in air traffic when making strategic plans.
