Abstract

The world air transport industry is in crisis. Many
industry commentators believe that 'the extraordinary price of fuel - is destroying [air transport industry] profitability'. The paper discusses what we believe are some early indications of the way in which forecast future rises in global oil prices and transport fares may influence mobility. It argues that the problems being experienced in the Northern Territory through declining tourist numbers foreshadow the problems that other places will face in the future.
