Question and answer
state three advantage and disadvantage of air transpotation
The following are some of the advantages of air transport: I. High Speed: Air transport is the fastest mode of transport and therefore suitable carriage of goods over a long distance requiring less time. [ There is no substitute for air transport when the transport of goods is required urgently. II. Quick Service: Air transport provides comfortable, efficient and quick transport service. It is regarded as best mode of transport for transporting perishable goods. III. No Infrastructure Investment: Air transport does not give emphasis on construction of tracks like railways. As no
capital investment in surface track is needed, it is a less costly mode of transport.Inspite of many advantages air transport has a number of disadvantages. These disadvantages are: I. Risky: Air transport is the most risky form of transport because a minor accident may put a substantial loss to the goods, passengers and the crew. The chances of accidents are greater in comparison to other modes of transport. II. Very Costly: Air transport is regarded as the costliest mode of transport. The operating cost of aero-planes are higher and it involves a great deal of expenditure on the construction of aerodromes and aircraft. Because of this reason the fare of air transport are so high that it becomes beyond the reach the common people. III. Small Carrying Capacity: The aircrafts have small carrying capacity and therefore these are not suitable for carrying bulky and cheaper goods. the load capacity cannot be increased as it is found in case of rails. ]
