This Special Issue aims to collect papers showing the key developments in the areas of Sustainable Air Transport Management, Aeronautical and Space Technology Operations, and human factors and performance in the context of environmental and public health impacts.
The problem of the sustainable development of air transport and the operation of aeronautical and space technology requires a systematic examination of practical knowledge and search for innovative environmentally friendly solutions, as well as eliminating the negative impacts on public properties and health. In addition to technical problems and solutions, sustainable air transport and aeronautical and space technology operations also depend on the quality of human factors in aviation and human performance of aviation personnel. A specific environment for air transport and aeronautical and space technology is our atmosphere and space with its challenges. Monitoring, modeling, and simulation of research problems, hazards, climate change research and prediction, air quality, water and soil quality at airports or their vicinity, undesirable radiation, investigation of hazardous weather phenomena, and negative impacts of aviation activity on the environment and public health (personnel health) affect the quality and levels of safety and security in aviation and in the operation of technology, which is an important prerequisite for their sustainable development.
“The Sustainable Air Transport Management and Aeronautical and Space Technology Operations in the Context of Environmental and Public Health Impacts” is the thematic topic of this Special Issue of Sustainability (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sustainability). It is organized in the framework of the United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030).
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the sustainable aviation activities, air transport and management, air traffic management, aeronautical and space technology operations, climate change, and environmental and health research related to aviation, airports and space, aerospace research, the aeronautical and astronautical education and human factors in aeronautics/astronautics, flight safety and security agenda, and quality of human performance. The keywords listed suggest just a few of the many possibilities.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
