dc.description.abstract Air transport is currently one of the major branches of transport both in national and global economies. It is one of the fastest, most expensive, but at the same time also most effec- tive types of transportation. It plays a very important role in global economy, particularly in transcontinental carriage of goods and passengers. Its availability and quality constitute a powerful driving force for country’s development. International trade dynamics and demand for transport services are growing year by year. Their growth factors may be seen in context of the rising volume of goods movement and average distances of journeys. They foster development of global logistics and global supply chains, consequently leading to further selection of streams of goods movement, thereby establishing a basis for the new economic order on a global scale. Operations of modern economies depend on an efficient flow of goods, services and capital between individual markets. Air transport is a key element in combining local markets with global markets, which in turn preconditions their growth. Air freight transport, both in Poland and worldwide, is seen mostly from the angle of long- distance passenger flights. Given that, one often tends to forget the role of this transport branch with regards to freight transport. Air cargo transport is a booming branch with great development potential. This, however, is related to considerable experience and knowledge on the part of both goods carriers and owners with regards to technical capacities of a given air- craft, maintenance costs, and rule awareness. The purpose of the following study is to draw attention to air cargo as a key freight transport branch and to analyse and evaluate its current situation, inclusive of its risks and barriers. The study endeavours to determine the role and meaning of air freight transport in Polish economy. In view of the vast scope of the subject, the issues in the study were elucidated mostly on the basis of existing airports. en
