Welcome to the Global Spaceport Alliance

The Global Spaceport Alliance (GSA) is the voice of the emerging global spaceport community.

Our vision is to be recognized worldwide as the official organization for spaceports and the spaceport eco-system.

To accomplish this vision we will provide members with the information, data, research and networking needed for the successful planning, funding, and operation of spaceports around the world.

Point-to-Point Transportation

April 7, 1:00-2:00 pm EST

The ability to conduct extremely high-speed, long-distance transportation, including point-to-point transportation through space, will be a major game-changer for the global economy. Once it is possible to fly from one side of the Earth to the other in less than a couple of hours, it will radically change not only how we travel, but also how we communicate, and how we do business. Although it is not yet clear whether commercial point-to-point services will be based on supersonic or hypersonic flight through the atmosphere, or on suborbital flights through space, the success of potential systems will ultimately depend on both technical characteristics and on economic viability. NASA recently commissioned a market and business case analysis of this topic by an independent study team that included SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc., Deloitte, and the National Institute of Aerospace. The study considered key city-pairs, market elasticity, ticket prices, vehicle sizes, flight speeds, and vehicle range in the economic models.
