This thesis is an attempt to dive beneath the surface of airspace and map how the
space is produced, in a fashion, which stratifies aeromobilities. Drawing mainly on
dialectical thinking and relational concepts of space as offered by David Harvey and
Henry Lefebvre as well as aeromobilities inspired from the ‘new mobilities paradigme’
an ensemble of methods and concepts is constituted. This ‘conceptual apparatus’
enables understanding how space, travellers and mobilities can be stratified spatially.
And the apparatus enables understanding mapping as a methodology of spatial enquiry
and representation of space. The mapping is done from conducted field observations,
the latest conducted by being a passenger/travelling researcher on the journey through
Schiphol airport-seated in SAS airbus aeroplane-through Copenhagen Airport. And
from interview conducted in 2008 and 2009.
