ANALYSIS OF AIR PASSENGER TRAVEL IN THE TWIN CITIES METROPOLITAN AREA

THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AIR PASSENGER TRIP-GENERATION MODEL REQUIRES FIRST THAT THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE AIR PASSENGER BE ANALYZED AND THEN THE NUMBER OF MODELS BE REDUCED TO THE MINIMUM. THE NEXT LIMITING FACTOR IS THE AVAILABILITY OF BASE-YEAR AND FORECAST SOCIOECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS. IN ADDITION, THE VARIABLES SHOULD ALLOW FOR A DIFFERENTIATED PROPENSITY TO AIR TRAVEL BY VARIOUS ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL GROUPS. STRATIFICATION OF INCOME AND EMPLOYMENT PRODUCES THE MOST IMPORTANT VARIABLES. THE TOTAL AIR PASSENGER TRIPS MUST BE OBTAINED THROUGH AN INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS AND WILL ACT AS A CONTROL TO ALLOW REVISION OF THE TRIP GENERATION EQUATIONS TO FUTURE AIR TRAVEL TRENDS. THE TRIP GENERATION TECHNIQUES DEVELOPED IN MORE GENERAL TRANSPORTATION STUDIES MAY SUCCESSFULLY BE APPLIED TO COMMERCIAL AIR PASSENGER TRAVEL. /AUTHOR/
