Capacity expansion goal-setting for the Marabá airport based on a study on airport demand

Dimensionamento de ampliação do aeroporto de Marabá com base em estudo de previsão de demanda aeroportuária

This paper investigates whether a proposed project for increasing the nominal capacity for the Marabá International Airport to 500,000 passengers/year would be adequate. In order to do this, it uses a demand forecast approach through use of linear regressions. Three models are econometrically analyzed, and an option is made for a compromise between explanation of historical evolution and predictive capacity characteristics. It is concluded that strong indications are present that the proposed reform is insufficient in its scope.
