Air Service to Small Communities in a Deregulated Industry

This article examines the current state of small community air service and hub economics at small-hub and non-hub airports. Data from Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 142: Effects of Airline Industry Changes on Small- and Non-Hub Airports is included looking at percent change in number of flights and number of seats from 2000-2017. Overall airline deregulation has concentrated more traffic at the largest hubs while small­-hub and non-hub airports have experienced the largest decline. The case studies in ACRP Report 142 show the actions communities have taken to overcome the loss in air service as well as actions that can improve the level of air service to communities.
