Catchment areas of small airports: A hybrid analysis of the Alps-Adriatic region

This paper adopts a methodology initially developed for seaport choice and applies it to catchment areas for airports in part of the Adriatic region. Unlike much of the analysis of small airports in the region, which focuses on destination airports in the region, the work considers the demands for airports by residents. The analysis differs from most other studies of this sort by combining both hard data and that from surveys of airport users, to look at the attractiveness of various airports in the region to potential travellers. From a policy perspective, good information regarding the economic attractiveness of various facilities is lacking when it comes to deciding whether airports justify additional investment or whether they continue to be useful attributes to the aviation network. The findings also have relevance for the planning of surface transportation access to airports in the region.
