FORCES INFLUENCING INTERNATIONAL AIR TRAVEL TO AND FROM NORTH AMERICA

The Aviation Demand Forecasting Committee of the Transportation Research Board, National Research Council, presented a two-day workshop on 14-15 January 1980 in Washington, D.C. on the forces influencing air travel to and from North America during the 1980s. This subject was chosen due to the accelerating growth of travel and the significant changes in travel patterns, air fares, regulatory procedures, jet fuel prices, airport congestion, new markets and gateways that have emerged during the past two years, and the considerable uncertainty about these trends for the 1980s. A plenary session the second day summarized the results of the five individual sessions held on the first day: implications of energy and jet fuel, regulatory and market policies, international airports, and the implications of changing patterns of travel in two major air travel regions--a perspective from New York, and one from Canada. Participants from leading air travel organizations, airframe manufacturers, airlines, oil companies, consultants, government officials, airports, and universities, were invited to make presentations at the individual sessions. The moderator of each session presented his group's findings at the plenary session. (Author)
