THE DEMAND FOR USE OF WASHINGTON NATIONAL AIRPORT

This analysis is part of a study to explore the use of a pricing system to reduce congestion at airports. It is clear that there is considerable excess demand for the use of National Airport. The question we attempt to answer here is, how much would airlines be willing ot pay for additional slots. First the study attempts to estimate the difference in average profit per flight of operating from Washington National vs. operating from Friendship, to each of a set of cities served from both airports. Using data collected in a CAB survey conducted in November, 1967, we calculate for each market the difference in average revenue per flight from National and from Friendship and the difference in average operating cost per flight, obtaining from these the average profit advantage per flight at DCA.
