AIR PASSENGER TRIP CHARACTERISTICS EFFECT AIRPORT ACCESSIBILITY PLANNING

The use to be made of air transportation at an existing or potential airport is a function of the total ground plus air trip to be made by the air passenger. The passenger's residence must be considered when calculating the effect of airport accessibility on the realization of potential trips. Simultaneously, consideration must be given to the quality of service that is available at the airport newest nearest to the passenger versus that which is available at a competing airport because there is an inter-relation of ground miles between residence and airport and the effect of the relative quality of services available at the individual airports. There are substitutes for air travel and among them is the very practical one of making fewer trips and making them of longer duration as substantiated by recent Los Angeles air passenger surveys.
