FORECASTING MODELS FOR AIR FREIGHT DEMAND AND PROJECTION OF CARGO ACTIVITY AT U. S. AIR HUBS

This report provides a basic forecast of U.S. domestic and U.S. international air freight demand at the twenty-five large U.S. hubs for the time period 1977 to 1987 which results from exercising the models described in this report with a specific set of input variable projections. This report also documents an econometric model approach to long-term, national air freight demand forecasting. This approach provides forecasts founded on the premise that no dramatic technological or socio/political changes will occur in the forecast time period. (Author)
