THE AIRPORT PERFORMANCE MODEL

This report describes the development of a model and companion data base for evaluating levels and qualities of service provided to the public by air carrier airports. The model is designed to translate changes in airport capabilities into public service via data describing the characteristics of demand at individual airports. The model is sensitive to airport saturation capacities, aircraft mix, time distribution of demand, airport weather, and data describing passenger movements such as loud factor, through passenger, and transfer passenger descriptions.
