STUDY OF SHORT-HAUL AIRCRAFT OPERATING ECONOMICS. PHASE 2: AN ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF JET MODERNIZATION ON LOCAL SERVICE AIRLINE OPERATING COSTS

The objectives of this phase of the study were (1) to assess the 10 year operating cost trends of the local service airlines operating in the 1965 through 1974 period, (2) to glean from these trends the technological and operational parameters which were impacted most significantly by the transition to newer pure jet, short haul transports, and effected by changing fuel prices and cost of living indices, and (3) to develop, construct, and evaluate an operating cost forecasting model which would incorporate those factors which best predicted airline total operating cost behavior over that 10-year period.
