ASSESSING THE SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS OF AIRPORT CATCHMENT AREAS

The responsibility of the airline industry is to provide an adequate level of service based on the needs of the consumer. To aid air carriers in this process is attempting to describe and understand the travel tendencies of the customer. One effective way to define the consumer base is to investigate factors which directly affect a population's propensity to fly, including social and economic factors such as employment and salary. Once the socioeconomic status is established, the information can be used within a given catchment area to determine the population's propensity to fly.
