FUTURE AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTH WALES AND THE SOUTH WEST OF ENGLAND
The following general conclusions were drawn from this study. The present airport system in South Wales and South-West Wales has become over-extended, in addition too many airports are competing for air transport service and attempting to offer too wide a range of air services. Continuing the present airline and airport policies would lead to a high-cost system of air services. The airport system has developed this way through the willingness of airlines, airports and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The efforts of airport management are geared almost exclusively to maximizing the volume of passenger and freight traffic rather than raising more revenue per passenger handled and overall profitability on current and capital accounts. Where local airports can economically provide an air service it is clearly offering a premium standard of service and consequently airport charges per passenger carried will normally be expected to exceed those at larger international airports.
