Exploring Characteristics of Airport Access Mode Choice in Korea

This study explores air passenger's behavior of airport access mode choice and develops airport access mode choice models for two major domestic airports, Gimpo Airport and Daegu Airport, using data from the 2004 Airline Passenger Pilot Survey in Korea. The authors first conducted chi-squared and analysis-of-variance tests to identify whether the key explanatory variables such as trip purpose, travel time, and travel cost are statistically different among airport access modes. The test results show that trip purpose, travel distance, travel time, travel cost, age, and income are significantly different across airport access modes. Then, the authors developed logistic regression models of three types of airport access mode choice: auto and public transit, auto and bus, and auto and subway. The model results show that the choice of airport access mode is significantly affected by travel time, travel distance, trip purpose, age, gender, occupation, and income. This study also estimated access mode choice models for business and non-business travel, indicating that demographic characteristics of air passengers more significantly affect access mode choice for non-business travel than for business travel.
