DIRECTIONS FOR DEVELOPING AN AIR CARGO SYSTEM PLANNING MODEL

This paper highlights the need and provides a direction for formulating a system planning model to assess the requirements in all segments of the air cargo industry. Currently operational models of the demand for and supply of air cargo services are neither sufficiently policy-sensitive nor detailed enough to be responsive to the interactions of both supply and demand. Thus, based on classical economic theory an interactive framework for a system planning model is suggested. Techniques ranging from mathematical programming to econometrics are proposed to develop the various components within the system.
