MODEL TO ESTIMATE COMMUTER AIRLINE DEMAND IN SMALL CITIES

This paper considers the factors indicating a community's potential demand for commuter air carrier service compares these factors to a profile of commuter airline passenger characteristics, and reports the results of an extensive regression analysis to develop a model to estimate commuter airline demand in small cities. The final regression model was nonlinear in nature and incorporated community populations and measurements of isolation from the certificated air carrier transportation system. This model was the basis of a recommended program to integrate commuter air carriers into Iowa's total transportation system. /Authors/
