Innovative Approaches to Addressing Aviation Capacity Issues in Coastal Mega-regions

This report examines the aviation capacity issues in the two coastal mega-regions located along the East and West coasts of the United States. The report suggests integrated strategic actions to enhance decision making to address the constrained aviation system capacity and growing travel demand in the high-density, multijurisdictional, multimodal, coastal mega-regions. New and innovative processes are needed if the aviation capacity issues in these congested coastal mega-regions are going to be successfully addressed. These high-density areas invite an entirely new approach for planning and decision making that goes beyond the existing practice for transportation planning and programming that is usually accomplished within single travel modes and political jurisdictions or regions. This research will be useful for airport operators, regional transportation planners, and transportation agencies, as well as public officials at the federal, state, and local levels and other stakeholders involved in dealing with aviation capacity issues in the coastal mega-regions.
