Small community airport choice behavior analysis: A case study of GTR
The issue of airport selection attracts considerable attention. However, most studies focus on using advanced discrete choice models to analyze airport choice behavior in metropolitan areas with several closely located, competing airports. This paper addresses passengersâ€™ choice behavior in selecting between local small community airports and more distant major commercial airport. It looks at factors affecting air travelersâ€™ airport choice behavior in cities with small community air service. Data relating to the Golden Triangle Regional Airport in Mississippi is used in logistic regressions to identify the key factors that influence air travelersâ€™ airport choices. Ticket price, experience with Golden Triangle Regional Airport and flight schedule were found to be the strongest effects.
