Regional cooperation and the regionalization of air travel in Central New England

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The regionalization of air traffic in Central New England since 1995, shifting traffic from Boston to regional airports, has come about as a response to factors unique to that region within the US. However, the results of regional cooperation between airport operators and the concomitant regionalization of air traffic are applicable to any region that is trying to increase metropolitan airport capacity by making greater use of smaller, regional airports. These results include benefits for travelers, "spreading the burden" of airport neighbors, and replicating the costs and benefits of air travel over a greater area.
