An Essential Travel Resource

Scheduled Airlines and Business Aviation together provide industry with an essential resource—transportation that is safe- efficient and necessary for economic development. Complementary- not competitive- each offers a level of access that adds to the ebb and flow of commerce- notes Jack Olcott.

Business Aviation:
An essential travel resource

Scheduled Airlines and Business Aviation together provide industry with an essential resource—transportation that is safe- efficient and necessary for economic development. Complementary- not competitive- each offers a level of access that adds to the ebb and flow of commerce- notes Jack Olcott.

The two graphics presented below highlight the fact that business aircraft do not use the same airports as scheduled airliners. The left-hand column of Table A presents the 10 busiest U.S. airports by total passenger enplanements. (When ranked by itinerant operations of Scheduled Airlines- the list contains essentially the same locations but the order varies.) The right-hand column lists the busiest U.S airports ranked by movements of Business and General Aviation aircraft.

Business Aviation represents about 4% of the traffic at the 10 busiest airports serving Scheduled Airlines. Business aircraft also fly to airports where operations by Scheduled Airlines are non-existent- as depicted in the Chart A.

• On average- 40% of trips via business aircraft are to locations with no service by Scheduled Airlines.
• Companies that use business aircraft are also significant purchasers of Airline tickets.
• They select the form of transportation that is most able to satisfy their needs.

Conclusion: Without Business Aviation- our nation’s companies would be disadvantaged and rural America would lack an air link to economic opportunity.
