Airports and the communities they serve view robust air service as an important element for economic well-being and overall quality of life. Incentive programs are often used to encourage airlines to maintain or augment service to a community. Recent airline industry trends, including airline consolidation, use of larger aircraft, the rise of ultra-low-cost airlines, and challenges with pilot supply as well as regulatory and policy developments, have affected the significance of these programs.
The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Research Report 218: Building and Maintaining Air Service Through Incentive Programs is a guidebook offering advice for using incentive programs for growing and maintaining commercial air service. The development, execution, and monitoring of air service incentive programs can be complex, involve multiple stakeholders, and must address federal compliance issues.
An additional resource accompanying the report is Building and Maintaining Air Service Through Incentive Programs:Contractor’s Final Technical Report.
