Hello all,

I am conducting research on airfares in concentrated markets (i.e. hubs). Can anyone tell me how one goes about calculating fare per passenger mile on a specific carrier at a specific airport. That is, WHAT is the necessary data, WHERE can I find the necessary data that goes into the calculation, and HOW do I then use the data to calculate the yield? I truly appreciate all responses that helps to shed light on this for me.

Economics Prof. Steven Morrison has published a few books on the subject, which include some of the equations you may be interested in. When I wrote a paper last semester on airline deregulation, I used some of his books. Link to my paper below and you'll find links to his research. Or just do a web search for "Steven Morrison"

While not the most up-to-date information, this site provides statistics for most major U.S. cities including passengers per day between routes, market share leader, and average price paid.

Click on "airline industry data" and then on "Domestic Consumer Air Fare Reports." Table 6 will have all the information.

Wow...thanks for all that input guys! All of your tips should come in handy. Up to now, I have been working with the bts site, which is somewhat complex to navigate. They have so much data, but yes, thankfully I have Acrobat and the college network allows one to download quickly! I am, however, starting to figure some things out. I will also use the DOT site that you refer to Flycmh. Once again, thanks to Jeremy, Segmentking, and FLYCmh!
