Airport Classifications

Thu Jan 04, 2007 4:06 am

Dear all,

for a study, I have to give a short summary on various classifications of airports employed in the literature:

So far, I have included the following:
- EU Commission: airport classes A-D (based on pax numbers)
- German Federal statistical office: International versus regional airports
- German aviation law (LuftVG): airports versus airfields
- ACI: airport groups 1-4 (based on pax numbers)
- Boston Consulting Group: Primary Hubs, International O&Ds, Secondary Hubs and O&Ds, Regional airports
- Mercer Management Consulting (Primary Hub, Secondary Hub, Major O&D, Low Cost airport, leisure airport)
- Transport Canada: National air system airports

I would be happy to get to know some other classifications used by well-known institutions. F.i., do the British CAA or the US FAA publish their own classification schemes?

Thanks a lot

Quoting Airevents (Thread starter):

The FAA or DOT (I forget which) does have a classification on U.S. airports. I will try to find this out for you, and post it when I can.

Thank you, this is an important classification which I will include in the study.
If anyone knows of any additional ways to classify airports, I will be thankful to get the relevant information!

Best wishes
