High yield airports?

Mon Jul 08, 2019 2:14 pm

Which metric would you use to determine which airports are the most desirable for airlines to serve on the basis of demand? Are there multiple metrics?

I assume LHR and LGA must be among the highest yielding airports in the world, since they are arguably the most severely slot restricted. It would be interesting to see a list. It might also be interesting to see the lowest yielding, one wonders why airlines don't continually reduce service to those cities in order to make them more profitable.

Domestically, the DOT has done the work. Look at Table 2 showing average yield by city, among other data sets.

London City might be even more high yield - per passenger. Possibly wall street heliport is highest yield using this logic? Or Monaco heliport and such. Samedan, Aspen, Cannes.
Considering the overall demand the major's hub airports must belong to the group you look for.
