Air service studies provide a detailed examination of the required quality of present and future air carrier service. R.A. Wiedemann & Associates conducts all types of air service improvement studies including Essential Air Service (EAS) evaluations, Air Service Feasibility studies, statewide or regional air service improvement studies, and support for community air service promotion programs.
In recent years increased recognition has been given the value of scheduled air service to small communities. The needs of these communities are generally such that commuter service may be justified and economically feasible while service by larger major or national carriers is not. Commuter system plans identify potential points of air commuter service, evaluate alternative route structures, recommend aircraft types to be used, define appropriate schedules, and evaluate the financial implications of such service. Typically, these studies are performed either for individual airports, states, or multi-state regions.
