Passengers are of prime importance in the design of an airport, since they are the reason for its existence. The objective of the study was to analyze five characteristics of commercial airline passengers at Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. Data from personal interviews conducted at Sky Harbor were analyzed. Results showed that commercially accommodated air travelers were attracted to three specific lodging areas, while locally originating passengers homes formed no particular pattern, but were located in more affluent sections of the Phoenix area. No relationship could be established between distances from homes to the airport and residents use of the airport, nor did suburban residents use the airport to a significantly greater degree than residents of Phoenix proper. Private autos were shown to be responsible for the majority of transportation to and from Sky Harbor, although rental cars were quite popular with non-resident travelers. Author
