The study forecasts the consequences of three alternative policies affecting air carrier operations at Washington National Airport WNA continued prohibition against jet operations, removal of restriction against short- and medium-range jet aircraft, and unrestricted use of WNA by all types of air carrier jets except those serving international markets. Physical activity and economic consequences of these alternatives are projected to 1980 for each of the three Washington area airports, including Dulles International and Friendship International. Estimates are given of total annual passenger traffic, total annual aircraft traffic, mix of aircraft types in air carrier operations, annual volume of general aviation traffic, cargo, and mail. The value of public benefits is derived from total trip time savings for air passengers resulting from the availability of jet services at WNA. Net revenues profit or loss accruing to the Government operators of the airports are estimated, and the noise environment surrounding WNA under the alternatives is mapped. Author
