ACRP Policy and Planning Products Update - PHASE II

Since its inception, ACRP has produced hundreds of research reports, tools, databases, and other products. Recognizing the dynamic nature of the airport industry and the need to ensure that the program’s products reflect the latest in practice, ACRP developed a systematic process to identify products most in need of updating. Phase I reviewed ACRP’s policy and planning products (some produced more than 10 years ago) and prioritized a list of needed updates. Some of the criteria used in the decision-making are how integral the obsolete or missing content was to the integrity/usefulness of the product, the overall interest in the original publication (based on downloads), if updates are urgently needed for the product to continue to be useful to the industry, and how broadly applicable the updates will be for the U.S. airport industry. The panel reviewed that list and selected four products for updating. The objectives of this research are to update ACRP Report 98: Understanding Airline and Passenger Choice in Multi-Airport Regions, ACRP Report 132: The Role of U.S. Airports in the National Economy, ACRP Report 142: Effects of Airline Industry Changes on Small- and Non-Hub Airports, and ACRP Research Report 161: Guidelines for Improving Airport Services for International Customers.
